The Nobility “Gentle Giant” Video

So, last week we were asked to be a part of the newest Nobility video “Gentle Giant”.  Stephen (keyboardist in video) said something about a scientist and so naturally, I was in.  Mindy decided to opt out and play a more behind the scenes roll (photographer).  I didn’t really know what I was getting into but it sounded like fun.  The Nobility guys are really cool and creative so I figured whatever it was it would be neat-o (yeah, neat-o).  When I was being briefed on what was about to go down Sean informed me the entire video would be shot in one continuous take (bonus points if you can guess how many tries this took).  The hardest part was keeping a straight face.  Those of you that know me know that I am not usually a serious person, I think I deserve an Oscar for keeping it together and not laughing.  If you haven’t heard The Nobility, stop reading this and check them out.  They’re on iTunes or you can visit their site. Anyway, a few hours later it was a wrap and this is what we ended up with, enjoy.

So while I was busy making a fool of myself, Mindy was taking some photos and wondering why she married me.  Here are some of her shots! 🙂
