Here is Jeff working with Paul Foss shooting a sequence where rifles are being cut up.

The client is "The Post War Orchestra", a group of musicians that re-use, re-purpose and re-cycle militaria into musical instruments, and whilst they do already have quite a number of functioning instruments, they need lots more(At the moment they are more of a 5-piece, than an orchestra!) and are going for funding via an organisation called kickstarter.

The video is the key promotional method, so a lot of effort(and argument!) went into it's making

I'll tell you more about kickstarter as the week progresses.

pete from blue mountains, Australia

wonderful image, I feel like I am there in the room too...
is this HDR?

@pete: Absolutely straight shot, with no PP at all, however, because there was artificial lighting there as required by the video work(You can see one of the LED light panels on the right of the shot), my job was made very easy.
