Making "Almighty Idol"

Have you watched Almighty Idol yet? If so, you'll enjoy this brief look behind the low-budget scenes.

David drew some rough concept sketches for the idol (seen below). He then handed them off to Danny, who constructed the idol out of cardboard and a lot of Make-It-Stone.

Shooting the sketch while hiking/climbing was pretty strenuous. Beforehand David did some rough thumbnails (below), trying to figure out what shots were necessary for the opening montage, but a lot was captured on the fly.

Then Matt combined forces with Gooding to create the tribal beats, and the video was complete. So much time and energy put into a two-and-a-half minute final product. The secret ingredient: love.
