New Music Video “Time vs. Money”

Our new music video “Time vs. Money” is here!

This video was directed by Shaun Clarke (who also directed our interactive video “How Does It Feel to Be in Love?” in 2011), and it features two extremely talented dancers, Kirsten Evans & Alex Lantz, with choreography by Viktor Plotnikov.  We could not be happier with how this video came out.  The amount of talent, time, effort, and love that went into creating this is truly amazing.  Thank you so much to everyone involved!

In the next few days, we’ll be doing a “Making of” series of posts on our website, with words from Shaun, Viktor, Kirsten and Matt on how this video and song came together, so keep an eye out.  We really hope you enjoy the video.  Please help us share it with everyone!  And be sure to download the song for free if you haven’t already.
