    Cool how they did it, but it still looks like an amateur video from the 80's.

    It's kind of like taking a picture, adding some crappy, generic Photoshop filter, then pretending to be an artist :p

    Maybe some of you are missing the point...?

    Photobooth just takes your webcam and Apples real time (RT) cheap effects and applies them as they are displayed/recorded. It's part of OS X.

    Just to shoot footage for a standard music video (if things are planned out and go well) on HDCAM cost about $50K-70K in production costs (staff, rentals and consumables). These guys borrowed some laptops and shot it with the built in webcams. Done.

    Post-Production looks like it cost a little bit (less than avg) with what was done but the footage pre-defined the post objectives.

    The savings was ridiculous not to mention the hype value.... I liked it. If I was in an up and coming band, I'd be looking at this and coming up with similar ideas.
