Here's what Ben has to say about the making:
(from radicalface.com)

"Electric President: The Violent Blue is now pressed, and the preorder stuff has all gone to manufacturers. Should have everything totally wrapped up in a couple weeks. I also shot a video with my long-time friend Mark Hubbard. We came up with the concept over coffee one night, and then figured out a budget the budget always being whatever money I can personally spare at the time. In this case, I had $150. For location, I really wanted to shoot everything on the beach at night. I love the beach at night, and since that was a launching point for a lot of this record, it seemed appropriate. But it's not real easy conditions to shoot a video. There was no natural light to speak of, and it was cold and windy and somewhat miserable. So most of our budget went to renting a generator to power lights, and to feeding everyone who volunteered to help. The costumes for the creatures ( we went a vague sort of sci-fi theme for this) were made out of wet suits, battery powered lights, duct tape and cut up sheets. I think it came out pretty good, considering all the things we had to work around. I'll post some production stills once the video is posted. It's funny to see how awful we all look when it's not totally dark.

But I gotta say, going in the ocean in Winter really sucks. I guess it's no surprise I've been sick. But the video should be posted on youtube and vimeo pretty soon. I'll post a link once it's up. And thanks again to the volunteers (Curtis, Micah, Chris, Micheal and Boese, to be specific about it)."
