RUFF Seas... from Luke Bender on Vimeo.

Ruff Seas is a video inspired by the bass player from the band Novalus, Yuri Zupancic. I was asked to run some video during an upcoming show for Novalus at "The Replay Lounge" in Lawrence Kansas and we had videos for the first 4 songs in the set but not the last song. Yuri described the song by saying, "it is like a pirate ship in a crazy storm." We then proceeded to create the set in our living room and just started shooting. After a couple of hours we started to discuss the need for an ending and before we could even speak my dog Dakota arrived in the scene to create the perfect ending, hence "RUff" seas.
