Blue October Get The Chills and Are Hitting The Road (A Top Story)
The video was shot with a Phantom Flex High Speed camera, which films at 1080p with just over 2,500 frames per second and allowed for the extreme high quality capture of the super slow motion scenes. The camera was chosen because director Jeff Ray wanted the video to have "a new look."
Three different Texas locations served as the backdrop for "The Chills" video. The band's performance was shot at the Triple Crown in San Marcos, a tiny little hole in the wall bar that happens to be the site of one of Blue October's very first performances. The Blue October fans that comprised the audience for this performance were invited to the video shoot via Facebook. Many of the exterior shots were actually shot on the property of Justin's house - while an actual party was going on inside complete with DJ, dancing and an unending flow of margaritas. The bonfire scenes and fireworks were shot on the beach in Galveston, which was necessitated because of the extreme drought and resulting burn ban throughout most of central Texas. - more on this story
