Live @ Bakerland…
We like to do live audio and video @ Bakerkand, and we have the space to do it well, and believe the best recordings are those done live with passion and energy. We like to film concept music video’s as well and have projects booked in for next year. Check out our video’s to date to see some very special performances.
We have provided many product videos for Audio Technica and continue to work with them. Rodrigo works at A.T (see his bio), when he’s not sorting audio for the Moto GP or the Olympics he’s making videos of products.
We offer location videos for those bands who have a specific look in mind, we find that once bands see our studio they tend to choose to come to us (without our influence). We look forward to taking our camera’s out and shooting on location, give us a shout if you have some ideas!

Experience with Bands such as I Plead Guilty, The Tomicks and You’re The Decoy to solo musicians such as Reece Jacob and Richie Haynes has allowed Justin to continue developing skills and knowledge but most importantly building great relationships.
