Dialogue Tool in a (YouTube) Box

Here’s a short video produced by JFA’s own Trent Horn: What do you think?

Music Video Can Be Interesting

Not your average “let’s-fake-playing-our-electronic-instruments-in-a-desert-a-million-miles-away-from-electricity” music video: Note: I can’t vouch for the content of the song, since I don’t understand it. If you know what it’s about, share in the comments.
