We are all in this together and we consider all of you part of the Family. See a pattern here? We're going to continue to do these videos with you guys as long as all of you keep asking for them! 

THIS IS OUR 3RD AND FINAL FANPOWERED VIDEO OF 2012 SO DON'T MISS YOUR CHANCE TO BE IN IT! 

JOIN THE CRAYVOLUTION!

  • WHO?  YOU!! WE want YOU to be IN the new "CRAY BUTTON" video and we need YOU to back it! This is Nadaddy and Soul Glow Activatur talkin' to y'all on behalf of all of Family Force 5. Once again, we have filled up whiteboards, scribbled hilarious diagrams on notepads, scratched out ideas on napkins, done Google+ hangouts, and racked our brains to come up with an awesome video treatment for "Cray Button". This time, instead of a giant Zombie party, we are about to have the biggest, most insane two days of shooting possible. Since the success of Zombie, we've heard all of your requests, loud and clear, to have our next video shot in your town! All of our social media outlets have been buzzing, so we're going to give everyone another chance to be IN a video WITH FAMILY FORCE 5! Have you always dreamed about being in a Family Force 5 music video with Crouton, Soul Glow Activatur, Nadaddy, and Chapstique? Your dream just came true. We're not hiring actors, and we're not going to audition people. This video stars YOU, and we're giving some more love back to all of our loyal fans! 
  • Please make sure you read over this ENTIRE project BEFORE signing up for reward tiers! (Especially the "Cray Logistics" section!)
  • WHERE? Not everyone got a chance to be a part of "Zombie" in Ohio, so this time, based on your vocal fan demand, this video will be shot in DALLAS, TEXAS! Everything's CRAYER in TEXAS!! RIGHT? That means everyone in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, and all the major surrounding cities need to be there. We chose this location as a central location to many cities that are home to tons of cray FF5 fans. There are many major cities in multiple states, all within about 4 hours of Dallas! We want to see people there from Amarillo, Oklahoma City, Abilene, Little Rock, Shreveport, Austin, Houston, San Antonio, Midland/Odessa, Tulsa, etc.! BE THERE! This video will not work without LARGE numbers of people! 
  • WHEN? This is a 2 DAY SHOOT! There will be a giant MUDFEST SHOOT all day on Friday, July 6. There will also be a giant WAREHOUSE SHOOT all day on Sunday, July 8. You may choose to attend only one of those shoots, OR you may choose to attend both! Look carefully at the reward tiers and read them all the way through. All tiers specify in the title whether they are a 1 day pass, or a 2 day pass. There are Mudfest Shoot only tiers, and Warehouse Shoot only tiers, as well as tiers that allow you to attend both days. These are designed specifically to cater to those of you who may have scheduling conflicts on one day or the other. In addition to the two shoot days, there will be a "Cray Button Wrap-Up Celebration Concert" in the warehouse location on Sunday night. Every one of you that backs us at the $60 level or above and participates in this video will get one (1) ticket to the concert included! Doors for this will be at 9pm. The exact shoot times, meeting locations, parking areas etc. will be disclosed as we get closer to the date of the video and will be sent only to backers to ensure the safety of all participants. Clear your schedules, come home from your vacation early, whatever you need to do to make sure you don't miss this opportunity of a lifetime! 

GET CRAY ALL DAY, IT'S YOUR FULL TIME JOB!

REMINDER: IF YOU SIGN UP FOR A TIER THAT IS $60 OR HIGHER, YOU RECEIVE A FREE FF5 CRAY TANK TOP AND 1 TICKET TO THE CONCERT SUNDAY NIGHT!

For those of you participating in the video, here's an overview of what will be happening. Scroll down to see more information that will apply to those of you who are 2-DAY PARTICIPANTS!

  • MUDFEST SHOOT FRIDAY JULY 6- This will be an all day, outdoor, daylight shoot in a giant mud pit. You WILL get dirty and you WILL need to bring a change of clothes to get into afterwards. This video will have some patriotic (Craytriotic?) themes throughout and all of you will need to be dressed completely, head to toe, in red, white, or blue, depending on the team you signed up for. If you are on the white team, make sure you wear something underneath the white clothes that is NOT see-through. Modesty is the rule here, and remember, these clothes will be soaking wet. Wear something you don't mind ruining! If you get squeamish when you get a little dirt under your fingernails, then go sign up for the warehouse party because this one is gonna get durrrrrrrrtyyyyyyy!!!!! Wear waterproof sunscreen! Don't worry, we will hose everyone down when we're done if you're nice. As a bonus, you will receive an official "CRAY" FF5 tank-top AT THE END of the shoot! 
  • WAREHOUSE SHOOT SUNDAY JULY 8-This will be an indoor, dance party scene with LOTS of flashing lights. If you have a medical condition that flashing lights would potentially aggravate, stick to the mudfest scene. We are gonna have a huuuuuge dance partayyyyyy!!! We gon' get loud! Don't worry about having to learn a dance or anything like that. This one will be purely free-form chaos, as CRAY as possible the entire time. If you sign up for this day, you will receive an official "CRAY" FF5 tank-top when you sign in at Registration that morning. This will be what you wear for the video! Dress in all red, white, or blue, according to the team you picked, and don't be afraid to be creative with your wardrobe. You'll be wearing the tank-top we provide you, but I wanna see some awesome hats, shoes, pants, gloves, shirts(underneath the tank top) etc. that match your team color, but blow our minds! Go for glitzy, flashy, reflective, whatever you want, just make sure you match the red, white, or blue team you are on. I won't give away too much, but be ready to dance, crowd surf, etc. Also, bring a small American flag to wave. By small, I mean, the little ones you would use in a Fourth of July Parade! One more thing, bring your cameras WITH flashes so you can take pictures and contribute to the flashing chaos! 
  • 2-DAY PARTICIPANTS-Afterthe receive your tank-top at the end of the Mudfest shoot, you will need to bring your Official "CRAY" FF5 tank-top to the Warehouse shoot so you can wear it there. Also, you will receive a 2-Day pass at Registration the morning of the Mudfest shoot. That pass will be the only way you will get into the Warehouse shoot, so don't forget it! Once again, you need your 2-day pass AND your CRAY tank-top to get into the Warehouse shoot! (Don't forget a little American Flag to wave for the Warehouse Shoot too!) 
  • WE NEED LARGE NUMBERS OF PEOPLE! This video is all about large crowds of people hitting the "CRAY BUTTON" and losing their minds! I can't drive this point home enough. We need TONS of people to sign up for this to make it look like we want it to. We are looking for 500-1000 people total to make this look insane! That's 2 to 3 times MORE people than we had for the "Zombie" shoot, but with all the major cities not that far from Dallas, I know you guys will all show up!! 

 CRAY REWARDS! 

REMINDER: IF YOU SIGN UP FOR A TIER THAT IS $60 OR HIGHER, YOU RECEIVE A FREE FF5 CRAY TANK TOP AND 1 TICKET TO THE CONCERT SUNDAY NIGHT!

  • EVERYONE that backs us at a $60 level or higher will receive one ticket to the "Cray Button Wrap-Up Celebration Concert" that will take place the evening of Sunday, July 8th! (More tickets may become available at a later date) 
  • EVERY tier that is $100 or above is a 2-Day Pass Tier. This means you can come on BOTH shoot days and you will need to follow all the guidelines pertaining to 2-day participants. If you sign up for a 2-day pass but can't make it on of the days, that's ok, but we want you there! 

CRAY LOGISTICS!

Kids, parents, brothers, sisters, moms, dads, uncles, grandparents, listen up! 

These are some things you need to be aware of:

  • THE MINIMUM AGE REQUIREMENT IS 14 YRS OLD AND ANYONE UNDER 18 WILL NEED A PARENT OR GUARDIAN WITH THEM ON SET THE ENTIRE TIME. There are NO exceptions to this rule. There will be parent/guardian forms for you to fill out and sign that you will need to bring with you to the shoot. Those forms will be sent to you via Kickstarter update to the email you provide when you sign up. 
  • REGISTRATION-Everyone will go through a registration process on site and be required to turn in their signed liability waiver forms. You will receive these forms via a Kickstarter Update that will be sent to the email address you use to sign up to back this project with Amazon Payments. When you sign up to back this project, be sure to use an email address that works well for you and that you check often. Also, sign up with the exact name you want to be used in the credits. If you are paying for someone else, set up a seperate account in their name, and just use your own payment information to pay for it. There will be many informational updates sent to that email address that you will need to read. For 1-day participants, have your forms in hand, go straight to registration as soon as you arrive on set, and check in. For 2 day-participants, check in only one time at the Mudfest Shoot on Friday and bring your tank-top, American Flag, and 2-day passes to get into the Warehouse Shoot on Sunday.
  • PASSES-For both 1 and 2 day pass participants, your Official FF5 "Cray" tank-top is your pass to get into the "Cray Button Wrap-Up Celebration Concert". If you are a 1-day Mudfest Shoot participant, then bring your "Cray" tank-top that you received at the end of the day, and you can get into the concert Sunday night as well. If you are there for the Warehouse Shoot, then just stick around for the show! All of you 2-day pass participants will receive a 2-day pass when you register at Mudfest registration the first day, that will allow you access to the Warehouse Shoot. (Again, 2 day pass people, don't forget to bring your 2 day pass, your little American Flag, and your "Cray" tank top to the Warehouse shoot. You will not have to wait in the registration line a second time, but you will need all 3 of those things to get in.)  

REMINDER: IF YOU SIGN UP FOR A TIER THAT IS $60 OR HIGHER, YOU RECEIVE A FREE FF5 CRAY TANK TOP AND 1 TICKET TO THE CONCERT SUNDAY NIGHT!

  • It will be your responsibility to bring your own food and water to get you through the day. (unless specified otherwise by your reward tier)
  • You will need to provide your own transportation to and from the Dallas location(s). 

           All these requirements exist for maximum safety and fun! 

    If your schedule is to "Cray"-zee, then please....
