I just bought the combo pack made by Black Eye. It includes a fisheye lens and a macro/wide-angle lens made for mobile phone cameras. The lenses are attached to the camera with a magnet which is glued on the phone. This makes it easy to use since there is no need for additional phone covers. I believe these same lenses are sold under different brands, and Tom and Jesse have already bought their own.

The fisheye lens is the main reason I bought this set. […] Read more!

Right on Kamppi

Tom

We played at the Kamppi Center in downtown Helsinki last Friday and I got to say, it was pretty awesome! Or maybe even more than that. It was f’in insane!

Kamppi is one of the biggest shopping centers in Helsinki with two bus terminals, so it wasn’t a surprise that there would be people there. In addition to that our showtime was at prime time at 5pm when there’s most traffic going through. But still! […] Read more!

Showtime! Today we our acoustic endeavors at one of the most crowded shopping centers in Helsinki. We’re playing at the bottom floor of the Kamppi center at 5pm as a part of a Spring season opening event. The event is free for all ages.

There’s even been some advertising around the city of our upcoming performance. It’s always nice and surprising to see your own face in an ad board somewhere. Or at least in this case. […] Read more!

How to Color Grade a Vlog

Tom asked about the colors in our recent tour vlog, so I decided to go through how it was color graded. I don’t like to watch videos straight from the camera, but I don’t want to spend a lot of time and over color our vlogs either. So I try to find a balance between the colored and the natural look.

The intro scene of the Dog’s Home trip was shot at Sello on a cloudy afternoon. […] Read more!

We played Tampere and it was awesome

We played at Dog’s Home, Tampere on Friday and even with some major setbacks we had a blast.

So what were the setbacks then? Well, before we even got to Tampere, we ran into some trouble with the van we had rented. We were almost at our rehearsal place, ready to load our gear into the van when it suddenly broke down. Not really sure what happened but all of a sudden the van decided it was not going to be moving another inch. […] Read more!

Hey, we’re playing at Provinssi!

We got some pretty great news yesterday. Provinssirock, one of the biggest festivals in Finland, announced new acts for the next Summer’s festival. And one of them was MadCraft. Hey wow, that’s us!

Well, of course, we knew about that already some time ago but it still felt great to see our name and faces on Provinssi’s website and Facebook. So that’s it then. We’ll be playing at Provinssirock on Saturday June 28th. […] Read more!

New drum cover: Blink-182 – Please Take Me Home

Otto

Otto

Hello friends! Time to write about drumming once again. A while ago we uploaded a new drum cover that I’m actually pretty proud of. At the beginning of the whole idea of drum covering, I wanted to test my skills in playing the tougher Blink-182 songs. I guess I also wanted to demonstrate the amazing talent Travis Barker really has in his grooves. To be able to play Blink with drums is not to eat a piece of cake. […] Read more!

We continue to tour Finland next friday by playing at Dog’s Home, Tampere. Now, Tampere, of course, being one of the biggest cities in Finland. We’ve played our fair share of acoustic shows there in the past few years but not too many rock shows. So, it’s definitely nice to play a proper kick-ass show in Tampere.

As we are the main act of the evening we’ll play around midnight. But you shouldn’t wait until then to come by since there are two awesome bands playing there with us. […] Read more!
