The band “The Dead and Their Weapons” from Aitkin conceived a bizarre music vide

Kicking up dust


Kevin Ballinger, a 2011 honors graduate of the Central Lakes College communication art and design program, contributed photographic creativity to the annual Music Video Camp at his alma mater.

Ballinger, owner of D3 Design in Brainerd and an ADDY Award winner last spring at CLC, helped an Aitkin area metal band assemble some unusual images to incorporate into their music video during a five-day project based at the Staples campus of CLC.
