There are a lot of people we owe thanks and credit to, but we don't want to risk making them culpable and/or embarrassing them for associating with us.

Droptree, guerilla crew.
Lack of permits, now whatcha gonna do?
We gonna go incognito, and never cut our roll
And spray and pray, until there’s some delay.
Then we gonna stand around and all look together.
And tell the client we’re waitin’ for better weather.
We roll deep with forty Peli’s.
Who needs talent when you got all this gear, see!
Go to Droptree.
Go to Droptree.
Go to Droptree for HD delivery.
Jambox blastin’, talent castin’, tally light flashin’, lights camera action.
Goin’ at my own speed, f*** the AD.
I’m spendin all my downtime at crafty.
HD delivery for your mobile and TV,
Solid state memory, easy rig accessory.
Wardrobe. MoHo. We're on set. Around the globe.
Walkie Check. This is 4Real.
Ya know I got the budget so let’s make a deal.
Cuttin’ costs like a surgeon.
Pass van it be swervin.
Cause I drive like Joburg.
This is unnervin’.
Where'd you learn to edit brah?
We cut it faster than ya.
Ten shots per second, don’t believe me, check the reel ya.
Your wack style makes me chafe.
Bet you’re afraid to stray from center cut safe.
Triple bids are for the birds!
Treatment and pre-pro are four letter words!
Droptree is the team.
Our methods seem obscene.
But when you see it on screen
You know we’ll be redeemed.
MIO LOOKIN’ GOOD!
He busted out the flowbee.
HOW YOU GET THAT SHOT?
A Boosted and a Movi.
Local crews be thinking:
“These guys DON’T KNOW SH**!”
But by the time we wrap,
They know that WE’RE LEGIT!
We grab a case of Coors Light for the post game.
My claim to fame is robot through the frame.
ROBOT THROUGH THE FRAME BRIDGE
Gettin’ in our own shots more than WE SHOULD!
That professional? NOT AT ALL! But damn we look good.
Speaking of being pros, we’ll let you be judge and jury.
Here’s our checklist now, comin’ at you in a hurry.
PRO TIP ONE!
Talent budget’s low.
THROW BRIAN IN THERE!
Client will never know.
PRO TIP TWO!
Dealin’ with your client.
Learn to push back without seemin’ defiant.
“Excuse me there Matt, your shot’s looking really dark.
And this might sound stupid, but why’s there black bars?”
The temptation’s there to tell ‘em how it is:
“It’s called anamorphic, we talked about this!”
But take a deep breath, and reassess.
They’re signing checks and that’s your means of success.
So don't go Art House, son, and bite the hand that feeds ya.
When dumb ideas start rolling in just hide where they can’t see ya.
