T.D.B. (Tha Deadly Boyz) comprises of Western Australian born 'Stinga T' & 'Big Sexy'. They are an Aboriginal Hip-Hop/Rap duo based in Adelaide, South Australia.

T.D.B. wanted the 'Rise' music video to show their beginnings in underground hip-hop/rap & to show their determination to make their music mainstream. The clip was shot over two days in various locations across Adelaide, the outskirts of Mt Barker, Salisbury where the boyz grew up, Billy Hyde Studios where they record music & near the old wool shed in Port Adelaide.

T.D.B wanted a gritty urban/street feel mixed with black & white images to bridge the step from the underground to mainstream. Lucas opted to use a Sony PDW-700 XDCAM HD Camcorder as he was familiar with the camera & was very satisfied with the images it produced. The team decided to pour a majority of the budget into capturing the best quality images with the best possible quality system available to them. The boyz also wanted to showcase the street scenes of the music video with a prestige quality look which Lucas felt the Sony XDCAM HD Camera delivered.

'Rise' has aired on Channel V's Channel U since March 2009.
