The maker of Tim Pawlenty's slick presidential-exploratory announcement video is Lucas Baiano, a 22-year-old up-and-comer in the political-video ranks, according to marketing news site ClickZ. He also used to support Hillary Clinton:

When Clinton dropped out of the race, Baiano dropped his support for Democrats all together, deciding he couldn't switch his allegiance to Barack Obama. He became a John McCain backer, and did a bit of work with his campaign - though none video related. "I wouldn't have made it with the McCain campaign if it wasn't for Hillary," said Baiano.
