Ju Drum’s anthem REBEL!

Branding for Bands

Hi Peeps! This is Tim Cash writing today to tell you about the NEW NEWS!! Well we’ve inched our way into the independent DIY music scene pretty well through our high-end low-price formula for Music Videos. Now it’s time to bring that formula to full branding for musical artists. The whole point of a music video is to make an artist look larger than life. well it should be the same with their whole brand from the music video to website,twitter page,youtube,reverb nation and more. Think of it from the eye of a booking agent. When they look for artists to represent they are looking or an easy sell. All sales people are looking for the easy sell. So when they go to your site and see that you designed it your self and your buddy shot the videos what does it look like to them…”amateur hour” no matter how good the sound is the BRAND is a reflection of where the band is at that point in their career.
Please check out our first BRAND creation for Hilst & Coffey! the package included a logo,web site, pro photography, twitter,youtube,facebook,and reverb nation skins that match the site. A t-shirt design and a sticker design!

CHECK IT OUT!!

JAMAICA

Tim Cash music video director with Far From Earth Films here!Just returned from a 6 music video tour through Northern California and Jamaica! 2 with Judrums from Nigerian on the North Coast and 4 music videos for JahSun in Jamaica. The trip was incredible and I really felt the buzz of publicly and the beginning of a long career in reggae music in Jamaica. I made tons of connections via Oufah Media out of Kingston JA, and got to see some of my music video work on TV. Currently we have the #1 music video on Hype TV with Standing On All Threes by Omi. and we got to shoot with to Jamaican Stars in Richie Spice & Kabaka Pyramid. The sky is the limit and we continue to reach for the stars and stay Far from Earth!!

Who says you can’t shoot a Music Video on the Red Scarlet at 5k

Hi again everyone! Tim Cash of Far from Earth Films and Far From Earth Creative here in Bend Oregon. Well had the chance to put my new RED Scarlet to the test as it arrived just days before 2 BIG Music video shoots for Jamaican pop sensation Omi. We shot one of the videos at regular speed 24fps at 4k and it looks gorgeous! But the other music video I wanted to try something a little different. In the past I’ve experimented with variable frame rates for singing shots. shooting at 36fps and having the talent sing the song at a sped up 150% and I’ve also done 18fps. and had them sing to the song at 75%. when put into a 24 fps timeline each look is different but adds drama. slowmo singing or sped up singing. but this was the first time I decided to shoot an entire music video at 12fps. and have the singer sync to a 50% slowed down version of the song.then edit at 24fps. the result is a highly animated sped up look and we got away with 5k on the Scarlet! not stills but video. I’m sure someone has shot 5k video on the Scarlet but anyway….we are releasing the video today and I’ll be sure to post it up on this post as soonas we release it!!

Jamaican Pop Star “Omi” in Bend for music video w/ Tim Cash




I Everyone! Far From Earth Films, Tim Cash. just catching a breath here after a long week of production. Have had the pleasure of hosting Oufah Media from Jamaica in Bend Oregon on what has been the coldest days of the year for a full fledged winter flick titled “TAKE IT EASY”! One of the biggest pieces to telling this adventure story has been helicopter shots! I’ve never had the budget to hire a heli- pilot and cinematographer before but felt for the story we were trying to tell and the vast scope of wilderness we were dealing with was only coverable from a chopper. We shot in the Deschutes National Forest right up near Mt Bachelor, A ski area 22 miles outside of Bend. As Omi travels deeper and deeper into the wilderness he finds what he’s been searching for. We also captured shots at a cave near by and at the FARfromEARTH STUDIO here in Bend.

The 2nd music video “FIREWORKS” was shot entirely at the FFE studio and included some set building which was great as we really got to control the light . we also experimented with some frame rates at 12fps at 5k on the RED.

anyway, look for the music videos! coming soon!!

Red Scarlet X : shooting right out the Box!

Just pulled the new RED SCARLET X CAMERA out of the box and started filming. the dynamic range is amazing. especially coming from the 5d. things look sharper and more detailed. the shadows show through amazing. what would have been totally lost is right there infront of your eyes. Anyway with no one nearby to capture I turned the camera on myself and recorded this in 6 takes from 6 different angles. and that pretty much filled up the new 64GB card and I was off to the edit! let me know what you think! have a wonderful day from Tim Cash at Far from Earth films

Pennan Brae’s new glow light music video

Hi Everybody! Tim Cash back again. I can now officially say I’ve shot a black light glow light music video. check! I really had no idea what this was going to look like before we got into it. but wow! its weird and you’re just not sure what you’re looking at sometimes. I love it! the colors are rich and the bubbles are bright! The performance and dance shots we shot in the FFE studio under huge black lights with 2 people on either side of the camera blowing black light bubbles. the glow suits were purchased from glowcity out of New York. The second location was the Peterson Rock Garden just minutes from the studio. it’s a trippy little place with castles built from really cool rocks found within 82 miles from the location by the orginal owner in the 1950’s. anyway said enough! hope you enjoy!
