Hey Everyone!! My name is Tim Cash. I shoot,edit and direct music videos. Most times alone with my red camera and van full of gear! I recently completed my first mini tour of the fall/winter heading south to California. The tour started in Arcata, California with the first video being for Dubtonic Kru (Jamaica) on their latest riddim EVERLASTING LOVE, also the name of their tune produced by Sick Donkey Records out of Washington State. 2 full days of shooting, thrown off a public bus, many beautiful faces,singing shots in the redwoods, kids drawing hearts with chalk and a scene at the Humboldt State University campus. The video is in the edit phase and will probably be the first video completed of the 5 on the trip.
The next 4 days were dedicated to Jah Sun’s 2 new songs, one of which is on the same “Everlasting Love Riddim” produced by Sick Donkey Records. Its called “COSMIC” and is about Jah Sun’s strong and beautiful wife Crystal. She appears in the video doing some insane yoga moves. Love the lighting we were able to achieve in this piece! one of my favs for sure!!
Next music video was mathmatics by Jah Sun! The riddim was produced by Heavy Roots out of Europe…i think. The song is all about the sacred geometry and how math ties everything together. keep a close ear to the lyrics on this one as Jah Sun goes pretty deep and we had an amazing artist in RAS TERMS painting a timelapse of the imagery. The edit is looking amazing!! For Jah Sun s singing shots I was able to find an abondoned mill or factory or something. pretty epic location and was able to bust out some pretty gangsterylicious shots of Jah Sun inside. CAN’T WAIT TO SHARE!!!
The next video shot…still in Arcata, California was for Noah (Costa Rica) on the Everlasting Love Riddim again produced by Sick Donkey Records. His song is called “Why You So Evil”. Again, searching through back alleys was able to find some pretty compelling locations to shoot the singing shots for this video. The story will be added later with additional shooting and stock footage. Another great one on the “Everlasting Love Riddim” by Sick Donkey Records.
After wrapping these 4 videos I headed up into the hills along the 299(Trinity River HWY) to say hello to Mykal Somer & Travis Barter (2 other compelling reggae artists) hang for minute, get some rest and then head deeper into the hills for the 5th and final video of the trip! Marcio’s (BRAZIL) “Abuso”. Marcio is an experimental artist blending some cool sonds with hip hop and a touch of reggae. he is from Brazil and his song is in Portugese…except for a quick verse from Ju Drum (in english). Another great experience! we found some pretty amazing locations and really puLled off some magic. The 2nd day of shooting was in Redding,California for some city shots….and then I got in the van and drove back to Bend Oregon where I am today. simultaneously editing on 5 music videos until I head back south on the Decemeber tour for 4 more music videos in the same region!
Well, thx for listening everyone!! Feeling pretty blessed to spend my life making a living shooting music videos and collaborating with artists!! If you are ever interested in a music video for your song I offer the cheapest prices in the business for the level of production I create with the most modern equipment from the RED camera to a 20ft. camera crane!
here are a few pics taken by the artists during filming. sorry there is not more.. its a bit “one man band” style so I never have a chance to get pics! enjoy!
