November Music Video Tour (recap)

Posted on 23 November 2013 by Tim Cash

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!

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!!

LIFE IS A BLESSING

Posted on 03 October 2012 by Tim Cash

Hey Everyone! Tim Cash of Far from Earth Films here! In the summer 2012 Jah Sun approached me to do a piece that was about his uncle and the hardship and changes that had fallen on his life. It sounded like a challenge and the first order of business was finding an actor that could transform into a street dweller or in this case turn into a wealthy looking middle-aged man. We hired actor Wayne Newcomb he nailed it and came dressed for success. we shot his street scenes then sent him to the stylist to get studded up for his part as the suit.
we shot this video over 2 days in Bend Oregon. big thankyou to the Old mill for letting us sit in their beautiful flowers. Kristen and Mark for providing their warm beautiful home. Scott Jacobson for his help with our hospital location and his wonderful performance! thx again everyone!

HEART LIKE A LION MUSIC VIDEO

Posted on 04 April 2012 by Tim Cash

Hey Everyone! Tim Cash Oregon Filmmaker here. Here as in Bend Oregon! Back from “The Bay” !

The 2nd music video we shot on our trip and first to be released was “Heart Like A Lion” . The first single off of Jah Sun’s new album “Battle The Dragon”.  The shoot could not have come together better. Also featured in the video is Peetah Morgan of Morgan Heritage fame! Super easy to work with and totally PRO!

San Francisco is one of my favorite cities in the world. Its beautiful, its rusty , its clean, its dirty and so many things. This was a pleasurable experience for me as I got to  showcase the city and one of my favorite metal structures in the world. The Golden Gate Bridge! Ever since growing up in Jacksonville, Florida and always seeing that bridge in movies and tv I’ve had a fascination with it! So to wheel in and nail these crane shots in less than a half an hour and wheel out with GOLD was very gratifying!

I had the pleasure of working with Jah Sun again who has become a great friend throughout the years! He thinks BIG and I like that.  So we always seem to pull off some pretty BIG videos!

Our actor Ras Terms is a Bay Area Fine Street Artist with murals all over the city! And an incredible artist to boot! For having no acting experience he did an amazing job.

He lives in Oakland where we shot his home scenes. and our warehouse scene was shot in Hayward just south of Oakland. All the job hunting footage was shot on Market St. in San Francisco. So we definitely did some driving on this project!
