Livewire - Out Of Style Feat. Jim Jones from Ashley Smith Films on Vimeo.

I’m just getting this up and running on my vimeo account. We shot this back in March. The day before Amatus’s Messin video, which was the day my son Tyler came along.

This was a fun shoot, thanks to Livewire I got to meet Jim Jones and Fred the Godson. Both were really cool guys I enjoyed working with. I’m glad for the opportunities Live gives me and I hope for many many more.

This video is dedicated to the memory of Elizabeth Johnson who we lost a few days after the shoot.

Shot on Arri Alexa on sxs cards.

RIP Elizabeth Johnson

This is actually one of my favorite videos to date.  The artist makes some pretty amazing music and I hope she works with me in the near future as well.  Shooting this was rough.  My wife went into labor while we were on our way to set.  Obviously I couldn’t abandon the production, but I had to move quickly. 

For the obvious reasons the shoot holds a special place in my heart.  Thank you EVERYONE that spend their time working on this.  I’m truly grateful, and happy to share this special project with you.

Drake - 5 AM in Toronto (Explicit) New from Ashley Smith Films on Vimeo.

I’m a huge Drake Fan. I think he is lyrically one of the greatest musicians of this era. With that said… He dropped an aggressive track recently and I HAD to put some visuals to it. I couldn’t let the opportunity pass me.
