the first video i made for tim was one of the most rewarding creative experiences of my career. he is perhaps the most authentic artist i've worked with and collaborating with him is a real joy. tim is a fire fighter with FDNY and spends his days injecting narcan into overdosing junkies, dragging carcasses out of wrecked cars, and axing through walls of burning buildings gagging in toxic smoke. every cent he earns goes into his music and he really just does what he wants. for this project, i flew to new jersey and spent a week cruising bad neighborhoods with tim, looking for inspiration. the budget was around 2 grand, so we had to really build from what we could find for free. it was a similar process to how we made the silverbird video, but with about 1/3 the budget. tim rented me a room in some chinese guy with bad dandruff's apartment in jersey city. we street cast, stole our locations, and just built this completely organically. a sort of stream of conscious video. i'm in love with the cast, the song, and everywhere we shot. this is a freestyle video and it feels very true to me. thank you tim for having me, and i can't wait for the next one!
