This music video was a one day shoot. It was actually a blast to shoot, basically it was just a party at a house, so everyone on set had a great time. We wanted the video to match the song, and the song really has that energy of everyone having a good time. The artist Caleb is shockingly young, he is only 19 years old and was just about to start school in NY. It’s incredible that he could produce such a high quality song at such a young age and it’s exciting to see where he will take it in the future.
We love Salt Lake City, it was an easy choice to branch out to become a Salt Lake City Music Video Company. There are a good amount of utah video companies for good reason. This is mostly due to the Sundance Film Festival. With so much happening in the film communities out there it’s only natural for there to be a lot of video production in Salt Lake City. If you have never been to the film festival put it on your bucket list, one of the most exciting thing you can take part in. To find out more about the festival be sure to check out their website at the link.
Another reason we are choosing to become a Salt Lake City Music Video Producer
Is becuase a lot of huge artists call the city there home. Big bands like the killers, imagine dragons, panic at the disco, the used and many others all reside there. Besides being a Salt Lake City Music Video Company I could definitely see myself living there at some point. If you are looking for a Salt Lake City Music Video Producer, be sure to give us a call, we can help design a package that fits your needs and feel free to check out all our work at, Salt Lake City Music Video Producer
This was the second music video we shot with Nisha, we had shot a music video with her a year before called Riot. The first music was extremely flashy and raw while this one has a more sophisticated sexy feel to it. Shooting in black and white is always incredible because the quality of the image is so perfect. It is extremely hard to mess up a shot, captured in black in white. Nisha Kataria is a world famous artist, she is best known to being Michael Jackson’s protege. In a chance encounter she was walking through a fair one day and a man overheard her singing and was impressed so he got her contact information. That next week she was sitting in Neverland with the King of Pop himself Michael Jackson. Michael Jackson was so impressed he asked her to move in and to help build her career but unfortunately soon after Michael Jackson had passed. Nisha’ voice is absolutely incredible a good amount of artists don’t sound anything like their recorded music. Most music is overproduced to make up for a lack of singing ability. Nisha’s voice is absolutely perfect live, I couldn’t notice one difference. One thing nice about being a Phoenix Music Video Director in this case was Nisha is local to Arizona.
Filming in Arizona is great six months out of the year, the other six months being a Phoenix Music Video Director raises some questions. The majority of my business is out of state but for some reason artists always seems to get an itch to make a music video in Arizona during the hottest months.
I started out as a Arizona Music Video Producer. My first 4 music videos I filmed were all in Arizona. Starting out as independent music video director in Arizona had it’s advantages starting with there not being a whole lot of up and coming music video directors
Located in the state. Another advantage of being a Phoenix Music Video Director was that we were so close to so many big cities. Being only six hours from Vegas or California it allowed me to quickly expand over to other states where I have found the majority of my success.

I really love how the performance shots came out in this music video. It’s amazing how many different types of shots you can get with a black piece of paper, some gels and a fog machine. If I was to re-do this video I would probably do less locations. What I’ve been realizing lately about music videos is you need consistency, with the coloring and lighting. Generally different lighting schemes present the viewer with different feelings, especially when you are jumping from day to night, from reel life to studio shots or from interior to exterior shots. I think that’s why the Tony Reid music video came out so good. The whole video was shot during the day and 90% outdoors. I’ve talked about this before in other articles I think this is a product of trying to do to much, not that any of the shots are bad they just have a different look and it makes the cuts harder on the eye of the viewer. When the cut is hard on eye, the viewer is taking out of the experience and consciously know they are watching a music video now. Overall I’m proud of this video but I know I could do better if I had a chance.
The next city we are expanding is Atlanta, Georgia. We are opening up a Atlanta Music Video Company there becuase there is not a lot of qualified hip hop music video directors in Atlanta. Atalanta has producer some of the biggest rappers the industry has to offer, such names at T.I, Jermaine Depri, Gucci Maine and Lil Yachty. We are one of the many companies that make music videos but we don’t think any keeps up with quality that matches our pricing.
There have been some incredible videos that have came out Atlanta.
‘This is another reason why we decided to become a Atlanta Music Video Company. We want to give every city access to great music video production, most artists have to travel out to New York or LA to make that happen and usually that’s way out of their budget. This allows us to grow as directors as well because every city as a major influence in a different way on music and it shows up in the videos.

This music video was one of the easiest projects I have ever had. Tony Reid called me with a concept in mind for the music video, his only concern was that he thought the concept might be too simple. I encouraged him that it was perfect and that too many artist’s try to do way too much in a music video. You have to consider you only have 3 to 4 minutes to tell a story and you are telling that story without dialogue. A lot of artist’s want to make a music video that tells their life story or multiple events that they have had occur or witnessed in life. I tell my artists that it’s better to keep the project simple in concept but to do it very well. I think a lot of artists approach their videos like this is there only shot to make and they would be a lot more successful if they approached it as this was just one of the many great music videos they will make. We shot the video in one day, looking back at it, I might have considered extending it to two days if I could re-do it. Tony hired a couple local parkour athletes and that’s where I would of liked to spend more time filming.
We have realized their are great musicians all over the world and all over the country so each month we are expanding our country to a major city. There is a huge need for music video production in Nashville. So many great country singers and rock bands come out of the state that it was on top of our list to start video production companies in Nashville.
Our next music video is actually going to be filmed in Nashville. A client out of New Jersey had contacted us wanting to film a music video and they concept was going to bring us to film in Nashville. Her concern was she couldn’t fine any well established Nashville Music Video Director’s. We are literally looking to expand across the whole world and give people access to high quality music video across the world. We want to keep our prices extremely competitive so travel costs are no concerns to the muscians. Currently as we expand to being a Nashville Music Video Director, we don’t charge any travel costs as long as you are located in the united states.

The Diamond Underground will always have a special place in our hearts over here at Gordon Cowie Films. They were only the second music group to book a music video with our company and that was over three years ago. Since that video they have trusted us with three other videos.
I could never really compare the diamond underground to other artists, his sound was so much different then anything I had ever heard. If I had to choose one group I think he is most similar to I would say it would be the band bleachers, especially their song wake me. Even though bleachers is more 80’s pop rejuvenated this is as close as I can get.
