Tim Nihan "How Far" Music Video

Downlow's relationship with Tim Nihan  started back in the Summer of 2014 at Mind Spray. We filmed his first performance back after taking a couple years off from making music (you can find that video here).  He slayed this performance and won the open mic and has been a voice in the Boston Hip-Hop scene since. We've been working with Tim since we met him the night of Mind Spray and have grown past just a business relationship. That make me all the happier to present to you the music video we produced for his song called "How Far". 

Tim Nihan "How Far"

We have been covering Tim at the studio for the past few months and after playing us his new EP "Prayers" (which he just released. You can find that here), we starting discussion ideas for the video. After a test shoot in another location at night  we decided to try somewhere more open and during the day. We came across the ****** ******* and it just fit to well. Our first shoot date at the new location was a quick decision after catching lunch at a diner down the street (Downlow and Tim have this whole diner thing going on. Stayed tuned on that). We did three quick takes to explore movements and see how it felt with the song.

We came back a week later during the ever beautiful golden hour and filmed a couple more takes. I had just come from snowboarding at Wachusett Mountain and still had my snow pants on. The temperature warmed up and I ended up ditching my jackets and rolling up my snow pants. Probably one of the weirdest outfits I've worn while filming. Non the less we're very excited about this video and hope you enjoy it as well. There's a couple press photos we shot during the video as well below. Be sure to follow Tim Nihan and look out for anything he does around the city, he's an act not to miss.
