Too Short In Oakland

This video is super dope. Its been a minute since I’ve seen someone get behind the camera for cinematography on this type of level. Jason Goldwatch links up with Too $hort to capture the Bay. Hit that play button. And look under the video for more “Time Pieces”.

Too Short is like the mayor of Oakland. I wanted to create something that really felt like the Bay, and not in the stereotypical pimp shit kinda way. Short volunteers at a youth center in East Oakland called Youth Uprising. I headed over to his crib around noon and we went and bought a boom box, and did it for the kids at Youth Uprising, playing tracks off an iPod mini. He’s a true OG and a sentient being of wonderful pimp light.
