Sameer Cash - Driveway Moment

Sameer Cash, a Toronto-based singer/songwriter, was raised on Rock & Roll records and Hindu fairy tales garnering inspiration from his parent’s upbringing that reflected onto himself. 

His latest video is for his song Driveway Moment, a tune about “the small glimpses between the big adventures,” says Cash. “They are the moments that I have lived in most of my life. Those are the times where you really grow and learn. When you’re not thinking so much, but merely existing, and feeling the weight of everything in front of you, and all the things you’ve left behind."

The video opens with a screen credit roll, followed with a widening shot of Cash running along a wintery forest trail, wearing what appears to be a prisoner's orange jumpsuit. Switching from fast to slow motion, the video is filled with this one scene of Cash running through the road, feeling as though he is running for so long, but getting nowhere, allowing for the lyrics to speak to the video. At one point, he falls down, only to get back up immediately and continue on his journey.  Until eventually the credits come back and the video fades out.
