ALL THIS LOVE (2020) | Micro Short Film

WRITTEN/DIRECTED BY YA'SHALAN
"As the sun has its place up in the sky..."
ALL THIS LOVE is a micro-short film about two people dancing with gaze. We Are KING's cover of classic 80's love ballad, "All This Love" by DeBarge has been a favorite of mine recently and inspired the production. Fun Fact: We shot the footage separately and one year apart. This song was the glue that put them together.

THAT OLD ALARM (2019) | Music Video

DIRECTED/EDITED BY YA'SHALAN
An ode to 90’s R&B, Amerigo Gazaway and Xiomara’s “1990” album is a nostalgic love letter to an era that redefined the genre. Known for his work reinterpreting classics, Gazaway (most recently tapped by the Miles Davis estate for his work on the lost Rubberband sessions), steps out of his role as a remixer and gives Bay Area artist, Xiomara, the bedrock for her voice to flourish.
