Relocated from Seattle less than a week prior, Rob thought he brought the weather with him! The unusual weather provided a unique atmosphere for the video, and the reduced traffic in downtown LA allowed us to roam freely.
Despite Simms’ newcomer status in LA, he was instantly comfortable and authenticity himself in front of the camera, equally true the essence of the song. “A Walk Downtown” is a testament to the fortuitous marriage of planning and spontaneity in independent filmmaking.
