Timmy Trumpet's 'Diamonds' Music Video Hits The Big Screen In Hollywood

Today we’re excited to share the news that Timmy Trumpet’s "Diamonds" music video, the world’s first music video filmed in isolation, is an official selection in this weekend’s critically acclaimed film festival Dances With Films (DWF:LA). An ambitious project on a shoestring budget has made its way from a one-bedroom apartment in Australia to the red carpet in Los Angeles.
Timmy Trumpet was in the middle of a North American tour with Steve Aoki when the pandemic struck. The following day he was one of thousands scrambling for the next plane out of LAX as the world headed into lockdown.
A week later, Timmy livestreamed from his humble apartment in Sydney. Usually accustomed to gigantic festivals like Tomorrowland and EDC, some staging alterations were in order. C02 cannons were replaced by air freshener cans, pyrotechnics with birthday cake sparklers. The set clocked more than 10 million streams online, becoming one of the most viewed performances of the year.
“Timmy opened the set on “Diamonds,” and it was the first time anyone had heard it. Then he said the words “from my home to yours, welcome” and the idea hit me in an instant” says Director, Shaun David Barker.
The music video is an inspirational undertaking of multicultural digital unity. With the help of Timmy’s fans, footage was shot by over 500 contributors in 40 countries via Zoom, Facetime, and DMs. A team of producers worked tirelessly around the clock and the final product took an astonishing 11 days to produce on a $6,000 micro-budget. In a time where isolation and darkness felt overwhelming, the video truly demonstrated the universal power of dance to unite and bring joy to all during the pandemic.
