Cameron Washington is the founder of Russian Hill Projects. The quickly evolving company is a unique project in itself, specializing in the creation and integration of music, film, and media. In the music world, Washington has worked with Grammy award winning musicians and composers on music that has been listened to by audiences around the globe. The latest collaboration was a hybrid of jazz and rocksteady tunes for reggae legends The Melodians.
The companies’ film projects have been honored with awards from the New York Independent International Film Festival, and the Spaghetti Junction Film Festival. Recent media endeavors include consulting with the lead team on Jehane Noujaim’s Pangea Day, the first ever of its kind global film day broadcast to over 150 countries through television, the web, and mobile phones. Washington is an advisor to the annual Martha’s Vineyard International Film Festival, and has been a juror for the 24 Hour Film Race of New York.
In the comedy world, Washington is the writer and director of the web series Sex Drugs and Jazz, a comedy show about jazz musicians. The first season focuses on a brilliant gypsy jazz guitar player who has to sell marijuana to make a living in New York. The series has been dubbed "very funny...You have to see it to know how funny it really is" by HailMaryJane.com.
Most recently, Washington composed, produced, and performed on the hip hop comedy satire track "Wine Country," an ode to California's Wine Country. The song was hailed as "The Most Bad Ass Version of Wine Country We've Ever Seen," by the Huffington Post, and described as "The rap video that will make your day..It's got everything," by the San Francisco Chronicle.
Washington is currently having competing love affairs with San Francisco and Brooklyn, and is a huge fan of the arts, red wine, nature, and karma.
