Jason Goldwatch (born September 1, 1976) is an American music video director and commercial director who is a Co-Founder and Executive Creative Director of Decon, a creative agency and record label based in New York. He is best known for his work with Kid Cudi, Pharrell Williams, Linkin Park, Evidence, Action Bronson, and Dilated Peoples. Goldwatch has also partnered with The Alchemist for the experimental performance art group Media Muerte.[1]

Background[edit]

Goldwatch was born in San Francisco, where he attended San Francisco School of the Arts before going to Cal Arts. He worked at several production companies (including Satellite Films, where he was recruited by Spike Jonze) before touring with Dilated Peoples as their videographer.[2] In 2000, he partnered with Peter Bittenbender on One Big Trip, which led to their founding of Decon in 2002.[3] One of the most recognizable aspects about the music videos by Goldwatch is that he credits himself at the beginning of each video. He has said it was a decision he made early on to help establish his personal brand and also because people were already misspelling his name. [4]
