Trash Humpers Feature film, written and directed by Harmony
Both Dave Cloud and Gospel of Power guitarist Paul Booker make appearances in Harmony Korine's polarizing portrait of a group of elderly, Nashville degenerates. Cinema Scope calls the film a "slice of Southern-gothic science fiction."
A Difficult Days Afternoon Documentary, directed by Michael Carter, 2008
Documentary of Dave
Cloud & The Gospel of Power's 2006
European tour, during which
the group played a dozen shows in the UK and Norway. Directed by Nashvillian
Michael Carter, the film chronicles the day-to-day lives of Cloud and
band members Matt Bach, Matt Swanson and Ben Martin, from gritty London
to picturesque Bergen. Includes concert footage from several shows.
In May 2008 the film had its world premiere at Bergenfest

Budweiser "True Dedication" TV ad campaign; concept by Fallon, directed
by Harmony Korine, 2008
Anheuser-Busch's spring 2008 "True Dedication" ad
campaign for Budweiser beer featured Dave Cloud as a mentor for an unnamed
band of Nashville musicians. Created
by ad agency Fallon for
the UK market, the campaign included several TV spots filmed in Nashville
and directed by Harmony Korine (produced by 2AM Films).
The ads show the band playing the 1969 tune "Popcorn"
and Salt-n-Pepa's "Push
It," and jamming free-style at Springwater (Cloud's
hometown hangout). The band members include Lucas Leigh, John Sharp,
Rob Cureton, Brian Kotzur, Sami Elamri and William Tyler (who contributed
guitar work on Cloud's album Pleasure
The Golden Egg Short film, directed by Michael Carter, 2006
In his first proper acting part, Dave
Cloud is the quintessential "bad
role model" for his young boy in this satirical examination
of masculinity and gender roles in the American family. Chris Crofton
plays the unfortunate son as an adult—now married and with a child
of his own.
Written by Seth Pomeroy and Shane Kennedy, the
film was made in
Nashville, Tennessee, by Hot Heat Productions. The film won several
awards in Nashville's 48
Hour Film Project in 2006: First Runner
Up, Best Family, Honorable Mention—Director, Best Screenplay,
and Best Actor (for Chris Crofton).
Bobby Bare: "Are You Sincere" Music video, directed by Roger
Music video for country music outlaw Bobby
Bare's song "Are
You Sincere" from his 2005 album The Moon Was Blue.
Cloud is one of the "dancers" featured throughout
the video. Filmed in Nashville, Tennessee.
Travel Sick (episode 101) TV program, directed by Duncan Wilson
and hosted by Grub Smith, 2001
Television program originally broadcast
on the Bravo channel
(UK) and Comedy
Central (US). In the program's first episode "Tennessee:
Cut a Single at Sun Studios," Cloud is recruited for
an ad hoc band to record a song at the Memphis studio
made famous by Elvis Presley. Cloud's dry wit provides the only
real humor in an otherwise unremarkable show: "I thought I couldn't
do this, but [now] I think this could actually be good."
