A Common Thread's Jennifer Trujillo Lenses Timbaland's "Know Bout Me."

(December 19, 2013)
DMN Newswire--2013-12-19--
Director Jennifer Trujillo has crafted a creepy concept-driven video for Timbaland's new single Know Bout Me (featuring Drake, James Fauntleroy and Jay-Z). Trujillo, who directs via A Common Thread, used an abandoned Los Angeles hospital for the backdrop of a story of a mysterious young woman's search for a lost book. That book turns out to be a tome marked Property of T. Mosley a.k.a Textbook Timbo, which is also the name of Timbaland's new studio album, his first in four years. 




The woman in the video, whose face is obscured by a cowl-like hood, first appears in a grimy hallway, littered with trash and broken doors. Later she strolls through an eerily vacant chapel, before winding up in a storeroom stuffed with dusty files. Graffiti-like song lyrics are omnipresent and grafted over the live action.

"I love dark, creepy textures," Trujillo says. "I added lots of layers, such as doll heads and old stuffed animals, to give it my own flavor."


Trujillo, who got her start writing treatments for other directors, makes her directorial debut with this lyric video.  "Jennifer is a young filmmaker of obvious talent, whose style of visual storytelling showcases the mood of the music," says J.P. McMahon, Executive Producer, A Common Thread. "This is an impressive debut and we are excited to see where she goes from here."

Trujillo was also assisted by director of photography  Nate Fu and producer  Gabrielle Page.
