Pulitzer Center Grantee Directs Single-Shot Video for Justin Timberlake
Arturo Perez is an award-winning director and a former Pulitzer Center grantee who won "Project: Report," YouTube and Pulitzer Center's 2008 reporting contest for aspiring journalists.
Now, he can add a Justin Timberlake music video to his portfolio.
Justin Timberlake reached out to the Perez's production company, La Blogothèque, and asked to collaborate on his hit single, "Say Something," a duet with Chris Stapleton. But this wasn't going to be just another music video. To raise the stakes, the whole song, instruments, and vocals, were performed live, and it was all filmed in a single shot.
