"Today I’m Gonna Get Myself A Real Job": Music Video Directed for Guitarist Cory Wong

September 12, 2019


I'm excited to share ‘Today I’m Gonna Get Myself A Real Job’, a music video I directed for funk guitarist Cory Wong!


Cory Wong says:

“I grew up as an MTV and VH1 kid. I watched music videos for hours on end. Fortunately, I grew up in the golden era of music videos, but never made my own. Normally I get footage of the live tracking sessions; but for this song, we didn’t. So I got to live out my MTV dreams by making a music video for it! The song has a lighthearted approach to an endless struggle as an artist who has self-doubt. It was fun to capture the feeling of the song, but also the magic of living out your calling"
