LOS ANGELES— 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
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.
