JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE'S LATEST EDITED AT FINAL CUT

Knight had just three days to create a five-minute music video that would focus primarily on Timberlake's performance. In addition to the tight deadline, Knight had to sift through a large volume of footage.

"The difficulty was trying to turn a 10-minute film into a half-length version that didn't have a pure storyline," he notes. "A small part of the love interest was woven into the video; however, the real spotlight was on Justin Timberlake's performance. It was a real pleasure to work with Sam Bayer again. He shoots a lot of takes and angles, and alternative performance set-ups. The record label approved the cut right away and was really happy with it."

Logan Hefflefinger assisted on the edit. The music video was onlined at Ntropic in LA.
