Jack Penate makes directing debut

13/08/09

Jack Penate has co-directed his first music video.

The clip for the singer's new single Pull My Heart Away was filmed over two days in Petra, Jordan - a location previously used in films such as Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade.

He directed alongside Cherise Payne, who previously filmed the video for Penate's Be The One.

Speaking about the trip Penate said: "The idea for going there came from my schoolboy love for Petra, an ancient city carved into the mountains and one of the seven wonders of the world."

Great adventure

He added: "I travelled there with my girlfriend and two friends, armed only with three Super 8 cameras and lots of film.

"We drove around the country passing the Dead Sea, purple mountains, desert and filming anything we felt was beautiful. It was an incredible adventure."

Jack Penate plays this year's Reading and Leeds festivals and begins a full UK Tour in October.
