Lloyd Aur Norman

SAE Institute Nashville Music Business Program faculty member Lloyd Aur Norman directed the lyric video for Florida Georgia Line‘s single, “Dirt.” The clip has garnered nearly 1 million YouTube views.

“The video was created with an amazing crew during a three day span in Nashville and Copper Canyon Ranch in Hopkinsville, KY,” says Norman, who is a winner of five design Addy awards from the American Advertising Federation. “I love making music videos because they combine all my interests – audio, video, and design. My focus is on becoming the best music video director that I can be.”
