Two teen runaways escape their troubled childhood in Tim Mattia's video for Sam Hunt's Young Once. 

Traversing derelict backroads and expansive stretches of countryside, the pair fight to survive each day whilst making the most of their newfound freedom. 

DoP Justyn Moro utilises natural daylight and handheld camerawork to give the project an authentic feel. Getting up close in the action, the camera matches the frenetic, spontaneous movements of the couple, to give a sense of both adventure and fear of the unknown. 

A blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameo from Sam Hunt in the café scene is an unintrusive addition, with the focus of the story staying on the teens and the promise of a new life.
