Gay pop-artist Matthew Connor today premieres, exclusively through Out, the music video for his newest single "How is July Already Over?" Focusing on the rise and fall of a promising relationship, the song follows Connor's character as he tears himself apart by remembering all the places where he and his ex-lover (portrayed by Hunter Canning) fell in love. Shot in black and white stop motion and directed by photographer Marc McAndrews, 4,000 frames (out of a total 21,000 taken during production) appear in the final cut of the video and create a vintage effect, helping to emphasize the song's nature of longing for days past.
