Some of you may not know that Cameron’s first directing gig was for a
1982 1983 MTV special about Tom Petty and the Hearbreakers. As Cameron recently tweeted, this was only aired a few times and MTV pulled it because of all the bootleg footage that was featured in the show. The program’s reputation has grown throughout the years, and it’s something that has been passed around by Petty fans via VHS and DVD conversions. Hopefully someday it will officially see the light of the day.
Above is a short clip I found on YouTube where Cameron and Tom are shooting a dart gun, looking through Tom’s box of archives and just hanging out. This footage was filmed at Tom’s house.
