Michael Penn’s single ‘Try’ was PTA’s first music video, made during the time he was in post-production on his second feature ‘Boogie Nights’. The video consists of a long uncut take and was shot using crew (featuring some cast) that had recently finished on Boogie Nights with him.

The video has cameo appearances from Philip Seymour Hoffman, Thomas Jane and Melora Walters.
