Kody NewtonKody Newton is a director from Kuna Idaho best known for
his stylish goods looks and well dressed attire on set.
For his second music video, "Out Tonight", Kody wanted to dance
so he wrote a story completely around his being able to dance.
Dancing has always been his passion since
the retro swing movement of the late 90's. Some of the dancing
in the video comes from the dances of N'Sync and the Backstreet Boys
which Kody still knows to this day. The video production
was creative and fun as Kody worked with Red Light Challenge's Sean and Kyle Luster.
