NEW VIDEO: Carl Petty – Long as Afternoon Shadows DIR: Erica D Hayes

This was one of those projects that made me remember why I direct music videos… I not only had a ton of fun and worked with a GREAT team of people, but we were allowed to be creative, innovative and experimental. I completely respect Carl Petty for choosing to do “Long As Afternoon Shadows” as his first music video because of the deeper meaning within the song and the fact that it’s dedicated to his late aunt. I believe we have all lost someone sooner than we wanted to (if we ever wanted to…)

Anyway check it out:

Artist: Carl Petty
Title: Long As Afternoon Shadows
Director: Erica D. Hayes
Director of Photography: Jeremy Brockman
Producer: Tanya Zora
