Shout out to Lil Elijah J for his cameo appearance!

Thank you for everyone who helped out on this project! I’ve never seen so many talented kids in one room!! It was great! Teamwork makes the dream work baby!!!

NEW VIDEO: Lil Elijah J – Do My Thang DIR: Erica D. Hayes

Not too long ago I was contacted about a really talented artist that’s currently on tour with Disney Broadway as Simba by the name of Lil Elijah J. I was really feeling the song and they were really feeling the treatment so I flew out to Philly to shoot Lil Elijah J’s new single “Do My Thang”.

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

“A Glad Awakening” – New short film Directed by Erica D. Hayes

I would like to present to you the first short film directed by Erica D. Hayes. The story behind the production of this independent short film is pretty intense if you ask me but it was really fun.

I am very excited about the release of this production and can’t wait to gain your feedback.

More details about this short will be posted very soon.
