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:

“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. Directing this project really opened my eyes to working on all types of productions, not just music videos and commercials. It was shot last year at a $1.3 million estate in Bloomfield Hills. 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.

“A young, rich and successful wife of a famous politician has bipolar symptoms that quickly sparrow her life out of control into a drug ridden depression that causes intense tension within their marriage.”
