CAUGHT INSIDE

Dir: Gary Zelasko

Christian Drama

10 minutes


1 Samuel 8:22, and the LORD replied, Do as they say, and give them a king. Then Samuel agreed and sent the people home. The context of 1 Samuel 8 is that the people ask the Lord to give them a king, so they can be like the other nations. Through his prophet, He tells them that He is their king, but they again ask for an earthly king, which is not God's best for them. However, He grants their request and gives them the earthly king they seek, but it would have been better for them to have opted for God's plan, rather than their own.

DON'T BE JUDGIN' ME

Dir: Daniel Espeut

The music video for Playground Hero's debut single, Don't Be Judgin' Me, was filmed on Washington Street in Athens, Georgia. The video is an uninterrupted long take featuring Lead Vocalist, Estebon Watson, singing as he dances down the sidewalk. The video portrays Estebon in a drunken state telling the story of what happened to him that day, which led him to drinking at a bar. The video was directed and produced by Daniel Espeut, who also appears in the beginning sitting next to Estebon and fellow band members Davon Watson, Ian Rowland and Jonathan Morningstar. To emphasize Estebons' manic state of mind, Mr. Espeut uses the art of quick-change to reappear as four separate characters.
