ECHOMECH Creative is the name given to all things creative by Clay Hardwick.

Simply, Clay shoots and edits video, but ultimately indulges in the creative practices within art and storytelling. Whether it is directing music videos for regional bands, editing documentaries for television, or setting up video installations for an art’s festival, he will attempt to master any outlet of this medium.






Shooting images has always captured my full attention. Once consumed by still photography in my early teens, I can’t get enough of capturing light and telling stories. Film and video have opened the door for me to tell stories and paint portraits.

The following videos are examples of my ability to shoot digital video and light.

I have over eight years of video editing experience in a number of platforms. I have enjoyed piecing together numerous short films, commercials, and short documentaries. I have a passion for telling stories and a bright admiration for color.

I work primarily on Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro 7, but have experience with Avids, After Effects, and Motion. I also have a solid knowledge of complimentary programs, such as Photoshop, Illustrator, and Compressor to enhance my opportunities in the edit bay.

The following videos are examples of projects in which I was the video editor. These are commercial or professional projects, for more (creative) examples, visit the music videos page. I am available for freelance work. Please view my RESUME and contact me for my hourly and daily rates.
