Hodges Usry is a filmmaker whose interest in film began as an awkward 5th grader, making parodies of the TV show COPS. Local gangster rap videos and commercials soon followed.
In high school, he interned for the camera department on HBO's THE WIRE and while in college, Hodges was the recipient of the Young Arts Award for Cinematic Arts. An award that was given by the legendary Martin Scorsese.
He graduated from The Savannah College of Art and Design with a degree in Film & TV and began directing commercial spots for Chevrolet and Coca-Cola, among other major brands.
In 2013, he received an offer to go on tour with country singer songwriter, Corey Smith for a month. He was taken by the adrenaline of tour life and a one-month commitment quickly turned into two years.
While living in Los Angeles, Hodges had an opportunity to shoot a documentary for Lady Antebellum and once again, this led to a multi-year relationship. He has worked with Lady A as a video creative director for several years and currently resides in Nashville.
His work has been featured on The Today Show, Gizmodo, Popular Mechanics, Digg, GMA, People Magazine, VICE, and The Tonight Show.
