Principal, SunnyBoy Entertainment
Harold Hayes Jr. grew up traveling the world and attending 15 different schools before graduating from the Grady School of Journalism at the University of Georgia. Creating award winning shorts and building up a resume as a producer, editor, writer and director has been an exciting 15 year journey with his business partner Craig Phillips. After stints working separately in New York and Los Angeles they both finally ended up in the same town and started their own company SunnyBoy Entertainment. Their talents have been enlisted to create content, help brand and expand the story world of studio projects from Pirates of the Caribbean to Monsters vs Aliens to The Book of Eli to Percy Jackson. In this time, they also caught the attention of The Gotham Group and have been represented there ever since. Along with continuing to create content for studios, Harold and Craig began writing for the Emmy-nominated kids anthology show, R.L. Stine's Haunting Hour on the Hub. Along with this the duo has helped with writing and development for the new Hub show, Spooksville. Recently, Harold and Craig teamed up with VR Director Lex Halaby to form SunnyBoyVR, a virtual reality production company. Recent projects produced by SunnyBoy VR are two VR experiences for Warner Bros., The Conjuring 2 which have made over 30 Million impressions world-wide. SunnyBoy VR also created successful VR experiences for Warner Bros., Key & Peele movie Keanu, which is currently at 4.2 million views on Facebook, the most successful Warner Bros.', home video viral release to date. SunnyBoyVR also released with WB and New Line Cinema "Float" a VR experience that debuted at San Diego, CA's Comic-con to rave reviews. SunnyBoy VR currently is working on four other large-scale VR experiences for major motion picture companies.
