In 2007 McCasland directed a video for Quiet Company's music video, Fashionable from the album Shine honesty released by Northern Records.[3] It is currently playing on demand at Mtv.ca [4] after making the rounds on the festival circuit. It won best music video honors at the Crossroads Film Festival in Jackson, Mississippi,[5] and Fearless Film Festival in Fort Worth, Texas,[6] as well as taking the Silver Remi at the WorldFest Houston International Film Festival in Houston, Texas.[7]

In 2008 McCasland was nominated for a Regional Emmy in advanced media writing for Trash Day Of The Dead which he wrote and directed for the '"Go Green With Dr. Gangrene" campaign.[8]

McCasland did a series of Go Green shorts,[9] which garnered several national awards, and which received citations from Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen, and the Nashville City Council.[10] McCasland became the first recipient of the Vasaria Public Service Award at the Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards alongside Chiller Cinema.[11][12]

McCasland has directed multiple episodes of Dr. Gangrene's Creature Feature[13] which airs on Nashville's CW affiliate, WNAB.[14] He has worked with Larry Underwood (who portrays Doctor Gangrene), as an actor on the show as well as appearing as himself on the half-hour show Chiller Cinema (the show changed titles when it moved to a two-hour format).
