Yeah that is a bit much. High draws are tough with long irons. Just getting it to more of a straight flight or slight fade is a big victory.
It appears that you may be cross targeted. I really cant tell with certainty but from the video your feet seem lined up left and your face pointed at the target. That should produce a draw but in your case I think your swinging the club head on the target path with your body aimed left. This may be a reason for your hooks and slices. A over the top move caused by alignment issues. The only difference between the slice and hook is the face angle at contact.
When you write "fade" are you referring to a slice? Again, the video seems to show your alignment is not set up for a fade. Sometimes the simplest solutions may be the best starting point. Address posture, proper alignment (get some alignment sticks), and proper face angle with reference to your target and intended flight. Just my OP :)
I AM NOT AN INSTRUCTOR...OBVIOUSLY. Just did this video for Jakester to help a sconie brother out and to show him how awesome Analyzr is. Please let Jakester know what is best to solve his head moving up and back off the ball. I could be way off on this.

I'm up for trying anything new that will help. I just want to know if I'm setting up to bent over to start. If it looks good ill work on feeling like I'm going forward and down. I just didn't want to start off with a wrong setup position and fight with that going forward.
I do think you are just a bit too bent over. Hopefully others will comment, but I think you should stand up just a bit at address, closer to how you would be at impact.
