West Coast Exclusive

GRAYSON WHITEHURST, III is a writer and director living in Brooklyn, NY. His commercial work has broadcast nationally, his branded content has gone viral, and his narrative work has toured Oscar-qualifying festivals around the globe.

The sudden loss of his parents as an adolescent is perhaps the most significant contributor to his cynical worldview, and it’s this worldview that informs both his darkly comedic and dramatic sensibilities as an artist and storyteller. He views film as a method of escape, and he hopes that the temporary departure from reality offered through his work makes you laugh, think, or scream. It’s also worth noting that his favorite annual event is the 48-hour marathon of The Twilight Zone that airs on the SyFy channel.
