Gray comes with a wealth of experience in the film industry and, along with his brother Andrew, runs Gray Brothers Films, a Belleville-based production company.

Quinte Health Care commissioned the Gray brothers to produce a documentary about an incredible story from Belleville General Hospital. The extraordinary tale of how the right people, in the right place, at the right time, with the right equipment saved a young life that WOULD have been lost on month earlier. And it all happened because of donor support!

"9. Fly Colt Fly: Legend of the Barefoot Bandit, directed by Adam and Andrew Gray. Waters says: “Using animation, news footage, and realistic reenactments (you even get to see him wiggle his toes), Fly Colt Fly will make you understand why this plane-stealing kid became a national folk hero.”

SEATTLE — Brothers Adam and Andrew Gray are clearly enamored of their subject in Fly Colt Fly, a doc about the Washington state 17 year-old who managed to evade the FBI and other lawmen for two years while committing a string of brazen thefts. Colton Harris-Moore, also known as the Barefoot Bandit, was daring in ways conducive to myth-making, and the film plays along, offering romantic live-action reenactments and animated scenes whose anime-influenced energy never flags.

The Zodiac Effect

The identity of the Zodiac Killer is one of the greatest true crime mysteries of all time. Unmasking the serial killer who terrorized the Bay area of San Francisco in the late 60s and early 70s has become a life-shaping quest for countless civilian researchers.

Adam and Drew Gray are Canadian filmmakers who have approached documenting the paranormal with a scientific eye and an open mind. Allison from Milwaukee Ghosts first introduced me to their work through a documentary called The Nightmare. 

Inspired by a sleep paralysis incident that affected Adam Grey so deeply that he couldn’t sleep for weeks where he saw a shrouded figure at the foot of the bed (he goes into detail about what actually happened to him during the podcast and I talk about a sleep paralysis incident that I had as well that would later inspire our song, “Hypnogogic”.

The study of dreams and nightmares continues to be a deep well of new discovery. What exactly conjures those scattered moments in the mind to play during sleep? How can the visions seen in these dreams and nightmares effect the sleeper? These questions lining the walls of sleep analysis have been approached scientifically as well as spiritually. The 2008 documentary The Nightmare by Andrew Gray seeks to answer some of these lingering questions.
