Grey is a young Emmy-nominated and award-winning filmmaker from Charleston, South Carolina, who draws upon the past through history and mythology to humanize global issues of the present like the extinction crisis, agriculture, climate change, and the refugee crisis through his production company Lugus Films, LLC. After receiving his Masters of Fine Arts degree from the Savannah College of Art & Design, Grey founded the Lugus Film Collective, a non-profit film production company devoted to bringing together emerging filmmakers to create imaginative narrative and documentary content. Grey is currently developing his first feature documentary film that examines the extinction crisis through scientists’ attempts to restore the rare Franklin Tree, extinct in the wild for over two hundred years, to its natural habitat on the Georgia coast.

Grey is also the Founder of Enduring Curiosity, a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing education for school children, universities, and community extended education groups through non-fiction and narrative film and media content.

As for the video, that was done under the supervision of filmmaker Grey Gowder. “One of my favorite things about working with Grey was how holistic his approach was,” says Raalte. “Before we dove into the details of shooting, we sat around and talked about the band: our history, what the song meant to us, our idiosyncrasies. Even if it didn’t directly make it into the video, all of that influenced his understanding of our vibe and how to make a video that fit us.”
