- LOS ANGELES
Director David Gray has joined bicoastal production company Supply&Demand for commercial representation in the U.S. Gray combines exceptional attention to casting, performance, and dialogue to create a distinct sense of humor and emotion. His creative work has been recognized by The One Show, Cannes, The Andy Awards, ADC, the Clios, and the British Design and Art Direction Awards, as well as earning him a nomination in 2007 for the DGA Award in commercials. The DGA nod--garnered on the strength of two Tribeca Film Festival promos out of Ogilvy & Mather, NY, a Fulltiltpoker spot for WongDoody, L.A., and an eBay ad via London agency Delaney Lund Knox Warren-- came two years after Gray earned inclusion in SHOOT’s New Directors Showcase.
Gray’s expertise across film, television, and commercials is a natural fit for Supply&Demand. He’s already wrapped his first project with the company--an integrated campaign for BJ’s Wholesale Club. Prior to connecting with Supply & Demand, Gray was repped by Skunk in the U.S.
Tim Case, Supply&Demand co-founder, said, "It’s so great for us to have an A-level comedy guy in the U.S. where we see such great scripts in this genre. We are very excited to partner with David in building that part of the company. I’ve admired his work for a long time.”
Gray related, “I’ve known Tim for years and have always been a big fan of Supply&Demand. I’ve I’m really excited to bring my sensibilities and approach to S&D and the resources they provide. Tim is very supportive in helping me find ways to bring great work to life and make it even better.”
Gray recently finished shooting a pilot for Canal+ in Paris for Le Coeur (The Heart) which is set to release in October.
Gray joins a directorial lineup at Supply&Demand that includes Joseph Kahn, Samuel Bayer, Gabriela Coperthwaite and Mac Premo.
