About Our Clan

“ALONE, PRODUCTION CAN FEEL LIKE A WAR, BUT TOGETHER
WE WILL BREAK IT DOWN & CONQUER EVERY BATTLE.”

GRADY JUSTICE

OWNER & OPERATOR
“YOU’RE NOT EXPECTED TO KNOW EVERYTHING,
BUT YOU ARE EXPECTED TO KNOW WHO TO GO TO FOR EVERYTHING”.

Grady is an ardent proponent of education through experience. He is a writer, producer, and director with a marketing and design background. He began his career in New England as a SAG/AFTRA actor and gained over 15 years of on set experience and training. He followed his curiosity and affinity for film to Los Angeles and immersed himself in every filmmaking position from intern, P.A. to director, and producer. Grady doesn’t create to make a living but lives to create in hopes that it will all come full circle.

“My ultimate goal for B.F.A. Films is to collaborate with other Artists, Film Makers, Writers, Producers, and Dreamers with the intention of creating anything our minds can conjure up from Short Films, Web Series, Music Videos, Commercials, to Feature films. I want it to be a hub for creativity and ingenuity with an uplifting atmosphere.”

SEAN O’DAY

PRODUCER | PARTNER

CORY CARROLL

PRODUCER | DIRECTOR

Born and raised in the bitter cold state of Alaska, Cory learned to be self-reliant and “make-do” with materials at hand, thus leading him to produce and direct films with what he had instead of what he wanted. With a Sink or swim mentality, Cory dives head first into every idea and project. This approach to life has brought a trove of adventures from being a scuba instructor in the Caribbean, producing and directing films in the frigid remote wilderness of Alaska, to traveling the world and reflecting this inspiration in his work as a master floral designer. Cory enjoys the collaboration and camaraderie inherent to film making and strives to produce films that excite, inspire and push boundaries.

MEGHAN HUGHES

Not long after moving from Philly to LA to combine her love of writing with her love of film, Meg joined the ranks of indie production company Good Deed Entertainment, where she now serves as Creative Executive and Writer, having recently penned the screenplay adaptation of Jane Green’s best-selling novel, The Beach House. A chameleon when it comes to genre, Meg loves developing or writing any story with legs to it, whether it be romantic comedy, grounded sci-fi, supernatural horror, or anything in between.
