GRADY JUSTICE

FOUNDER | PRESIDENT
“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.”
