Grays Matter is a Film company specializing in TV and Media Production
At the helm of Grays Matter is Samantha Gray. She has a wealth of experience in both TV and corporate video campaigns, producing work for an extensive body of clients, both large and small, for multiple exposure platforms.
She is an award winning film-maker, garnering two esteemed awards for her short film “But We Slept”; Best South African Short Film at the Cape Winelands Film Festival 2012 and Best Film at The Films for Change festival as part of the Sustain Our Africa Summit, 2012. She is prestigious PUMA Creative Mobility Award Winner.
Grays Matter’s crew members bring collective years of experience to the table. Our team is professional, friendly, talented and dedicated. Our work ethics are simple: We work honestly and damn hard to produce something not only for the client but something we can be proud of too.
Sam has the ability to turn a system or process into an entertaining and engaging story.
Sam’s productions are fun, meticulous and she delivers on time! Great to do business with her.
Samantha directed and produced several short video stories to explain the services offered by our client's Employee Assistance programme. Her casting and direction helped bring out the emotion of each story without making it too corny or "Sewende Laan". I enjoyed her creativity and energy and would recommend her.
Working with Sam from Grays Matter is like a breath of fresh air. You can expect her to always show up with enthusiasm, energy and a smile as big as her ideas. She immediately grasps what is required and works according to a project plan without missing a milestone. We were kept informed every step of the way and have been delighted with the results. It's a joy to have found Grays Matter and highly recommend their services.
Sam is an absolute delight to work with. She is warm and friendly and at the same time extremely professional. Ensuring that the customer is 100% satisfied with the work that she produces is enormously important to her and so she spends time pre-production ensuring that she fully understands the client’s needs and then post production ensuring that every minute detail is what the client wants. No matter how trying the request, she remains warm and positive. She is certainly one of Learn to Lead’s favourite suppliers.
Samantha Gray and the rest of the Grays Matter team are simply incredible to put it mildly. This highly creative and professional outfit go above and beyond the contract objectives for a particular project and do whatever it takes to meet even the tightest of deadlines. We at Property24 are ecstatic about the outcome of the work we did in partnership with Grays Matter and could not be happier with the response we have received from our clientele as a result of this work. I highly recommend Grays Matter for any job big or small and look forward to working with them for the years to come!
Samantha is meant to direct beautiful films. She has a very natural ability to know exactly how to capture stories on screen and depict them in a way that is real, sincere and powerful. It was a great privilege to witness the way Sam took me through this process of taking what was in my heart and in my head and bringing it to life in its most potent form for film.
Madeleine (13) and I needed some words and pictures/video produced for www.grumblingtummies.com – the online home of Madeleine’s initiative to raise money to provide food parcels to schoolchildren in need. We were introduced to Sam and Grays Matter in early 2014 and spent a few days with her and her team discussing and implementing Madeleine’s ideas. Sam is a most refined, intellectually and emotionally indulgent professional. Her grace, patience and understanding and her ability to embrace, harness and gently steer (where needed) the thinking of a 13 year old made the few hours we spent with her some of the most delightful time we have spent creating Grumblingtummies. The product Sam eventually delivered – from a creative and emotional point of view – was polished and one hundred percent on the mark. We can, unconditionally, recommend working with her and Grays Matter, and we would be happy to share some of our experiences with you.
The service Woolworths received from GraysMatter exceeded my expectations on every level – Samantha pulled the proverbial rabbit out of the hat, especially given what she had to work with at our shoots. She delivered a set of products that we are all extremely proud of. On and off the set, Samantha is a consummate professional who goes the extra 10 miles for her clients. I have recommended GraysMatter to numerous colleagues and have no hesitation in supporting GraysMatter in future.
It is such a pleasure working with Grays Matter. Sam becomes like one of my project team members that delivers to the brief every time. Her drive, creativity and enthusiasm inspires and brings to life what we couldn’t even have imagined. Quality work every step of the process.
Sam is a client's dream film director: insanely talented, multi-skilled, very experienced and able to deliver beyond expectation, on time AND in budget. Repeatedly. From story-boarding, scripting, and casting, right through the madhouse of shooting (which never felt like that with her calm and super competent demeanour) to post-production Sam was hands on practical, willing and flexible. I was fascinated at how expertly she read and responded to each new and dynamic context on and off the shoot - effortlessly slipping from warm and unrushed, non-judgemental encouragement for an actor before yet another take, to her firm directorial voice that so ran the show. But wait, there's more: Sam has a high professionalism and integrity, and she's someone who absolutely loves what she does. That's why I'm hunting about for opportunity to work with her again.
