E-mail Print PDF

Rob HeadshotRob Graydon has been an artist his entire life, “My earliest memory is drawing.” This later developed into a true love and passion for movies and filmmaking. Early in his career, for fourteen years, Rob honed his skills at “knowing his audience” by being a stand-up comic. “This gave me the ability to know what works with people and what reactions I can get out of them; It was a priceless working experience.” With these skills: artistry, filmmaking and the ability to read an audience, Rob has now turned his attention to working on music videos, concerts and socially conscious projects.

Rob’s recent documentary, “Satyagraha – 100 Years of Non-violence” chronicled the 100 years between Gandhi’s first use of nonviolent protest (Sept. 11th, 1906) and the fifth anniversary of the World Trade Center attack (Sept. 11th, 2006). It was screened at the Regal Cinema at ground zero on 9/11, “I might be the only filmmaker who can lay that claim.”

Rob has worked with such people as Lance Bass, Jon Stewart, Ray Romano, Kevin James, Jeff Foxworthy, Jay-Z, Denis Leary, Andrew “Dice” Clay, Rob Zombie, Willa Ford, The Black Crowes, The Go-Go’s, Duran Duran, Ryan Adams, Amber, Donovan, Paul Shaffer, Arun Gandhi, George Houser, Bishop Desmond Tutu and many others.
