ABOUT STEPHEN GREY

Stephen Grey Is a filmmaker by day and a social advocate by night. Born with Autism (Asperger’s Syndrome), he grew up with a divergent experience from his White American background and came to see how influential identity and perception could be. He then set out to Hollywood to partner with the outsiders of society like him by making films to tell their stories and support them through advocacy. Stephen’s filmmaking themes focus on stories of people that society thought were bad but were good and are heavily defined by Race Relations, Autism, Identity, Culture and Morality. He has produced films that cover the cultural spectrum and worked with filmmakers from all backgrounds. Stephen deeply loves America and believes its people have done incredible things… and that there’s much more good to come. His advocacy has been his great passion. 

He’s a member of the American Association for Access, Equity and Diversity, The Alliance for Media Arts and Culture, The Color of Change and ran dinners for Herb Wesson’s EmbraceLA which brought together Angelenos to talk about race and identity. This focus on identity and perception culminated in the founding of Positive Identity, which seeks to spread inspiring media to show people of all races in a positive light, doing good things for each other and for America. Positive perception creates positive action and Positive Identity does just that. 

Growing up he saw how when people read positive media about people with Autism that it changed how they saw him, and how he saw himself. This foundation spurred the focus on identity, race and perception and laid the foundation for Positive Identity where he aims to do good for all of society. He hopes that one day he will be a filmmaker advocate by day, and by night
