A desire to create personal work brought Graydon to Columbia University’s MFA Film Program in New York. Shortly after leaving the program, Graydon co-wrote, directed, and starred in the viral phenomenon “Shit Girls Say,” which inspired thousands of spin-offs and created a discourse about the representation and stereotyping of gender, sexuality, race, and culture around the world.
The success of these videos took Graydon to Los Angeles, where he continued to direct commercials and short films while writing for studios and producers such as 20th Century Fox, Ryan Murphy, and Sofia Vergara. Graydon’s work has been exhibited and screened in festivals, galleries, and museums including the Toronto International Film Festival, The Museum of the Moving Image in New York, and The Victoria & Albert Museum in London. He also co-created, co-wrote, and directed “Coming In” a 10-episode web series for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
Since returning to Canada, Graydon has been focusing on his ultimate goal of writing and directing his first feature film, Muya, which is a culmination of his particular blend of comedy, drama, storytelling, and visual style.
