In a series of short films, director David Gray--with tongue firmly in cheek--shows various Americans unsuccessfully trying to seek refuge in Canada. This timely topic--with folks looking to move due to problems in the U.S., and some fearing Donald Trump might be elected to the Presidency--takes on a light comedic tone under Gray’s direction. 

Gray turned out these shorts independently (he is repped by production house Skunk for spots and branded content). His credits include spots for such brands as American Express, Geico, Ikea, Microsoft, Showtime, Verizon and Volkswagen.


Production David Gray, director; Brent Bettes, producer; Anthony Rescigno, DP. Editorial Beast Adam Liebowitz, editor.
