DARK ENERGY SIGNS GRAY HUGHES
7 July 2022

Dark Energy are proud to announce their signing of director and photographer, Gray Hughes to their commercials roster.

Gray comes to Dark Energy with a considerable amount of experience. Over the years he has built up a large body of work across multiple genres and with the visual strength you would expect from a renowned photographer.

Hughes's films have earned several festival appearances and awards. He recently undertook the extremely well received Sky documentary, 'Big Boys Don't Cry.' , which raised awareness of male mental health, a subject that Gray is passionate about.


Gray's experience and archive of work is incredible but we were equally impressed with his passion and commitment

 ”

Keen and ready to get started, Gray says: "I’m extremely excited about this new chapter with Dark Energy films and look forward to us working together."

Dark Energy Founder/MD, Matt Brown is equally excited by the new partnership and the possibilities it brings: "Gray’s experience and archive of work is incredible but we were equally impressed with his passion and commitment. He’s a great addition to the roster and we look forward to working with him."


Gray's short film, 'Lycra Dad' hilariously pokes fun at the MAMIL (Middle Aged Man In Lycra) phenomenon and the ridiculously competitive sports day parents. It's tongue-in-cheek work that brilliantly shows off Gray's sense of humour and flair for directing.

You can watch Gray’s reel and then contact annaallgrove@darkenergyfilms.com for New Business enquiries.
