About
Grey Matter Studios

Grey Matter Studios began as a shared passion for entertainment under the name Garage 47. In 2017, three college students wrote a short film by the name of Citizen Lame that spurred a half decade partnership which resulted in the production of 17 short films, multiple webseries, a game show and a continued love for video production.

Together, Grey Matter Studios strives to provide an alternative to the mundane short film atmosphere that persists in modern video content production.
