Ben Everard began his career as an attorney at Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, one of the most respected law firms in the United States. After three years at the firm, in which Everard litigated a variety of entertainment-related disputes, he co-founded a production company which produced the Discovery Channel television show HANG-MEN in 2014.
Later that year, Everard teamed with Lawrence Grey in the capitalization of Grey Matter Productions. Grey Matter then produced one of 2016’s biggest commercial successes, LIGHTS OUT. The company has projects set up at multiple studios, and are developing projects with A-list talent, including Tobey Maguire, Steven Soderbergh, and James Wan among others.
Everard is presently Grey Matter’s C.O.O., and also serves on many entertainment-related Boards. Currently, Everard serves on the Board of Directors for FilmL.A., Inc., the entity tasked with processing and approving all permitting applications in the greater Los Angeles area.
