BROCK CRAVY: At The Contested Edge
At the age of 17, I got my first "big break" as a production assistant on a straight-to-video action flick starring Mickey Rourke. From there, I cut my teeth assisting on Emmy Award-Winning Shows like American Idol, The Amazing Race, and with the original fab five on Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.
At 25 years old, I was an integral part of the broadcast of the Q-Television Network (QTN), the world's first LGBTQ+ cable network. I produced On-Q-Live, an internationally syndicated variety show that featured queer-focused news, entertainment, and sports. With that, I helped create content for the first openly trans sports reporter in the United States. I consider my experience at QTN as one of my most significant accomplishments. We made broadcast history, and I think that's pretty cool.
After the repeal of DOMA and during the time of the "gay debate," I committed myself to non-profit work, social justice, and higher education. I served as a video producer for Soulforce, a non-violent direct action organization. I produced for ACPA - College Student Educators International in Washington, DC, and the O4U Strategic Initiatives team, helping connect high achieving, LGBTQ students with leading corporations.
Presently, I have returned to further my true passion for storytelling. Wanting to focus on LGBTQ+ characters and storylines, I am again committed to doing so in uncharted genres like horror, science fiction, and fantasy. I've begun with the award-winning short film Innocent Boy, a quasi-dystopian, queer neon western horror, that features fresh new characters and disgusting practical effects.
