Director Biography - Gregory W. Kemmis

Gregory W. Kemmis, has been a Snohomish and King County visitor for most of his residency in the State of Washington.

He sometimes has traveled to Seattle, Marysville, Lynnwood, Bellevue, Everett, Monroe, Lake Stevens and other cities within both Snohomish County and King County via Sound Transit or Community Transit public transportation. Sometimes wondering when he will make a difference to another group of individuals, or whom might hear his music enough to play a few songs on the radio.

But long before this encouraging question, Kemmis has become an extraordinary piece or artwork, or unseen talent as many have yet to realize.

He remains a self-acclaimed songwriter for nearly 20 years, blending a-Capella vocals and intuitive expressions for telling a story within not only his music; he coherently blends strong lyrics into lengthy songs to make his hits stand apart from the rest, and leave the music fans judge the songs for what they are worth.

Kemmis has grown up with a diverse blend of 1980s, 1990s, 2000s & early 2010s genre styles: R&B, Pop/Rock, Adult Contemporary, Singer/Songwriter, Modern Country, World, Christian/Rock, and Throwback Jams. He remains committed to the Adult Contemporary genre, combining the Pop/Rock and R&B/Soul styles, as it is growing overlooked.

Some of the core values that Kemmis believes while writing his music is to record on-the-spot, and do not look back for a time, as he has a keen sense of lyrics. He also believes in engaging with his fans or members more than he believes in some of his music.

Secondarily, Kemmis has taken a part of becoming an engaging filmmaker and deliver messages to the public, while recognizing the needs and experiences of developing teenagers and young adults. While the books, films and/or series he creates from scratch are aimed towards college students and graduating high school students as his target audiences, he purposefully attempts to introduce and integrate subjects of social and critical relevance. He believes in the power of education and intelligence as a core element towards development, perspective, perseverance and overall progression.

Kemmis has developed quotations along his journey, and expresses himself as a visionary, but he mostly contributes as a creator towards informational and educational media.

Publicly expressing his genuine interest to reside in Canada, while exploring different avenues of what his ideal profession could be, he remains zealous and driven not by results, but motivated by whats seems logical and morally sensible regarding any type of works he has or continues to create.

Sometimes it is challenging for him to accept what is not logical, and has been known to be a rebel against general disputes or decisions which are deemed to be standardized and systemically accepted, but Kemmis retains a moralistic intuition and a personal record of being exemplary; he hopes to contribute to expansive ranges of audiences, while putting a part of himself within like-minded individuals.

Director Statement

As an advocate for artists, and fair television media, this project is not only dedicated on my behalf, but is more-so dedicated to impacting the lives of other people who use television, music and arts for learning.

Whom seek film as truth and understanding, and whom have not yet had the resources or understanding of what Television (Closed Captioning, and/or the TV Parental Guidelines) has to offer them because of advertising and the digital age.

The most significant lesson he want to teach to his audiences:
“Our experiences in life leave us frustrated and devastated;
“However, our goal is to never become saturated or jaded.
“Normalcy and popularity is overrated; exceptional is the only trait tolerated
“No one needs anything official or titles to stay educated.”
