After hearing about the story behind Grado Labs, filmmakers Rocky Owens (Director) and Ben Hallman (DP/Editor) asked if they could visit to see what we do. A few weeks after their visit, they reached back out to see if they could film a pair of shorts surrounding our family and Grado.
The first short film focuses on Jonathan Grado, John Grado’s son, and what it was like to literally grow up in Grado Labs, while being surrounded by decades of audio history. Jonathan speaks on the Grado Labs staff being like family, the three generations of craftsmanship and how joining Grado became a catalyst for change within the company.
We appreciate Summer Love Films wanting to film this story on us, and we’re looking forward to the second companion piece.
