Not everyone can see the artistry in heavy metal music. I remember how my parents would cringe when I listened to Metallica as a kid growing up in Iowa.

Gregory Graham has won a prestigious Award of Merit at the 2014 IndieFEST Film Awards for his Heavy Metal Greg show. As host of the show, Graham integrates a compilation of interview clips with famous musicians with his laid-back charm and funny comments. And with the Emmy award winning Dan Feliz serving as director of photography, Heavy Metal Greg is also visually pleasing. It therefore comes as no surprise to learn that this is Graham’s 2nd festival win. Heavy Metal Greg also received a best show award at the 2014 Accolade Awards Competition.
Rick Prickett, who chairs The IndieFEST Film Awards says “that it is not an easy festival to win. We receive entries from around the world, some of which are backed by powerful film companies.” A brief look at some of the former IndieFest Film awardees serves to back his claim as past award winners include entertainment heavy-weights such as Liam Neeson, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Tom Hall.
Graham is henceforth thrilled to join the ranks of this prestigious crew. “I’m also happy that the highly qualified judges who work in the film and television industry were able to find merit in a show about heavy metal,” says Graham. “Not everyone can see the artistry in heavy metal music. I remember how my parents would cringe when I listened to Metallica as a kid growing up in Iowa. Today I sometimes hear bands play songs that I do not necessarily understand. But that’s the beauty of music. It is ever changing, and not everyone is going to get it.”
