Gregory is a filmmaker with work spanning features, shorts, documentaries, and digital series.
In 2010 he produced and directed the acclaimed, fan-funded documentary Jens Pulver | DRIVEN, about the legendary mixed-martial-arts fighter. The project was one of the earliest Kickstarter success stories, raising $27,210 in just 20 days. He followed that up with Bloodsworth–An Innocent Man, which chronicled the remarkable true story of Kirk Noble Bloodsworth, the 1st death row inmate exonerated by DNA evidence in the United States. In 2014 he co-created (with Christian Lybrook), and directed the pilot for the award winning series Zero Point, which was developed through the IFP Screen Forward Lab, and premiered in the 2015 Tribeca N.O.W. program.
A 2012 Sundance New Frontier Storytelling Fellow, and 2015 IFP Screen Forward Lab fellow, Bayne has been a guest speaker discussing the evolving landscape of film, media, crowdfunding, and digital distribution at Columbia University, the Los Angeles Film Festival, Lone Star Film Festival, and London Film School, and has written for Filmmaker Magazine, WorkbookProject.com, and NoFilmShool.com.
Currently, Bayne is managing the release of his debut feature as a writer/director, 6 Dynamic Laws for Success (in Life, Love & Money), which the Hollywood Reporter called “A fresh, enjoyable, stylish, neo-noir,” and developing numerous projects including his new film, Kill Thy Neighbor.
