Based in New York City, Greg works globally. He is known as a “problem solver,” bringing his expertise to projects that many thought too confounding to execute. Ramsey says, “Every project is a challenge and brings with it the fun of figuring out how to actually do it and make it look utterly fantastic while communicating the message and shooting it within the parameters of the budget.”
Ramsey has directed using every medium available- film, state of the art digital capture, CG and stop motion. He considers post production to be just as important as the shoot, and he loves to follow a project through completion.
He has directed thousands of commercials, and a broad range of media for the internet. “I love working on new media platforms, I’ve shot jobs for all sorts of social media, even a commercial for tv’s on gas station pumps” says Ramsey. Commercial clients include: AT&T, Boar’s Head, Boston Market, Burger King, Campbell’s Soup Company, Canon, Carrabba’s, Carvel, Chase, Churchs’ Chicken, Clorox, Coca Cola, Colgate, Crown Royal, Dunkin’ Donuts, Electrolux, Estee Lauder, Fat Tire Beer, General Mills, Gillette, Hershey’s, Hidden Valley Ranch, IHOP, Jack in the Box, KFC, Kelloggs, Kraft, Martha Stewart, Maybelline, McDonalds, Miller Brewing, Mobil, Nestle, Olay, Pepsi, Phillips, Pizza Hut, Proctor & Gamble, Reckett, Rolling Rock, Taco Bell, Taylor Made, Unilever, Village Inn, Wendy’s, Zip Loc…
Every job is an education- “I’ve directed CG camera moves, which is like being on a “virtual set”, you pick the lens, the lights, the move, it’s incredible” says Ramsey. This was true on the Canon and ZipLoc spots that Ramsey recently directed. Ramsey has also been brought onto feature film projects for his deft touch and attention to detail. His cinematography has been featured in The Patriot, Blown Away, Men In Black and The Paper. Known to be always at the ready, Creativity Magazine labeled him a “work horse”. Greg thinks nothing of hopping on a plane to get a shot in Los Angeles and returning to New York the same day to continue editorial. He did just that to shoot the spokesman while completing a spot for the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation. As an avid supporter of public service work, The Lance Armstrong “Live Strong” yellow wrist band campaign was another exciting Public Service Spot that was an honor for Ramsey to be involved with. Ramsey has worked through Pointblank, Nola Pictures, Curious Pictures, Celsius Pictures, and Fahrenheit Films.
