The Filmmaker

Executive Producer Alan Lacy

Alan Lacy brings his passion for all things wild to his new film, “Gray Area: Wolves of the Southwest”. His fascination with the critically endangered Mexican gray wolf, and his desire to do something to help, spurred him on the journey of producing this (his first) film. Since those beginnings in 2011, Alan has tracked the Mexican gray wolf from a captive breeding program through release into the wild, and brought his love of photography and storytelling to document the efforts of men and women dedicated to restoring these magnificent apex predators to their natural habitat. He has furthered the cause with a website devoted to raising awareness of the Mexican gray wolf’s natural history and its endangered status, as well as gathering support for this film and wolf recovery. Alan has a background in aviation, and recently relocated with his wife to Portland, Oregon. They spend their free time exploring the Cascades of Washington and Oregon.

“I have learned a lot over the course of producing this film, about wolves, about filmmaking, and about people. I believe we all can make a difference, we just have to start doing.”
