Actor\Producer, and homegrown Washington, D.C. talent Gray Ellis has always done things in a big way. At an age when most men are finding their way through either corporate America or some blue collar job, Gray took the plunge, back in 2012 into the expansive talent pool that is Hollywood appearing on shows such as 'Criminal Minds' and 'CSI: NY.' Working with director Ashleigh Coffelt in 2016, he has again pushed through the envelope of the expected and started pre-production on the psychiatric thriller, which looks into apparent supernatural events unleashed by a momentous thunderstorm.

How can this film lose? The log line alone paints quite an impressive picture:

"Claire begins experiencing what appears to be supernatural events within her home during, a major thunderstorm.

What Claire discovers next will change her life forever."

Ellis, in a July 22, 2016 interview, spoke at length about the upcoming film and how it drew on talent from the Washington, D.C. area.

William Powell: 'Enclosed 's a film about the supernatural, why did you choose that genre?

Gray Ellis: Well not to give away any spoilers but I'd say it's more along the lines of a psychiatric thriller. 

WP: Tell me about the character Claire?

GE: Claire, DMV's (DC, Maryland, Virginia area), own Courtney Birk is the lovable New Yorker Gal. Outgoing, daring and downright crazy about her bae/boyfriend Ralph. Claire discovers throughout the film that she's only scratched the surface of who she is and what she's capable of.
