 Co-Founder, Gravy Pictures
Gravy PicturesGravy Pictures is an independent film and television production company located outside NYC. Founded by Ben Niles, Molly Raskin and Megan Wetherall, Gravy specializes in documentary-style, in-depth storytelling. Our original documentary series, The Big Table, is an intimate, compelling and often surprising look at the lives of food producers – from third generation dairy farming and fishing families, to a young chef who raises heritage turkeys and has united residents in his rural town with a Community Supported Agriculture Program. The first episode in our series, MILK features the Osofsky family, owners of Ronnybrook Farm, who have been milking in the Hudson Valley since the 1940s. Within 15 miles of their small town of Pine Plains, NY, there were once 50 dairy farms. Today, theirs is the only one left.
