Bob Ray is an American filmmaker based out of Austin, Texas. He has made dozens of short films and music videos.

In 1994 he founded the production company CrashCam Films. CrashCam Films' first productions were narrative Super 8 mm films and music videos. Bob Ray's in-camera-edited Super 8 short “Sweet Sweetroll’s BaadAsssss Spin” found its way onto indie producer John Pierson’s show Split/Screen on the Independent Film Channel and Bravo (television network).

Ray made his feature film debut with the rock ‘n’ roll stoner cult film Rock Opera. Ray wrote and directed Rock Opera with very limited resources. The film has accumulated several positive reviews, including a handful of four-star reviews and a 2003 High Times Magazine nomination for a Stony Film Award.

Ray has produced and directed several music videos, including a video for the Grammy nominated song “Fried Chicken and Coffee” by Nashville Pussy, and videos for songs by The Riverboat Gamblers, U.S.S. Friendship, Dambaby (featuring Sam McCandless of Cold), The Phantom Creeps and more.

Continuing his close affiliation with the music community, Ray has worked with The Polyphonic Spree, Black Eyed Peas, Eels, Jerry Cantrell, Blur, Supergrass, The Rapture, Junior Brown, Jurassic Five, Puffy, Modest Mouse, Pete Yorn, Clinic, Starsailor, Don Walser, The Shins, Ozo Matli, Stephen Malkmus, Hank Williams III, X-Ecutioners, …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead and many others.

Ray recently completed work on a critically acclaimed feature length documentary film about the resurgence of all-girl roller derby. Hell on Wheels tells the story of a group of Texas women who band together to resurrect the sport of roller derby.
