About Gary

Currently seeking producers for a number of feature projects. Let's connect and get great films made.

I am a writer-director who has been making films since the turn of the millennium. I also have a keen interest in editing and sound design.

I am a film maker who is interested in the murkier side of existence. The Buddhists talk of “The dream-like nature of reality”, and this is an idea I like to explore cinematically in a dark and atmospheric manner. Nightmares and dream-scapes to provoke and entertain.

I am also interested in current social and environmental issues we face and like to explore how we come to terms with these issues through film.
