British Producer/Screenwriter/Director Gary Brightman is new to the film industry. Having spent 35 years in the Banking and Information Technology sector (London and Hong Kong), he was commissioned to write a family film set in Hong Kong/China. Deciding he needed further experience in the film industry, in 2014 he enrolled at The International Academy of Film and Television (IAFT) in Hong Kong and qualified top of his year, gaining a Diploma in Filmmaking.
During that year of study, Gary realised that his passion is documentary film making, allowing him to combine his personal interests in music and history.
His maturing years give him a strong work ethic and a wealth of life experiences.
Since February 2013 he is finally following his creative passion rather than the backstabbing world of corporate life.
Being possessed with a good sense of humour, he’s gutsy with a youthful personality.
