Gary stems from the land of hills, poetry and raw-rare people, Co. Monaghan! As an emerging filmmaker he specializes in areas such as; Writing, Direction and Cinematography (Land & Aerial). Whether scripting dialogue or discussing overall aesthetics, Gary's main goal is always to achieve the right tone that compliments and elevates each project's individual narrative.
Throughout Gary's creative development, he has always had a strong interest in education and the theoretical progression of one's practice/passion, completing degrees in Art & Design (Galway), Film & Television (IADT, FAMU Prague International) and Masters in Film (Queen's University Belfast). Gary describes the time spent in these universities as; "Worth its weight in gold" - giving him the fortunate opportunity to be mentored by some exceptional lecturers within the industry; Giovanni Robbiano (screenplay), Pavel Jech (screenplay), Michael Gahut (cinematography), Beth Lazroe (Photography & Visual Communication), Des O'Rawe (Political Film), Jerry Coyle (Acting) and David Keating (Writing, Directing) to name a few.
Since entering into the film industry Gary has worked as an Editor, Motion Graphics Designer, Sound Recordist, 1st AD, Cinematographer, Writer & Director and has been involved in 20+ short films (fiction & documentary) that have made successful, worldwide cinema festival outings. Commercially, he has worked with some of the biggest names both inside and outside of Ireland. Recently, Gary was a director on the Fuel Productions team that won two prestigious Eventex awards in 2021 for producing the 'All Together Gathering Event' for Paypal. The first of its kind, a live-streamed event designed to gather Paypal employees from 52 countries, 13 time zones and entertain them for 72 hours with an interactive program of performances and workshops. With an unrelenting appetite to create, Gary thrives in these high-pressured environments.
