Writer Biography


Gary is an award-winning filmmaker who jumped in at the deep end - writing, funding, directing, shooting, producing and editing the horror-comedy feature, Flatmates Wanted which, despite having almost no budget, obtained NZ-wide DVD release via Vendetta Films in 2007. He has developed his original horror feature script, Psychomanteum with UK production company, Hummingbird Films, and more recently NZ’s Urgency Films, and was represented from 2015-2018 by LA based Atchity Entertainment International for his original horror-thriller feature script, In the Moonlight. This project has since received EDF funding and is being developed with NZ producer Simone Ashton. Gary has been short-listed for numerous NZFC funding schemes – including Headstrong, Escalator, and Fresh Shorts, and he and Simone were participants in Script to Screen’s prestigious Short Film Lab in March 2019. Gary’s short films have won awards and screened at festivals around the world, and his no-budget short, Whites Beach starring Dwayne Cameron was licensed to NZ Sky TV’s Rialto channel. Gary’s short doco, Raising the Peaceable Kingdom was a finalist out of hundreds of films in VOFF4, the 2nd Viewster Online Film Festival 100K competition, and his short fantasy film, Labyrinth Rocks was the only NZ representative amongst 400 films in VOFF3. Gary has numerous short and feature projects in development.
