Director Biography - Logan Calder, Gabriella Diaz, Austin Segal

Since he first laid hands on a camera of his own, Logan Calder has been shooting video of anything he can find. An award-winning screenwriter, director, cinematographer and editor, Logan has worked for nearly a decade on poignant dramas, dark comedies, and documentary films, and is never happier than when doing so. Typically carrying a message in mind, Logan has covered issues ranging from gun control to child poverty to the struggles of fitting in, but also likes to have fun with some less serious shorts.

Gabriella Diaz, 16, has worked on various films of her own as well as NJ Film School, beginning at the age of nine. Gabriella has worked on every aspect of the crew — writer, gaffer, cinematographer, editor, etc. — but she is in her element as a director. She is most proud of an independent film she created in 2016, entitled “Words,” about the struggles of verbal harassment. Alongside two of her peers from NJ Film School, namely Austin Segal and Logan Calder, she helped to create a short documentary about the March For Our Lives movement, “Bulletproof,” shot at the March For Our Lives protest on March 24, 2018 in Washington D.C. Made entirely within 24 hours, she directed “Lemonhead,” an award-winning film about a boy’s lemonade stand gone wrong.

Austin Segal has been making films since he was grabbing the home video camera from his mom at just three years old. Since then, he has worked to improve his filmmaking abilities by attending NJ Film School for seven years, making short films on his own, and writing on his filmmaking blog, segalcinematics.com. His portfolio includes countless dramas, a few comedies, some promotional videos, a PSA, and a documentary. He was the cinematographer for the award-winning short film “Two of These Things,” and he was a co-director, cinematographer, and editor of the award-winning suicide-prevention PSA “You Deserve a Brighter Tomorrow.” He and his friends co-directed “Bulletproof,” an award-winning gun control documentary filmed at the march in Washington D.C. Recently, he wrote and directed “The Phone Rang,” a one-shot film about a teen who blames himself for his friend’s suicide, and “Markers,” about a girl who is outed as lesbian at school and decides to redefine her own labels.
