Hi, I'm a film director & producer from France. From the first draft to a finished project, I strive to give rich visuals and a sense of closure to the stories I tell. Aside from my own films, I gladly work as a camera operator and as a producer.
Gabriel Galand is a film director and cinematographer from France, currently based in Vancouver, BC, Canada. He started directing in 2010 when he moved London, UK to attend a film workshop. Moving back to France in 2011, he enrolled at the international film school of Paris where he majored in cinematography. Upon receiving his bachelor of fine arts in 2014, Gabriel presented two of his short films "Cold Green Eyes" and "Horla" to festivals, receiving more than seventy selections around the world. Later, Gabriel moved to Seoul, South Korea where he directed commercials and videos for Korean and international brands, all the while collaborating with international artists. After spending a year and a half in Korea, Gabriel directed "Above the Mist", a short film on assisted suicide, before moving back to France. Collaborating with a Swiss-American producer, Gabriel directed his fifth short film "Resilience" in Switzerland before moving to Vancouver, British Columbia. His film Horla is currently distributed by Prime Video in Asia and by Shudder and Shorts TV in North America.
