Director Biography - Gabriel GAlway

I am an artist who works with a wide variety of art forms. I usually work with narrative as a central theme in my work and have always had a love for filmmaking and graphic novels.
I'm currently in my final year of my fine art painting degree at the National College of Art & Design in Dublin.

Director Statement

For some making a baby can be the easy part, but for many staying together to raise that child into a man or woman, and give it all the love and all of the time a child needs, well that's the hard part! Unfortunately, for a lot of people, things don't always work out that way.
I may very well have NOT existed if things had turned out differently between my parents, but I certainly wouldn't be the man I am today without them. I wouldn't be here, I wouldn't be writing this statement. So I've made this movie to thank them, because I've never been happier with who I am today. I am Gabriel.
