Growing up with an overactive imagination and a self-prescribed diet of movies and comics led Gerald to an inevitable life and career in film. A graduate of the New York Film School, Gerald began his career in the field of music video, writing and directing for artists such as Tom Jones, Catatonia, Ultrasound and many others. His career naturally progressed to commercials, picking up awards from the Creative Circle, The Green Awards and The British Television Advertising Awards.
His short film “Thespian X” was awarded the London Film Festival’s first prize as well as being selected for the Panorama at the Berlin Film Festival, New York’s Tribeca Film Festival and was subsequently purchased for distribution by Dimension/Miramax. Gerald has since written and directed his first feature “Franklyn,” a noir-esque fantasy thriller set in London. “Franklyn” stars Ryan Phillipe, Eva Green, Bernard Hill and Sam Riley and was produced by Oscar-winning Jeremy Thomas (“Sexy Beast,” “Young Adam,” “The Last Emperor”).
Gerald’s style is distinctive; visually striking, skillfully crafted, with a close attention to detail that makes his work immediately recognizable and wonderfully unique. He is based in London and continues to write and work for the screen.
