Award-winning live action director and writer Gary Nadeau specializes in the subtle alchemy of words and images, uncovering grand stories in real people and writing them onto the screen. Nadeau began his career in filmmaking studying Fine Arts at the Cleveland Institute and NYU's Tisch School of the Arts where his thesis film Red won the Gold Medal at the 1994 Student Academy. The short has since appeared in festivals worldwide.
Gary's love of crafting compelling narratives carved out a seat for him at Hollywood's writing table, where he wrote and sold nearly a dozen screenplays, including Jack, which was directed by Francis Ford Coppola. From the intimate to the cinematic, Nadeau weaves and writes stories, completing the work from concept to production. In terms of nurturing his work from start to finish, Nadeau maintains that the "poetry of a project can also be created in the post production." Over the last five years Nadeau has directed nearly thirty short films for Dwell, several music videos for Universal Music Group, an extensive corporate advert-film for Downtown Dubai, and a short film (Pizza Verdi), which was produced by Les Miserables creator and lyricist Alain Boublil.
Nadeau's ability to synthesize the personal with the pictorial has landed him 7 Vimeo staff picks, numerous festival awards, and much critical acclaim. Nadeau now calls the East Coast home where he lives with his wife, three children, and the stories he continues to bring to life each day.
