Gabriel Campisi began shooting Super-8mm films at the age of eight, and by the age of 15 he was entering and winning film festivals and contests across the country. He has worked on everything from pop-star music videos and Mrs. America Pageants to national commercials, HBO Specials, ESPN Sports, independent and studio features, and everything in between. He is a proficient cinematographer and Premiere-Pro editor, and has vast experience working with practical and pyrotechnic visual effects, as well as computer-generated imagery (CGI).
His writing has been published in newspapers and small-press magazines. He has written for industry and genre publications, including Hollywood Reporter and Fangoria Magazine, and he studied screenwriting with professor Richard Walter of UCLA's Screenwriting Department.
Gabe spent several years dealing in the high-stakes world of motion-picture finance, subsequently writing a best-selling book on the subject. He has first-hand experience in every facet of filmmaking, from the creative to the technical to the fiscal. Because of this, he is in the unique position of being able to achieve a balance among these three very different worlds without compromising the quality of the final product. He understands the writer’s problems, the technician’s problems, the director’s problems, as well as the producer’s problems. He understands on a personal level. He has been there.
He is a member of the Producers Guild of America (P.G.A.).
