ABOUT

Making films is hard. Making films is very expensive. Making films is perhaps one of the most collaborative endeavors one can imagine. And all that it takes to make a film – hundreds of crew, cast, years of negotiations, money, and logistics – starts with a script, with a story. As humans, we have been telling each other stories since even the earliest forms of communication, and storytelling remains one of our most powerful tools for human connection to this day.

The humble approach of Gallico Productions in this ever-evolving world of film is to focus on stories that move the soul and that have the potential to transform. Stories about powerful, complex, and flawed characters. Stories that inspire and imagine new possibilities for and by those that exist in the margins. Stories about overcoming adversity and holding on to hope and human empathy. 

 

Gallico Productions surrounds itself with a network of strong, motivated, and fair individuals – directors, screenwriters, actors, fellow producers. Collaboration drives us. There’s gotta be trust (lots of it), hard work, and a lot of fun and creativity too to bring these stories to life. That’s how Gallico Productions operates. We’re a filmmaking family – join us if you share our beliefs. Let’s make a movie!
