Hi! My name is Gabriel and I lead the Film School! I did my DTS in Perth back in 2002 and my Film School in Kona in 2012. I’ve been involved with filmmaking ever since and I just love it!
My wife and I launched a filmmaking collective in 2015 through which we make films and help others with theirs. We also started running the Film School and the Acting School at YWAM Dunham in 2016 and it’s so exciting to participate in sending young men and women into the film industry!
Interested in joining us for the next Film School? It would be awesome to meet you!
