Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gary Sherman, born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, United States, started directing short films, commercials, industrials, and documentaries while still an undergraduate at IIT's Institute of Design. After graduating, Gary moved to London, England, where he continued directing commercials, then co-wrote and directed his first feature film, Death Line starring Donald Pleasence. The British Film Institute called this debut "The Most Significant Directorial Debut of the Year." Upon relocating to Los Angeles, California, he continued writing and collaborating on many feature scripts. He also wrote and directed several television pilots. Then Ronald Shusett asked Gary to direct the horror film Dead & Buried for Avco-Embassy. Gary followed that by helming the action/thriller Vice Squad shot by Stanley Kubrick's DP John Alcott. Like Death Line, these films often polarized critics and audiences and have since gone on to become genre classics.show more
