As a storyteller Gil has always maintained a single focus - the audience. Whether it is for the stage, screen or television, for him, it is all about "the story", the message. Gil has always tried to appeal to a broad audience even when dealing with a story aimed at a very specific demographic group. His stories have a "truth" about life and reflect a theme about the human condition. 
 

Independent film-making has its trials. Low budgets, adverse working conditions and high pressure situations. Unlike "Hollywood Studio" pictures "Indie" movies do not have the luxuries that money can buy. "Indie" movie makers must rely on their ingenuity, creativity and their ability to improvise. The "cult-like" genre of the "Indie" movie has brought innovation to the mainstream "Hollywood" studio picture because of its uniqueness and originality. One of the most prolific filmmakers in the province, Gil's films have a far greater production value than the actual budget would allow. 

No Apology - Currently in Post Production

A group of women struggle to deal with the suicide of their best friend, but when dark secrets start unraveling, the suicide begins to look more and more like murder. Their quiet, isolated retreat turns into a psychological octagon and the emotional bloodletting threatens their survival.

Like a gift from heaven, Samuel, a neighbor turned grief counsellor, befriends the five woman and aids them through the mourning process. In an almost “Unearthly” manner, Samuel manipulates the women on a spiritual, emotional, physical and psychological level that causes the women to turn on each other like rabid cats. None are safe in this arena of survival. Like forbidden fruit, they just can’t leave this succulent alone. Even if it kills them. Is Samuel the Angel of Death or The Demon of Love?

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned…. Or lied to or, belittled or, conned or generally annoyed and you can be sure she will get payback and there will be, NO APOLOGY
