Gaëlle is a freelance filmmaker based in London. Having lived in Asia, the US and Europe, Gaelle brings her cultural experiences into the worlds that she creates in her films.

She works as a Producer, Writer and Director, though not always all at the same time. Her critically acclaimed fiction work has screened all over the world, with her latest project, Mechanical Souls, premiering at the Kaohsiung Film Festival. Mechanical Souls was selected as part of Google Jumpstart’s 2018 program, as well as the 75th Venice Biennale Production Bridge and was a part of the Kaohsiung Film Festival VR Lab.

Gaëlle is a classical 2D Filmmaker as well as a VR Director. Bilingual in French and English, she works in both languages and is always up for a new challenge – Gaëlle travels internationally for her projects and is ever ready for the next adventure.
