Mini Bio (1)
The son of a surveyor and whom never went to film school (though studied the work of many movies throughout his life), Gidlow earnestly began filmmaking in 2009 after creating a short 5-minute contest entry for YouTube's ProjectDirect. The seeds were planted then for what would become his first film: "Victor James" - a film in which has begun a re-editing process for release in film festivals and through online social media in 2014.
The film most influential for Gidlow's overall writing and directing approach is "Leon: The Professional", a film by Luc Besson. His other favorites include "The Dark Knight Rises", "Contact", "Executive Decision", and "The Fugitive".
Gidlow has been working on a script for his first feature film and hopes to begin production within the next one to two years. He is also an avid hockey fan and enjoys professional wrestling, spending time with his niece, and working in web design and content editing for an online poker website.
Gidlow is the older brother of Daniel Gidlow, famous for his work on his YouTube channel (Danz Newz Machinima) and The Creature Hub.
