Gary J. Tunnicliffe Born and Raised in Staffordshire in the UK, obsessed with film as a child, sang and acted from an early age and was offered several opportunities to pursue drama school, but instead opted to self teach himself the burgeoning field of special make up effects.
Worked as make up effects artist/supervisor for 3 years at Pinewood Studios before moving to Los Angeles at age 24 to start a new make up fx company.
At age 26 wrote and directed his first feature film 'Within The Rock' for producer/actor Robert Patrick.
Has since directed actors including James Earl Jones, Chevy Chase, Christopher Lloyd, Chloe Grace Moretz, Dakota Fanning, Howie Mandel, Wallace Shawn, Delta Burke and Heather Langenkamp.
Has worked with directors such as David Fincher, Clive Barker, Tim Burton, Renny Harlin, Joe Dante, Wes Craven and Scott Derrickson
Has worked closely with actors including Robert DeNiro, John Travolta, Gerard Butler, Nicolas Cage, Johnny Lee Miller, Christian Slater, James Earl Jones, Christopher Lloyd, Dakota Fanning, Chloe Grace Moretz, Lynn Redgrave and William Fichtner
Now in his 26th year in the film industry (and in the wake of writing and directing the much anticipated Hellraiser: Judgment) Tunnicliffe has decided to focus purely on writing and directing genre stories and cinema
"I have loved working within the make up fx industry but I have decided to embrace whole heartedly the desire and need I feel to put the strange, compelling stories, dark images and illusions inside my head on to the page, stage and screen"
Gary lives in Bucharest, Romania and Los Angeles, California
