Gary Nadeau Now


i am french, (big surprise!) and came to new york city in 1989 to go to nyu film school. that is where i first laid eyes on the work of orson welles... like many before me and many after, i was struck by the films' vision but, perhaps even more-so, by the man behind it. later, i grew to understand those kinds of multi-faceted geniuses such as mozart, eames or jobs as part of an exclusive club of those who, indeed, push the human race forward.

as my career took me in different directions, i studied orson's storytelling and flair for drama in everything i did. in the past 10 years, as the founder of a creative agency in nyc, i have been in the position to breathe some culture into an industry, that of design, that sorely needs it, and so we started to make short films. specifically lately, i have been interested in having conversations with people, not merely film interviews but actually talk. it has always seemed strange to me that talk shows in general only ever engage guests about what they may be promoting at the time, usually mere "vehicles" for the invited to distribute a piece of information that will usually be to his or her fiduciary advantage and i am rarely interested in hearing yet another talking point about how "it was an honor to work with brett ratner" or "a privilege to have nicki minaj guest on this track." what i have always wanted to hear were the meandering paths that spontaneous, if prepared, conversations between two human beings can take and being a fly on that wall. so imagine my excitement when the opportunity to meet orson welles' first daughter chris presented itself at the release of her memoir "in my father's shadow: a daughter remembers orson welles." ( (in stock!)

actually, don't imagine it, just press play...

    Cleveland Steelyards is magical. Watched with some experience of that landscape and remember stacks belching huge clouds of smoke and steam there, 1970. Imagine if that time-space could have been your subject!…loved the music.
