Gabriel Anderson was born in Atlanta, grew up in Colorado, and moved to Los Angeles shortly after completing high school.  He worked as a clerk at Warner Bros. Studios before being promoted to Studio Operations Manager at age 23 (and Director nine years later), working as a site rep, location scheduler and logistics coordinator on a wide variety of television, feature and commercial productions, including films directed by Terrence Malick, the Coen Bros., Steven Soderbergh, Tony Scott, Amy Heckerling, Todd Phillips, and the late Adam “MCA” Yauch.  In 2008, Gabriel led a small excursion of LA-based cast and crew back to his hometown of Gunnison, CO to make his debut as writer/director on Walk, a self-financed, digitally-photographed short(ish) film that follows a young woman’s gradual psychological recovery from a traumatic attack.  Walk was followed in 2012 by the short Of Leisure, an exercise in narrative and technical improvisation that concerns the mysterious self-actualization of a hedonistic actor.

Five years later, Gabriel returns to independent film with his proper debut feature ENTROPY, from a script (written in collaboration with his wife, Jen) that details a brilliant, hard-living woman’s discovery of the universe’s impending demise.  Trading small-town Colorado for the striking urban dichotomy of San Francisco, ENTROPY maintains the collective-oriented, independently financed production ideology of Gabriel’s earlier work, yet also represents a cosmic leap forward in formal experimentation and philosophical scope.
