A lot of us enjoyed watching Dracula Untold starring Luke Evans and Sarah Gaddon, but not many of us notice the names of directors of our favorite movies.
If you compare the amount of followers the director is left in the dust, behind his stars with only 1,223, so please find him at @garyshore81 According to IMDb “Gary Shore is a director hailing from Artane on Dublin’s North side.
Having studied film in GMIT and IADT, Ireland, and fine art at Central Saint Martins in London, Gary carved out a career as a high-end commercials director for some of the worlds biggest brands, before transitioning to film with his first feature, Dracula Untold. Gary first came to Hollywood’s attention in 2009 for a faux film trailer he directed called The Cup of Tears, which lead to a development deal with Working Title Films, and a subsequent three picture deal with Universal.”
Gary is not very active on his Twitter account, but he did a live Q & A on Twitter earlier this year where he answered patiently any question thrown at him with a surprising sense of humor spending over three hours with his fans. You can see all questions and his answers at this link created by a twitter account @saou_SJ

Currently Gary is working as a producer for ArtCastle Productions on a new project, a Horror Anthology called Holidays. He is also listed on Demanjo as a contributing director next to Kevin Smith, Scott Stewart and Matt Johnson among others. Each feature segment is based on a holiday such as Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s Day, Halloween, Mother’s Day, and Gary’s contribution is very appropriate given his Irish heritage, St. Patrick’s Day!
On IMDb Gary Shore is listed as having started filming for Holidays on May 5th 2015. With so many holidays included in the anthology one can only speculate on a release date. We wish Gary Shore best of luck for his new project. We also still hope for a sequel of Dracula Untold, even though he gave us little hope during his Q & A on Twitter, and look forward to his next tweet.
