• GAYLE GALLAGHER | Producer
Although Gayle was born in Detroit and spent the first 13 years of her life there, she considers St. Louis home. When her family moved to the St. Louis suburb of Chesterfield, Gayle began attending John F. Kennedy Catholic High School. Before she had even graduated from high school, however, Gayle began to pursue what would become a lifelong passion for music - she began working at radio station KYMC 89.7 FM. She would go on to spend the next 7 years there as on air talent, music director, program director, and station manager.
Gayle attended St. Louis University on a scholarship, and after exhausting all of the audio production classes they had to offer, transfered to Webster University. At Webster she spent one year as an audio engineer in the sound studio, and also developed a love for video production. She went on to receive a degree in Media/Communications.
After graduation, Gayle dove into the corporate video world, writing, lighting, shooting, and editing training videos and documentaries for a variety of clients, including Reliable Life Insurance, Crane National Vendors, and the YMCA. She also continued expanding her career in radio, working as a line producer for the Post Modern Radio Network and as a producer for KUMR, where she produced the show "Brainstorm", which was distributed on National Public Radio.
After her brother was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, Gayle would be inspired to push her producing and organizing abilities further by becoming the captain of Team Sirius, 70 cyclists and crew members who organize events and solicit sponsors for the MS-150, an annual benefit bike ride. She would also launch the Annual Hollywood Party MS Fundraiser, an Oscar-night event that regularly attracts more than 200 guests. Both events are entering their 10th year.
Gayle began working with Pirate Pictures during TIMELINE, recording sound and creating sound effects for that short. She went on to produce three award-winning short films BAG OF TRICKS, CAPDANCE and LOVE BYTES and the music video RECAP, and is currently in Post-Production on Pirate's next feature, SHADOWLAND.
In the tiny amount of time she has left to herself, Gayle is also a successful freelance graphic artist and a partner in a business called Olde Friends. She lives on Historic Main Street in St. Charles, drives a Mini Cooper, and has a very fat cat named Ivan.
