Daily Planet Productions has added Michael Gabriele to their team as Producer/Director. Gabriele will be using his agency experience (Element 79, DDB, and Havas Worldwide) to help expand their production capabilities. "More and more, we're becoming a full-service content provider with our clients, and since we've enjoyed working with Michael for years on the agency side, he felt like a natural, skilled addition to our family," said Daily Planet President Scott Marvel.
“This is a fantastic opportunity I couldn’t pass up," Gabriele said. "Daily Planet has some great plans for the near future and I’m pleased to be a part of their growth and expansion.”
In addition to producing, Gabriele has experience as a Director/DP. His short films have won numerous awards and appeared in several local and national film festivals. Most recently, the CATastrophes Web Series, for which he is the Director/Editor/Co-Creator, was picked up by Discovery Digital Networks and is now featured on Animalist.com.
Gabriele grew up in Grayslake, IL. He has been making films since he was a child. He graduated from Illinois Wesleyan University, where he started the university’s very first film club. He got his professional start in the ad industry at Optimus before becoming a full-time producer at Element 79 in 2004.
