Self-taught director/editor Theo Gelernter (Theo Gee) never intended to be a film maker.
He studied psychology at university in a vain attempt to try and make sense of people and why, for the most part, he wasn't very fond of them. But also because he was curious about why he kept dating girls who made porridge the same way his mum used to make. After realising he wasn't making headway in either of these pursuits, he turned to film making which seemed to be a natural progression.
Theo’s first short film “Amber” won Best Short Film at a festival no one has ever heard of, and critics hailed it as "a good try", "distinctly average" and "I'll never get those 20 minutes back". He hopes that people think his other short films are better.
After graduating and doing short stint at the BBC, Theo joined a production company as a junior editor, and within a year or so, he had somehow convinced to make him Creative Director. In 2019, he left the company to go freelance, and will probably regret that decision at some point.
In his spare time, Theo likes to stand very still and pretend he is a filing cabinet.
