‘Franklyn’ – Gerald’s self-scripted debut feature was produced by Jeremy Thomas and Recorded Picture Company. It premiered at the 2008 London BFI Film Festival. Following the journeys of four seemingly unconnected individuals, ‘Franklyn’ takes us on a journey of the dysfunctional, the lost and the downright extraordinary.

Gerald is currently developing a new feature based on the novel ‘The Glamour’ by Christopher Priest, whose previous novel was turned into the feature ‘The Prestige’. Story Film have come on board.
