Growing up surrounded by a creative family, Gia studied photography and graduated from Bard College. When asked to be in a video by a friend, she declined. The friend challenged her to make her own video instead, launching her into the ‘behind-the- camera action’ and following in the footsteps of her family of filmmakers by directing shorts for Opening Ceremony, DVF, and Zac Posen for Target. In 2014, Gia made her directorial feature film debut with “Palo Alto,” based on James Franco’s collection of short stories.
Since her feature, she has directed commercials for Facebook, Nest, and Secret, and music videos for Carly Rae Jepsen and Blood Orange, through her uncle’s production company, The Directors Bureau. She brings her filmic voice, sensibilities, and fresh eye to each project.
