Gary Theobald is a Director of Photography and Producer, with over thirty years of experience working in broadcast television and video. He is the man behind Gary Theobald Productions Inc., a multi-service company which specializes in providing fully equipped broadcast video crews to networks, production companies and corporations.
In his formative years, Gary worked as a cameraman at various TV stations: first at CHCH-TV 11 in Hamilton, Ontario; then moving on to TCN Channel 9 in Sydney, Australia; and finally as Head Cameraman at CKVU-13 in Vancouver.
Gary moved to Montréal in 1985 – working freelance for most major networks and production companies, both local and foreign.
In 1989, Gary Theobald Productions was incorporated with a single-camera Betacam package, and a strong client base developed over the years working freelance in the broadcast markets. As his reputation and demand grew, Gary began hiring hand-picked experienced DPs and support crews to service his clientele. The company naturally evolved from a single-camera owner operation, to a multi-camera full service company.
Gary Theobald has a BA in Applied Arts in Communications from Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada. He has shot extensively throughout Quebec, Canada, the USA, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
Cory Horowitz has been a partner in Gary Theobald Productions since its inception. She produces projects for both corporate and broadcast clients, is the company’s primary administrator, and is our resident media manager and technology consultant. Cory has a meticulous eye for the myriad of details that come across her desk daily.
Previous to incorporating the company with Gary Theobald, Cory’s achievements were diverse: she travelled the world extensively, managed a small lithography business in Vancouver, and studied Fine Arts and Philosophy at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada.
Cory’s 27 years of hands-on production experience, creativity, computer savvy, and understanding of business are valuable assets and an integral part of our company.
At Gary Theobald Productions, Cory remains on the front lines, as one of our main client-service representatives. She identifies our clients’ needs and requests with a keen sensibility, and conveys those requirements to our production team.
