In 2021 and early 2022 he produced two films for the Hallmark Channel, Presence of Love and Christmas in London (a co-production with Canada). Later in 2022 he produced the Olga Kurylenko film Boudica for Bleiberg Entertainment with Lucinda Thakrar of Picture Perfect and in 2023 he was the UK producer on the Canada/Malta/UK co-production The Dancing Detective and on the Canada/Belgium/UK co-production the River Cruise Romances.

Gary, similarly with 30 years-experience in the independent film sales arena, guides the companys’ sales, marketing and associated activities. These include attendance at the major film markets, the EFM (European Film Market), Cannes Marche (Film Market) and AFM (the American Film Market) as well as festivals where the company's films play.
