About Screenwriter Gunnar Garrett

GUNNAR GARRETT was born and raised in Modesto, California, home of George Lucas, and the feature film American Graffiti.

After high school Gunnar joined the United States Air Force where he worked as a
Nuclear Weapons Specialist for four years. He then continued his military career by joining the Army National Guard and an infantry division. During his eight years with the National Guard, he volunteered to deploy to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

After returning from a one-year deployment oversees, Gunnar was honorably
discharged from the military and decided to continue his education in Mechanical
Design. He spends most of his free time with his five daughters enjoying the things he wasn’t able to because of his military service and deployments.

His second oldest daughter Madison Mae, one of his identical twins began to show
interest in the film industry, which sparked Gunnar’s interest in writing, with the goal of creating a lead role for his daughter. With countless hours spend studying film,
screenplays, reading anything related to, not only screenplays, but story telling in
general, Gunnar’s been able to successfully fulfill his first goal by obtaining a lead role in a feature film for his daughter.

Recently, his daughter Madison has also been nominated for Best Actress by several film festivals for her work in the short film Remnants.

In addition to his writing, Gunnar has also begun acting, which started with the
successful marketing campaign by Zillow, which includes Gunnar and his daughters in a national commercial about what home means to them.

Gunnar’s screenplays have now been awarded more than fifty combined nominations
and wins at Film Festivals and writing competitions globally, showing his continued
commitment to excellence in writing.

With his military experience, attention to detail, and strong work ethic, Gunnar will
continue writing, and producing quality films.
