ENDORSEMENTS 'I first met Gary Gutierrez while producing THE BLACK STALLION.  So impressed was I with Gary’s innovative design work on the logo and advertising campaign, that I asked him to be part of our production team on future projects.  Not only is Gary highly motivated, he possesses a conscientious work ethic and demonstrates genuine creativity which has proven invaluable in the editing room.  He is a consummate professional and extremely versatile, contributing to a wide range of visual effects and directorial capabilities on various films.  The movie business is transitory by nature, frenzied and sometimes bleak.  As such, it is rare to find a person that leaves such a positive impression.  It has been a pleasure to work with Gary over the years.' - Francis Ford Coppola. 'MAX Q required a complex, interdisciplinary approach to visual effects.  Gary’s innate understanding of film storytelling, exceptional talent as an artist and his uncompromising technical standards helped to create stunning, purposeful visual effects which have deservedly earned Gary an Emmy Award nomination for Best Visual Effects.  Gary’s professionalism and commitment have also earned him the respect of his peers and he’s an absolute pleasure to work with.' -  David Roessell, Producer, MAX Q and THE LIZZIE McGUIRE MOVIE. 'Rarely in our careers are we fortunate enough to work with a person who is innately positve, highly motivated, incredibly creative, vastly competent, indisputably effective and above all, a talented and enjoyable person with whom to spend long shooting days.  No complaints, no whining, let’s just get it done.' -  Doug Claybourne, Executive Producer, JACK and SERPENT AND THE RAINBOW. 'I was fortunate enough to have worked with Gary several times during my tenure as President of American Zoetrope and producer for Francis Coppola. Gary worked for us as a Visual Effects Supervisor, 2nd unit Director and Main Title Designer.  We would turn to him whenever we needed a creative director who could take the concept and then be depended upon to to execute the vision without much supervision or control.   He always exhibits great taste and style, and works within the budget and schedule restraints required.  I am sure anyone who hires him will have a similar terrific experience.' -  Fred Fuchs, Executive Producer American Zoetrope.
