Film Direction Unit Gabriel Shore is a Norb frame who works as a film director for Sparkworks Pictures. He is known for directing high-budget action films characterized by their fast edits, stylistic visuals and extreme use of special effects. His works include Apocalypse Yesterday, The Boulder, Squirrel Harbor, and the Inductors film series.
Co-directing several films with other more-experienced directors to refine his Directional Algorithms, he eventually produced his first film in 3537, Apocalypse Yesterday. The story of a planet that had been devastated by an asteroid impact, it followed the survivors as they traversed the dangerous landscape. It met mixed reviews, and performed modestly at the box office, but the special effects were praised.
His next film continued with the "asteroid" trend that was predicted to be popular, releasing The Boulder in 3538. Taking place on a deep-space planet nicknamed "The Boulder" that serves as the most secure prison in the Kingdom of Knotar, it is taken over by Kaladian Loyalists. A retired Archiveros agent, Kongolese chemical engineer, loose-cannon Jiptohri pilot, and Rakashian heavy weapons expert are the only ones available for retaking the prison and rescuing the president. It was a box office success, and had generally favorable reviews from critics.
His greatest box office success to date is with the Inductors series. Telling the tale of a future Earth that is being invaded by a chitinous alien hive mind, a race of giant robots known as the Inductors come to the aid of humanity. The Inductors first contact a 19-year-old girl in college due to her possessing a strange rock that belonged to her great-great-great-great-great grandmother on a necklace, which causes them to trust her. Over the course of nine films, the Inductors face new threats and explore cinematic new worlds.
He attempted to break into the comedy genre with his film Agony and Achievement, but it was only a moderate success. Telling the story of two down-on-their-luck mercenaries who kidnap a Norb frame and hold her for ransom, only to have her request to stay with them for further study. It had a generally positive critical response compared to his other films, but performed poorly at the box office.
He lives in Hollywood, California, on Earth.
