Dominic Gill is an English Director, cinematographer and television host. His life has always been firmly rooted in the world of adventure, and capturing those adventures on camera. At the age of 26, after studying Biology in the UK and working briefly in the field of Environmental Science, he made the decision to dive head first into chasing his dreams. He bought a tandem bicycle, a heavy production camera and a machete and flew up to the oil fields of Northern Alaska. It took him two years and two months to cycle to the southerly tip of Argentina, inviting random strangers to help pedal his tandem south and share their stories on camera. The resulting documentary and book entitled 'Take A Seat' won multiple international awards including the coveted Jury Prize at the Banff Mountain Film Festival. This project fundamentally shaped the course that Dominic is now on. Two further Tandem driven adventures followed creating two award-winning seasons of television distributed worldwide.
In 2012 Dominic took his adventure film production knowledge and lent it to countless brands including Reebok, Red Bull, Timbuk2 and Black Diamond, directing and shooting content that gets to the heart of the brands through character driven short films.
In 2017 he completed his first feature length documentary film ‘Coming to my Senses’, winning numerous awards including an ‘Audience Award’ at the Austin Film Festival.
Very much at home in what most would regard as ‘uncomfortable’ situations, dangling from a rope or crouched beneath a racehorse in a starting box, Dominic is forever hunting for and angle on stories that viscerally communicate what it means to be human.
