Micah Gallo is a film maker and content creator with extensive industry credits and experience in virtually every aspect of production. His conviction to creating cutting edge effects led him to co-found the award winning visual post-production facility, Lit Post.
Lit Post was established to provide independent films with the level of quality visual post-production needed to compete with Hollywood blockbusters. While at Lit Post, Micah performed visual post-production on over 40 feature films, as well as numerous music videos and commercials. Under his direction, Lit Post also provided post-production on films for major production companies and studios including Lionsgate, Disney, Glass Eye Pix, MPI, The Genre Co, Image Entertainment, Anchor Bay and Magnolia Pictures. Lit Post garnered coverage in American Cinematographer for their extensive work on the theatrically released feature, Frozen, in 2010.
In addition to Lit Post, Micah founded a production company, Sandbox Group. His company was recently contracted by Joseph Farms, one of the largest dairy farms on the west coast, to produce a series of promotional and commercial spots. Going forward, this company will maintain a focus on branded promotional content along with brand storytelling communications.
Although his love for film started much earlier, Micah’s involvement in film began in college. He was 1st AD on The Oates Valor, a short film that was accepted at the Sundance and Cannes Film Festivals. His career has included working with notable directors and producers such as Richard Saperstein, Lloyd Kaufman, and James Gunn. Micah also spent time at Raw Nerve, a production company spearheaded by film maker Eli Roth, which developed and produced independent low-budget genre features.
In addition to the dozens of executive producer credits he received through Lit Post, Micah most recently served as co-producer on the theatrically released horror-comedy, Silent Night.
Micah wrote, directed, and produced the short film Wick, notable for being the first film shot on the revolutionary Dalsa 4K digital format. Wick was awarded Best Director and Best Cinematography awards at the Sacramento Horror Film Festival in 2011. Wick was also honored with an Emerging Cinematography award for Achievement in Cinematography from the International Cinematographers Guild.
Most recently, Micah’s short, Massacre Lake, won Best Horror Short at the Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival.
He is also hard at work developing his first feature film, a family drama creature-thriller.
