Once you meet Gabriel Stanley, you’ll be overwhelmed with all the projects on this young mans plate. From filmmaking to record making, Gabe is always in his creative lab, be it directing a music video with GIRLS’ Zosia Mamet for the band Ambassadors, or working on his own band called Prom. Currently, he owns and runs “I Love You As A Person”, a Production/Creative company focused on video and music content while serving as the DP/Editor for i am OTHER, Pharrell Wiliams’ YouTube. In the midst of all this juggling, Gabe managed to sit down and speak to The Inside Source about what gets him up every morning — a fun loving hunger to create!
