PRIDE AND GLORY

GAVIN O'CONNOR (Director/Screenwriter) first gained attention when he directed the independent feature "Tumbleweeds,” starring Janet McTeer and Kimberly Brown. O'Connor also co-wrote the screenplay with Angela Shelton, based on Shelton's childhood diaries. The mother-daughter road drama brought O'Connor the Filmmaker's Award at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival, and went on to earn widespread critical acclaim. In addition, McTeer earned several Best Actress honors for her performance, including Oscar® and Independent Spirit Award nominations and a Golden Globe Award, while Brown won an Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Actress.

O'Connor's next directing effort was the critically acclaimed 2004 hit "Miracle,” which was also his first major studio feature. The film starred Kurt Russell in the inspiring story of the U.S. Hockey Team's Gold Medal triumph at the 1980 Winter Olympics, including a stunning victory over the seemingly invincible Russian team.

O'Connor is currently in pre-production on the independent feature "Warrior,” a drama he co-wrote and will direct. In "Warrior,” the world's fastest growing sport, Mixed Martial Arts, is explored in the cathartic tale of two estranged brothers on a collision course for the heavyweight championship of the world.

Additionally, he is developing a comedy-drama titled "Sunny and 68,” about a professional poker superstar who suffers an epic meltdown on national television that ruins his career. Disgraced, in debt and on the run, he reluctantly returns to the blue collar hometown he fled after high school, where he finds love and redemption through three generations of women who teach him what it is to be a man. O'Connor also has a wide range of projects in various stages of development for different studios and production entities.

A native New Yorker, O'Connor began writing while studying at the University of Pennsylvania. After graduation, he moved back to New York, where he began his career writing short films and plays. O'Connor made his screenwriting debut with the award-winning short film "The Bet,” which also marked Ted Demme's film directorial debut. O'Connor then wrote and directed the short film "American Standoff.” He also wrote several stage plays, including "Rumblings of a Romance Renaissance,” in which he co-starred.

O'Connor has also directed several television projects, most recently including the telefilm "The Prince.” In addition, he served as a producer on the independent film "The Slaughter Rule,” starring Ryan Gosling, and as an executive producer on the documentaries "The Smashing Machine” and "Mule Skinner Blues.”
