About Me


Hi! As you've probably gathered, my name is Paul and I'm a filmmaker. Here are some things about me:

  • As I'm sure you've already been wondering, my last name is pronounced with a silent H (“gel-ming.”) Its origins are Swedish, though a proper Swede would pronounce it “hyell-ming.” Why did my ancestors decide to pronounce it wrong? Your guess is as good as mine.
  • In 2013, I graduated from Bethel University, majoring in communication studies and minoring in film.
  • It's hard to pick favorites but some directors that I love are are Krzysztof Kieślowski, Ingmar Bergman, Todd Haynes, Paul Thomas Anderson, Brian De Palma, Terry Gilliam, and Terrence Malick.
  • I'm a huge perfectionist, I love waking up early and my Myers-Briggs type is ENFJ.
  • When I'm not watching or making films I like to pretend I'm good at graphic design, visit art museums, and read thought-provoking books.

If you're interested in hiring me for a project or just want to discuss your interpretations of L'Année dernière à Marienbad (or lack thereof) you can contact me over here.
