Festival international du film d'animation d'Annecy - 2020
Tribeca Film Festival - 2020
In To: Gerard, writer/director Taylor Meacham pens a love letter to his father—one that unifies his love for animation and the art of illusion—to tell a heartfelt story about how life’s greatest magic is inspiring someone else to follow their dreams…even if you haven’t achieved your own. The short is produced by Jeff Hermann, and its music is by Layla Minoui.

Direction & Screenplay
After graduating from Emerson College in 2014 with a BA in film production, Taylor Meacham moved to Los Angeles to work in postproduction management on Disney’s Tinkerbell and the Legend of the Neverbeast. Although he began his career in animation management, Meacham’s affinity for storytelling drove him to spend spare time working on his own live-action shorts.
In 2015, Meacham was hired as a production coordinator on DreamWorks’ Trolls. After completing his directorial debut in To: Gerard, Meacham has had the ability to work creatively on various other DreamWorks’ projects—moving him into the role of storyboard artist on the upcoming The Croods 2. He continues to explore stories that observe how unexpected moments in our lives can lead to unimaginable gifts.
