ABOUT

Eden Productions was founded in 1995 by Steven Gillilan in Baltimore Maryland. The company was to be the perfect garden to grow and give life to ideas. It is our belief that it's okay to focus on the darker side of humanity for entertainment sometimes, because understanding evil is knowledge. For Eden Productions, there is no genre that is taboo. We are as comfortable producing faith based content as we are with making a horror film, a thriller, a drama, a film noir, a science fiction, a romantic comedy or a documentary. All cinema is fair game at Eden.

Steven Gillilan
President

Upon graduating Boston University's College of Fine Arts in 1986, Gillilan moved to New York to embark on an acting career. Notable roles include "Jason" on ABC's "One Life to Live" and "Billy" in Rolland Howe's feature "The First Killing Frost". Other acting roles would follow, including Jack/Queen in the World Premiere of Gillilan's play "The Bee" at Art Continent. (Later recast when it premiered at The Duplex in NYC.) Gillilan starred in the theatrical production of his play "Jealous God", which he later re-cast and played a supporting role in when he directed "Jealous God" as a feature film in 1995. Gillilan spent the next 6 years writing scripts, penning a great body of work. In 2001, he returned to filmmaking by writing, directing and producing the thriller "The Fall Before Paradise" which opened to glowing reviews and was released worldwide in 2004.Since then, he has created numerous documentaries and docu-dramas while freelancing as a writer, director and producer.

Ann Gallow
Vice President

Ann Gallow has always had a passion for film, but has not always been involved in the industry. After a serious back injury put an end to her nursing career, Ann decided that it was a perfect time to explore something new. Having substantial time on her hands as well as a longtime love for film she offered to help with the forthcoming project in any way possible. Her role with Eden Productions has expanded throughout the years. Before attending nursing school, Ann majored in Painting at the Maryland Institute College of Art and has served as art director on several projects. Through out her filmmaking history, she has served in a variety of capacities ranging from craft service to associate producer, but her greatest contribution to Eden is her role as casting director.
