About Garen Daly
Garen is the producer & director of The Orson Welles Complex, his first venture into making movies, but he's not a newbie. He's been in the film business for more years than he cares to admit.
Besides this project he produces the Boston SciFi Film Fest, the oldest genre fest in the country. Additionally he is a programmer/consultant in the industry.
His entertainment roots stretch back 100 years to his opera singing Vaudevillian grandparents. He figures they'd be proud especially when he pontificates on NPR stations or when he occasionally writes for such publications as Yankee Magazine. Soon be seen nationally on Reelz TV's Celebrity Legacies as 'the expert'.
Currently he sits on the Filmmaker's Collaborative board of directors. He has international stature, sort of, as a Board member for (in)famous Museum of Bad Art (MOBA).
In his spare time he sleeps, cooks, writes, gardens and collects ex-wives. His dog makes him laugh, a lot.
