Keep reading to learn more about Gabriel Grapperon and his newfound success.

His career as a director and a writer

Gabriel Grapperon's career in the film industry began in 2014. The first project that he worked on was a short animated video called 'Locked Up,' and while working on 'Locked Up, participated by being both an animator and a writer. Next, he worked on the television show 'Last Minute Twists,' though he only worked on one episode of the show, titled 'The Last Flight.' Not only did write this episode, but he also directed it. This made 'Last Minute Twists' the first thing he directed during his career.

Most recently, Grapperson has worked on the short animated video, 'Garden Party.' On this project, he's only worked as the director but his influence on the video has been quite powerful. This short video was released in 2017, but it's already his most popular work to date. Grapperon hopes to, and is expected to continue working on short films in the future.


Even though Grapperon has only worked on three unique projects, he's already won eight awards and has been nominated for seven others. So far, all of his awards are for his work on 'Garden Party' and some of these awards include a Paris Courts Devant Best Short Film award, a Nashville Film Festival Best Animated Short award, and a SIGGRAPH Student Prize. All of his award nominations are also for his work on 'Garden Party,' and out of these, his most impressive award nomination is an Oscar 2018 award for Best Animated Short Film. However, this award is still pending. The winner of the award will be announced at the Oscar 2018 ceremony on March 4, 2018. The other nominees for this award are pictured below.

Net worth

As of 2018, Grapperon's net worth is currently unknown and since he's just getting started in the film industry, we do not suspect that he as an especially high net worth at this time. However, as he continues to make more films and earn more awards, we do expect that he will be invited to work on larger projects. As he becomes more famous as a writer or director, we expect that his net worth will become public knowledge.

Social Media

Even though Grapperon is young, he does not seem to have much of a social media presence. He doesn't seem to have a public Instagram account, and the link to his Twitter account does not actually lead to a working Twitter page. Luckily, other people continue to post about Grapperon and his works online. All of the photos in this article are from Instagram posts that were tagged with his name. Hopefully, this will be enough to keep fans occupied until Grapperon gets public social media accounts of his own.
