Galland’s previous films include Alter Egos and Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Undead. A prolific song writer, his songs have been featured in such films as Day Of The Dead, 21, Lena Dunham’s Tiny Furniture, and HBO’s The Neistat Brothers. He’s managed by Dan Farah.

Shai made his feature directorial debut with The Frontier, a 1970’s-era film noir about a young woman on the run from the law who robs a gang of robbers. The Frontier also screened at SXSW in March.
