Tom Gliserman is a director/editor living in upstate New York. The Thing on the Doorstep is Gliserman's first feature. For the last 25 years he has been creating award-winning commercials, high-end corporate work and programs for broadcast through his company GreyHouse Productions. His love for strong female characters probably stems from the fact that he has five daughters, an awesome wife and two female felines (yes they're black). Gliserman is thrilled to be showing Doorstep at the festival.
