GPR’s clients are our sum and substance, part of our company’s DNA. Whether you’re an actor, director or producer, a production company, merchandising company or music group, our clients are deserving of our attention at all times. With your trust and the best possible expression of your brand in mind, GPR serves as not just your publicity agent but as your voice in the crowd.
Wherever the stars shine, GPR is right by their side. In or outside Chicago—pick a city, any city—Danielle Garnier has handled renowned producers, actors and writers at national openings and events, including Stan Lee, John Waters, Jim O’Heir, Chris Blackwell, George Carlin, Harry Belafonte, Danica McKellar, Sandra Bernhard, Fred “The Hammer” Williams, Zindzi-Mandela Hlongwane, Kathy Garver, Amy Acker, Mark Warner, Michael K. Williams, Richard Losse, Bo Svenson and others.
We have a special place in our portfolio for filmmakers—newbies need notice and extra attention, while veterans must still prove themselves with everyone else crowding the platform. Before and after GPR was established, founder Danielle Garnier worked with Jonathan Demme, Aram Rappaport, David Boyle, Matthew Aaron, Maria Finitzo, Kedar Korde, Enzo G. Castellari, Kenji Kamiyama, Mamoru Oshii, Robbie Bryan, Pat Giles, Manny Galan, Matt Pizzolo, Robert Hatch, Satoshi Kon, Christian Alvart, Nick Smith, Uwe Boll and more.

Toy/Video Game Companies:
Toys, comics, and video games can become films, while films can structure a bonanza of merchandising opportunities. Because GPR has been involved with animé and animation, it has enjoyed the opportunity to work with companies like Boom! Studios, Capcom, Dark Horse Comics, Diamond Select Toys, Nuby Tech, Soto Toys, and Udon.
Garnier’s early experience in the music biz dovetailed perfectly with the promotion of musical artists and soundtracks for several film projects: Rachel McCluskey (soundtrack for Disney’s PROM); The Kings (from Toronto, 2008 regional tour); Sam & Ruby and pAt mAcDonald; (Nashville and Wisconsin musicians, respectively, on the soundtrack for Westbound with press and appearances promoting the film in Los Angeles and at various film festivals); and LaTour, American musician, singer-songwriter, and voice-over artist.
