Part of Gubler’s love for storytelling has now extended into directing. Along with multiple episodes of Criminal Minds, he also directed, edited and co-produced the music video for “Don’t Shoot Me Santa” for the band The Killers. “I love directing. To me, I really feel most like myself, or that I’m doing what I’m supposed to be doing if I’m directing or acting in comedies or telling ghost stories. Those are when I feel I am doing exactly what I should be in that moment. I’m really proud of everything I’ve done as a director. Every episode I’ve directed on Criminal Minds I think is flawless. [Laughs] I’m like the Kanye West of directors. I just know it, I know it! They’re great! And I can’t wait to make more videos and direct more stuff,” he explained in a 2015 interview.
