Screenwriter in Residence
School of Communication
- Gilles Wheeler is an adjunct professor of Film and Media Arts. Before selling his first screenplay, he worked for several studio heads and key producers, which gave him a rare insider’s view of the entertainment industry from the executive side. Combined with his film school education, this hands-on experience led to his first sale, an animated feature to Fox. Since that time, he has worked as a screenwriter in both live-action and animation, film and television. To date, Gilles has sold and developed projects at Disney, Dreamworks, Warner Brothers and Fox, as well as mini-majors.
