Gilles Nuytens [Pronounce:
] is a multi-talented artist, possessing a keen passion
for cinema. His career especially encompasses writing &
acting. He is a writer with a background in comic-strips,
scriptwriting, photo and computer graphics.
With a passionate and curious nature, Gilles
has spent his life observing the world around him, allowing
him to develop a critic sense and a vision of the world
often misunderstood by others. From an early age, he showed
interest in art, especially by creating comic strips. He
made-up hare-brained worlds where his characters evolved,
and this allowed him to develop his creative imagination.
His teachers noticed he had some potential and they made
him pass a class!
By age 18, he starts to study comic strips
at Institut St Luc in Brussels, and this leds him to deepen
his artistic knowledge through scriptwriting, photography
and illustration. He bought his first computer and despite
his inexperienced skills with these machines, he decided
to pursue his studies with web-design classes. It was a
good choice. He ended up winning the first prize in a contest,
and then went on to be hired by a web-design company to
not only design websites, but also train adults and kids.
As a teenager, Gilles’ dream was
to become an actor. To be able to come closer to his passion,
he creates a website, « The
Scifi World » where he publishes all his artwork
related to science-fiction. He decides to go further by
contacting movie business people, actors and directors.
He is quickly spotted by influent people in the business
and they ask him to complete different graphic works for
them: actors official websites, convention photos and much
more. He is even invited on Stargate SG-1
and Stargate Atlantis sets in Canada!
One of Gilles' all time dream was to become
an actor, and after having worked as a graphic artist for
many years, he finally decided to start an acting career.
In 2012, he started theatre classes at an academy in Brussels
in parallel with an acting studio. After many small parts
in movies, he got more interesting jobs in some short movies
such « Zombie Clash », « Legacy
Of Time » or « Bad Gamble ».
But, with the movie « 8
Hours », which he co-produced and co-wrote, he
finally got a true role in a movie. Then, more interesting
roles came up such the role of the mysterious « Casper
» in the French movie « Marc Saint Georges
» and « Doctor Vancopen » in
the webseries « Anatomy of an Antihero ».
Later on, he wanted to deepen his knowledge
of the scriptwriting field. He begins writing different
short stories but the most successfully completed work at
this time is a novel called PASTA
WARS a spoof inspired by Star Wars and the pastafarianism.
