Gilles Nuytens [Pronounce:
] is a multi-talented artist, possessing a keen passion
for cinema. His career especially encompasses acting. He
is also a writer with a background in comic-strips, scriptwriting
and computer graphics. On the side, Gilles is also an avid
His birth on March 17th, just 2 months before the first
screening of Star Wars, may be interpreted as a sign of
a future passion for cinema and specially science-fiction,
for Star Wars is probably his favourite movie ever (as well
as for many people in the world). This day (Irish National
Day) is also associated with the Leprechaun, a
mythical male creature supposed to bring luck and wealth…
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,
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 the highest
ranked website about “Stargate”,
and they ask him to completely redo their website. And even
more, he is invited on the sets!
Later on, his works attracted the attention of Holly, who
is the representative of many known actors, and that’s
how he started working with her on the websites of her clients,
which makes at this present day more than 20!
He developed an interest for scriptwriting and trains to
deepen his knowledge of the field. He begins writing different
things but the most successfully completed scenario is a
short science fiction film called “Harmless”,
that he co -wrote with his friend Eric. He also tries still
photography and continues to practise it sometimes on various
film projects, but this is more of a hobby than a full time
Gilles decides then to take the bull by horns and to do
what he always wanted to do: become an actor! The
beginning is difficult because they only offer him extra’s
parts, but this allows him to start at the bottom of the
ladder and climb up step by step! He got his first true
role in a web series “CoMik TV”. Later,
he got more small roles in short films such as ”Zombie
Clash”, “Legacy Of Time”
and “Bad Gamble”. But, with
the feature-length film “8 Hours”,
which he co-produced and co wrote the screenplay, he finally
got a true role in a movie.
Now launched, he works to write and direct his own short
