With a successful background in the London’s, New York’s and Hong Kong’s stock exchanges, Gareth Wiley has quickly left a mark in the contemporary film business by his now long collaboration with American film legend Woody Allen, having produced the first films of the strain of European-located productions that revived Allen’s career, with commercial and critical successes such as Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008), for which he was awarded a Golden Globe; Scoop (2006) and Match Point (2005).
Recently, Gareth has also spent a great deal of time working alongside one of Britain’s most talented upcoming filmmakers: David Leon, in films such as Orthodox (2015) and the recently announced Driven. Gareth has also worked with documentary film star Alex Gibney in Magic Trip: Ken Kesey´s search for a kool place (2011).
Alongside his production work, he has spent years developing Screen Advantage, an online production tool created to assist producers in the financing phase of film projects. This tool has proven to be incredibly useful for independent filmmakers who often find the financing stage difficult to grasp.
