Glenis Giles - Producer

Glenis has worked in the New Zealand independent film and television industry since 1988 as a production manager, line producer and producer. Her portfolio of work includes film and television drama, theatrical short films, documentaries, children’s television, commercials and music videos. She has worked extensively in the production of television for youth and produced the highly successful and award winning short films Song of the Siren, Shoes, The Grocer’s Apprentice and Eau de la Vie.

During 2005 Glenis produced Project Q, incorporating QTV – a multi-media 13 part science based television series for children – and Q Careers – the first of a series of DVD's profiling career pathways of scientists in fields as diverse as forensics, agresearch, volcanology and marine biology. Glenis supervised the development of the interactive Q web site with Oktobor Interactive, featuring curriculum-based quizzes and interactive games.

Glenis and her business partner Di Oliver-Zahl developed Project Q over three years and were about to start pre-production of the television series when Di was killed in an accident in February 2005.

"Di was an inspirational and dynamic person. Her death pushed me to follow through with her vision to develop true to life television which answered real questions for young people."

Oliver-Zahl and Giles met working on Bread and Rosesand established OliverGILES Productions in 1994 (Limited 2003). They made numerous theatrical shorts together and formed a great working partnership – Project Q was their passion.

Glenis is an active member of the New Zealand film industry. She currently Chairs the Wellington Fringe Film Festival, having been a board member since its inception seventeen years ago and is a founding member of WIFT Wellington Inc. (Women in Film and Television 1994).
