David Patrick Wilson – Writer/Director/ Producer/Actor

After attending Columbia University in NYC, Mr. Wilson studied acting and theater arts at the famed Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theater from which he graduated in 1971. His craft was forged under the tutelage of legendary acting teacher, Sanford Meisner. 

David’s work in the entertainment industry spans more than four decades. During this time, he has worked at every level and in virtually every capacity of the industry on more than 100 productions on live stage, in film, television and music. He has acted, written, recorded, produced and directed both in the US and abroad. 

He began his writing career as an apprentice in the CBS-TV young writer’s program under Sam Rolfe and Fred Freiberger at Lorimar Productions (Dallas, Knots Landing, Falcon Crest, etc.) writing for the critically acclaimed, but short-lived Ron Liebman series, Kaz.

After co-starring in the cult classic, “Eddie and the Cruisers,” he traveled to Sweden for a well deserved vacation.  But, his sojourn was cut short by an opportunity to work there. He wrote, produced, directed and starred in the international hit musical cabaret, End of the Rainbow followed by, Monkey Business; In the Jungle. He subsequently wrote the original story,  “Tale of the Tired Gun” that became the basis for the Clint Eastwood film,  “The Unforgiven.”. He later wrote the first draft script of Stanley Kubrick’s last film,“Eyes Wide Shut” (originally titled, Crimes of Punishment) that was produced by and starred Tom Cruise.

Author of the original marketing plan for the mega-hit, “Blair Witch Project,”he and his R&D partner, world renowned research specialist Dr. Daniel Acuff, widely considered the foremost authority on youth marketing, continue to develop new methods and models for the marketing and merchandising of films, TV, stage and related products, goods and services. They have been engaged in this work for more than 20 years. Their company is Film-Rx Partners.

A principal owner of Willy-Gilly Productions, Inc. with his wife, Nan Gill-Wilson, they are completing the final touches on the campaign for their first feature film release, “COLLAR”. They have initiated a full training program for actors, writers and directors (Acting Anyone Academy) and they are working with local theater companies to train technical and behind the scenes talent to support the growth of the entertainment industry in New York’s Hudson Valley.

They are also the driving force behind reestablishing the area as a pre-eminent locale for developing, producing and distributing independent films, TV and stage productions.

His other credits include: “The Bronx Zoo” (series),  “Unspeakable Acts”, “Wiseguy”, “Magnum P.I”, “Chips”, “Almost Summer”, “Hometown, USA”, “Gray Lady Down”,  “Audrey Rose”, “I Love You, Perfect”, “Coins in the Fountain”, “Gangster Chronicles”, “Studs Lonigan”, “The Inside Man”, “Kojak”, “Young Riders”, “A Streetcar Named Desire”, “Look Back in Anger”, “It’s a Bird… It’s a Plane… It’s Superman!”, “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”, “Status Quo Vadis” and “Swing”… to name a few.
