The DFP is delighted to announce that award-winning producer, director, and cinematographer Peter Gilbert is joining the program as a full-time faculty member. Gilbert began a three-year appointment as a part-time lecturer at Wake Forest last fall and it quickly became evident that he was very much at home at the DFP. The enthusiastic response of both graduate and undergraduate students to his teaching and mentoring and his generous contributions to the overall development of the program led to a full-time offer being extended and accepted.
Gilbert will join Wake as a Professor of Practice and will teach DFP courses in cinematography, entrepreneurship and documentary-to-narrative storytelling. He will also advise 2nd and 3rd year students on their creative projects. I am honored to be a full time member of Wake Forest and the DFP, Gilbert said in reaction to the appointment. This is an opportunity that allows me to engage in and teach storytelling at an incredible institution. I am particularly excited about the opportunity to merge entrepreneurship into curriculum of the DFP. I look forward to helping to raise the visibility of this fantastic program and to help our students continue make wonderful films.
In addition to his DFP duties, Gilbert will continue to teach undergraduate courses in Visual Storytelling and Entrepreneurship in Creative and Liberal Arts.
