Guy Gallo saw success early when Under the Volcano, his Masters project and a 1986 major feature film was produced. Since then, he's written over a dozen feature screenplays, and had four others produced. His most recent screenplay, The Last Christmas, is currently going into pre-production. He has also taught advanced screenwriting for twenty years at the graduate Film Division of Columbia University's School of the Arts. He's also taught drama at Princeton and New York University. He counts among his students James Mangold (Girl Interrupted, 3:10 to Yuma, Walk the Line), Greg Mottola (Superbad, Adventureland), Jeannine Dominy (Dangerous Beauty), Christopher Zalla (Sundance Grand Jury 2007 for Sangre di mi sangre), and Patrick McGrath (The Grotesque, Spider).
