Gluck began his career at Dreamworks Animation where he was the studio's first story trainee, focusing on the film The Prince of Egypt. Shortly after, he was recruited by Walt Disney Animation Studios, where he worked as a storyboard artist on animated feature films. He directed the CGI animated theatrical film, Alpha and Omega.[1]
