Martin Scorsese Masterclass in Cannes services and offers


Ron Gilbert

I am now living in the heart of the film industry and have been involved in the film and theates industry for almost 50 years.I started out in New York City which was where the acting scene at the Actors Studio (I am a lifetime member) included Robert DeNiro,Dustin Hoffman ,Al Pacino,Robert Duval and other name actors like Martin Landau ,Rod Steiger,Shelley Winters,Paul Newman,Ben Gazzara and the list goes on. That was then and the picture has changed. A stage play in New York names a name Hollywood actor to make a profit. The independent film scene has also changed. Steven Soderbergh commented on that recently at the San Francisco International Film Festival and major companies have taken over the studios.

I still work as an actor in commercials,TV and mostly independent films. I ahve worked with the major directors like Francis Ford Coppola,Sydney Lumet, and  Bryan Singer whom I met on his first feature and the relationship is same even now.

Currently I can be seen on reruns,commercials,short films and indie films.

We are currently shooting this web series

I have 2 award winning  films on the festival circuit American Bred and Courier X

In addition as a member of the Actors Studio I have taught at Strasberg Institute and Theatre of Arts and created 2 acting academies in Italy and have done workshops in London and other cities.the I have been a judge on many film festivals and worked with Independent Film Projects West as a producer on the feature film program and the Spirit Awards.


Bitter Feast is a Happy Meal

Bitter Feast is aHappy Meal

The film “Bitter Feast” which premiered at Los Angeles FilmFestival is a collaborative effort by Indie filmmakers who combined talent tomake a film which was shot in 14 days. The production values along withperformances by actors James LeGros. Joshua Leonard , Amy Seimetz areoutstanding and of course Mario Batali adds to the recipe.Cinematographer,Michael McDonough, creates images on two Canon 5 D Mark II SR cameras withmost of the film shot on available light in the woods.Productionmanager/producer Brent Kunkle along with producer Larry Fessenden knows how toget the most bang for your buck. We are not going into budget here but we areexploring the excellent workmanship of an outstanding team effort on a filmwhich outshines those extravagant star studded higher budget films. Studiosshould learn from them. Director/writer Joe Maggio had never done a horror/thrillerbefore. His script was hatched after he read a Frank Bruni review of GordonRamsay’s New York City restaurant,"LondonHotel” and from that his imagination flourished. They faced many challengersbut they fun which is what filmmaking should be about. A party which producesthe best results on the screen. Just a reminder to be very careful when you badmouth a restaurant and particularly,the chef.
