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.


Muscle Beach Venice Reality Show

As a sports and health writer in addition to my film industry involvement ,I attended the Annual Memorial day Muscle Beach Venice body builder contest which has now added a bikini contest. I was there to support my buddy , body builder Bill Howard ,who kept the tradition alive  in Muscle Beach  Venice .during the lean years and was there back in the day, at the original Santa Monica Muscle Beach which closed in 1959,along with Steve Reeves,Jack LaLanne and other well known muscle men,He was replaced by Joe Wheatley ,at  Muscle Beach Venice and Joe  has done a spectacular job and  has made it into a much bigger event with health product suppliers and many icons in the bodybuilding Industry.On this Memorial day,Joe Weider who is 90 years young, was there with his wife, Betty ,was honored ,as he should be , and he graciously donated more bleacher seats for all the avid fans. I noticed  many filmmakers shooting and I thought it was for news coverage, but to my surprise ,a Muscle Beach reality show is being created by Arthur Seidelman, a director of "Where Muscles were Born" a documentary and "Hercules in New York". I was there to connect on a documentary that Bill Howard wants to do on Muscle Beach Venice. So I will be updating all of you on the upcoming news on the this as I enjoy the sunny days of summer in Santa Monica and Venice Beach
