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.


Convincing Clooney is the way to go

Alec Cartio is a talented director who shoots music videos and Sulo Williams is a gifted actor who hasn’t gotten his big break and is frustratedSo they decided to make a movie.Welcome to the Gollywood dreamAfter seeing their very charming film which is the collaboration of 2 good friends  working together to produce their first feature with  a great soundtrack, I met with Alec and I created this dialogue which may have occurred but the result is “Convincing Clooney” the filmExterior Day:Peets Coffee in Santa Monica(Screenwriters and producers meet there and the ideas will be pouring in)Dialogue:Sulo, I know that you are an actor and struggling but have you ever written a script?No,but I was an English major and writer,Neil Simon says write what you know and I will use my own experiences.Hey, remember when Naomi Watts did that short film,Ellie Parker which was a day in the life of an actor and director David Lynch viewed it and cast her in the film , Mulholland Drive and the rest is historyWait a minute!We need a catchy titleWho is the most charismatic actor who everyone loves on the red carpet and is charming?Could he be Italian?Yes, but Marcello Mastroinni is no longer around.What about Pacino or DeNiro?Oscar winners but do they like the red carpet?I have in mind a darling of Hollywood and the other night I met Oscar winner George Clooney at a screening of Michael Clayton.Maybe we convince him?Well we can try and perhaps he will allow us to use his name like in the film, Being John Malkovich.Yes but John was in the filmWell it sounds great if he loves the idea and perhaps lends us his name for the film title and maybe he does a cameo.I love itWe can put all over friends in the film and we won’t have to pay them much moneyWell my manager really wants us to bring in casting director, Neely Gurman.Our emotional soundtrack will lure the most gorgeous actresses because I need a love interest and we must meet cute and shoot this film around Los Angeles and Hollywood as the backdropSo we are cool on all these pointsThanks broI love you man
