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.


Father's Day a film of a different nature

Father’s Day is not a title for a film reflecting on what most of us remember as a special day for dads. What we have is a dark revenge movie going off into the deep crevices, of Grindhouse movies with a the combination of 80s late-night TV and a perverted sense of humor which makes this film something truly unique.
If that is your flavor for film and you are a Troma fan,you will love this movie. How Astron-6 did this film on such a limited budget is mind-blowing.
After the cast stops hamming it up in the beginning it really takes on a spectacular turn.
Of course ,you must have a stomach for blood ,perverted sex , rape and brutality ,but you accept it as the movie pulls you in.Your thoughts would be,”What else can they do which I have never seen before and why am I watching this”.
A well written screenplay by the members of Astron-6, and the key stunts were memorably executed by the actual cast, co-ordinated by Adam Brooks. The talents of Brian Wiacek, Jeremy Gillespie, Sommer Spendlow, Paul Joyce, Bob Wiseman, Nabi, Dan Bern and Adrian Perry, along with many others comprised an excellent soundtrack. Steven Kostanski's horror effects and animation/blue screen work ranged from budgeted to vivid, at appropriate points.



The opening credits were an additional treat that should drop a huge hint for the show you were going to get. Illustrator Jim Rugg plunges you face-first into a wild ride, featuring his gritty designs in the opening title sequence. This film pays homage to director Dario Argento with a comic book feeling.

This is not something you let younger kids see, but naturally, they're going to make sure they see it once they hear about how cool it is. The violence, the language, and the gratuitous nudity are designed specifically to appeal to the twelve-year-old people of the world. You have to see it once just to get the big picture, then a second time to fully enjoy it.

The cast of the troubled teenager / underage male prostitute Twink (Conor Sweeney).,short-fused Detective Stegel (Brent Neale)a kind priest, Father John Sullivan (Matthew Kennedy),Fuchman (Mackenzie Murdock), a vile fiend with a taste for vintage dads, the one-eyed Ahab (Adam Brooks).and Ahab's Stripper sister Chelsea (Amy Groening)are very convincing in their character portrayals.
This winner of the 2011 Toronto After Dark Film Festival Audience Award opens at the Nuarte theatre in West Los Angeles at midnight on February 24.
