Introduce Yourself : Producer, Director, Screenwriter, Actor and Film Studio Co-owner by Eric Ross Gilliatt

Eric Ross Gilliatt

Producer, Director, Screenwriter, Actor and Film Studio Co-owner

Welcome to all the newbies and hello to all the standing members!

I have been a member of S32 for quite some time and you can find out more details about my work in the craft on my profile page here. 30 years in the craft now as an actor/producer/screenwriter, 20 of it on stage and in television, 10 of it in film making. Pinnacle success came this year with my latest film where I have the male leading role, the highly critically acclaimed ANNA, premiering at the Cannes 72 Film Festival in competition for the Palm d'Or. My film studio continues to work on the production financing for a fantastic four film slate we hope to bring to screen starting late this year, or next.

Good luck to all the beginners here...remember, if you are an actor, the legendary acting master teacher, Sanford Meisner, said, "it takes 20 years to become a master of the craft." He was right, BTW.

I just watched "Chernobyl" -- wow... what a production. Did you watch it? What did you think, as a (I'm assuming here) a Ukranian?

Libby Fischer Hellman - surprise, I am not Ukrainian...and American living in Kyiv for 13 years...much more open opportunities in the craft for me...I don't fight the nonsense nor prejudices of Hollywood over here...just make movies and enjoy the craft.

Looking for an executive producer

I go by the Pen name of Mr Ben. An author of the novel, ''Maya Initiate 39: The Long Walk To Destiny'', it is being screen-played for a TV episode and feature length movie. Though there is an apparent interest by a production company based in India, we are (the screenwriter, J Carlos Films and me) looking for an executive producer that will take on the project.

See below the synopsis

Maya: Initiate 39 is an adult work-piece that explores the ordeals of Maya Isaacs. An over-protected single child, a victim of a broken home, Maya was raised single-handedly by a man whom she knew as her father, Samuel. He had divorced his wife, Cynthia, years ago on grounds of infidelity before Maya turned three years old. Growing up in Durban was a heady mixture of good, bad and ugly for Maya.
