Anthony L. Gilardi is mostly known for his world-famous acting studio, Anthony Gilardi Acting Studio, which he founded in 2012. In 2015, he founded the non-profit organization HIPPOLife. HIPPOLife’s mission statement is Healing Through the Arts. He has been coaching and teaching actors since 2009. He made a name for himself as a director in theatre and transitioned to film and television shortly thereafter.
His directing style is comparable to John Cassavetes, Martin Scorsese, and Quentin Tarantino with both dark and light humor and fantastical elements. His films create social awareness and life lessons, “mixing the medicine in with the food” as he puts it.
Anthony is very big on industry diversification which is apparent when hiring his crew and casting his actors.
“I coach artists that are passionate and dedicated to their craft. The Future of Hollywood is right here, right now. It is time for storytellers to lead the next renaissance.”
-- Anthony L. Gilardi
