Director Biography

Award-winning writer, producer, director Stanley B. Gill for over three decades has worked in Hollywood and Hollywood South behind the camera and in post-production – telling stories.

Mr. Gill has run several industry companies and divisions whose clients have included all the major film and television studios: The Walt Disney Studios, NBCUniversal, Twentieth Century Fox, Sony Pictures, Warner Bros., Paramount Pictures, DreamWorks SKG, ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and many, many more independents.

Raised in New Orleans, he brings his creative talents and business development skills to bear on the film, television, music, and stage communities in Hollywood South, with one mission — to help make Hollywood South THE contender.

Mr. Gill has leveraged his entrepreneurial background, skills and experience as a producer to launch an Internet start-up — The HollywoodSouth Blog — while developing his own film, television and multimedia projects.

“I’ve always dreamed of producing in Louisiana while strategically leveraging my contacts in the Los Angeles Hollywood community.” – Stanley B. Gill

As Local Producer for the 48 Hour Film Project in 2007, he “Singlehandedly gave the New Orleans indie film community a collective voice overnight.” Mr. Gill spearheaded an international film competition in the post-Katrina New Orleans environment to bring back the disenfranchised independent filmmaking community to one of the United States’ largest film and television production states.

“I have had the honor of working with such Hollywood titans as Orson Welles and John Huston, in the early stages of my career. Our paths crossed while working on various projects. I was too young and naive to know I 'wasn’t supposed to speak with them.' So, I spent countless hours just listening to their ‘what drives them’ stories. I shall never forget my fortuitous opportunities to be blessed by their presence. Their legacies live on in cinematic history.” – Stanley B. Gill

Hanging his own shingle as an independent producer, New Orleans Moving Pictures Co. was born. Mr. Gill is currently developing several film, television and multimedia projects, to be exclusively produced in Louisiana utilizing the talents of Hollywood South. He is also a proud United States Navy veteran.

This short film was originally produced for The Producers Guild of America Weekend Shorts Challenge 2013 in honor of the late great producer Laura Ziskin. Our team had just 51 hours to write, shoot and deliver a 3-5 minute short. We did. With 7 minutes to spare. Can you say 'pressure?'

The current version is a longer film festival circuit version. Enjoy!
