Antiestático welcome Marco Gentile.

by Andrew MacGregor


Well-travelled filmmaker Marco Gentile has become the latest to join Antiestático for UK and Spanish representation.

The Italian, whose career has taken him from Europe to the United States and elsewhere, was drawn to the company’s de puta madre attitude (loosely translated as “awesome” or, ahem, "the good shit".)

Antiestático, in turn, were impressed by Gentile’s thoughtful and beautifully shot commercial reel, which includes this slow-burning piece for Houston Methodist - one of America’s leading healthcare providers.

His reel also features work for the likes of Mercedes-Benz and Vodafone, whose 2019 'Reality and Fantasy' campaign gave Gentile the chance to deliver bravura set-pieces and eye-grabbing visual effects. Crucially, he injects plenty of heart into this big-budget flight of fancy.

This juggling act caught the attention of Antiestático founder Matías Dumont, who says: “Marco’s work has an international sensibility, combining emotive storytelling with an outstanding cinematic aesthetic. We are immensely excited to have a director of Marco’s pedigree working with our team.”

Gentile is equally proud of his new station: “Antiestático are doing some of the best work out there, “They have an incredibly passionate approach to every aspect of filmmaking and I can’t wait to start this de puta madre adventure together.”

To enlist Marco Gentile for your next project, ring Antiestático's UK representative Kate Elson on 07970 943 464 or email her via kate@agentelson.com.
