ANTONIO SAILLANT: Chief Executive Officer And Director
Antonio Saillant worked on high level filmmaker’s projects, learning the nuts and bolts of production. He spent several years shadowing his mentor, Ted Kotcheff and learning from him, not to mention, learning in a highly popular television drama series, Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. Saillant gained knowledge and insight into how the industry works at the studio level. Saillant began his producing career, forming Angel Light Pictures Entertainment Group. The company expresses Antonio’s vision and passion for creating energy efficient movies and television. Saillant says, “The motion picture industry is a vast user of electricity for its sound stages and diesel fuel for its location filming. It is a clear target for energy conservation.” Saillant produced his first film, “Heterosexuals” and then followed up with “The Ascension“ and two short films “Red Right Wrong” and “The Truth Behind the Chords.”
Saillant partnered with Ron Kamen, the Chairman of EarthKind Energy. Kamen works extensively with the government at local, state and federal levels to ensure a favorable climate for solar development. EarthKind Energy is assisting the solar adoption goals of NYS by participating in Governor Cuomo’s NY-Sun Initiative. Both Kamen and Saillant are major supporters of solar technology and its potential to play a major role in creating sustainability. Saillant also lectures on Going Green on the Screen. At a recent speech for Syracuse University’s Earth Week, Rachel May, coordinator of sustainability education: “With his successful film career and deep familiarity with the energy field, Mr. Saillant was an extraordinary resource for students from a wide variety of disciplines.”
Mr. Saillant is furthering the education on green film production with Planet Greenfest, a film festival that his entertainment group is putting together. The films shown at Planet Greenfest will be shorts, 10 minutes long, and are required to be produced using some type of green technology. Antonio says, “I plan to take what I have learned in the energy business and apply it to the entertainment industry in the hopes that my experience will inspire other filmmakers and also our partners, vendors and audience.” Saillant was nominated for the 2014 Gotham Green Awards under the category, Green Initiative.

As an actress and writer I totally recommend taking classes with Antonio Saillant. He taught me the key essentials of the entertainment business and I wish that there were more real people in the industry like him. One of the many things that stuck with me was that acting is like football and before every game the coach and players study their practices, previous games and they also study the opposing team’s plays. They do this so when they go on to the next game they come correct their mistake and possibly win the game. The same goes for acting watch and study movies, television and plays. Study and nurture your craft always.

If you’re ever fortunate enough to have a mentor that is hands on with your endeavors, one who is always available to encourage and support you, and gives sound wisdom and guidance to stretch you outside of your comfort zone, then I’d have to say you just struck gold.
I met my mentor, Antonio Saillant back in 2010 at an actors networking event. At the time I had just finished working with Tyler Perry’s House of Payne and wanted to change gears from acting to writing. At the networking event when I met Antonio I had no expectations except to hear what a guru in the film industry would advise those who were up and coming or at least desired to be.
I told Antonio my delima, about my fear of failing as a writer, and at the time was writing a musical. My inhibitions would not allow me to finish. ” Don’t stop writing, no matter how tough it gets” Antonio responded. And as simple that was those words became a constant, throughout my writing career.
The musical Yahweh on Broadway was a success three years in a row in New York’s Theater District. We were also very fortunate to have Antonio as our guest speaker at my cancer charity for the Breast Cancer Foundation which also showcased the musical. How many mentors really do this!. Amazing.
Later in 2013 I wanted to cross into screenplay writing and again hesitation set in and I called Antonio who not only encouraged and guided me through the process but believed so much in my film that his company Angel Light Pictures and Angel Light Entertainment Group graciously came on board as the affiliate production company.
From 2010 to present Antonio has been my mentor and has helped me market my events, read my written drafts and rendered advice to improve my work, he graphically aided in the press poster of my film and partnered with me on it as consulting producer. If I need anything I know I have a mentor whom I can truly confide.
If you are so fortunate to meet Antonio then you can attest to all the great attributes I have listed and then some.
Thank you Mentor for always believing in me and walking me through the rough patches.
You truly are the best!!!
