Representing Michael Anton

The Great American Movie Hustle

Madcap Comedy from Michael Anton


Indie feature The Great American Movie Hustle follows director Michael Anton and actor Michael Monsour as they attempt to create a cinematic epic about making a cinematic epic.


Along the way, the duo encounters several twists and turns that mirror common production challenges filmmakers face today.


Produced by Wonder Lab Films and directed by Michael Anton, the parody is presented in a mockumentary format rife with old-school humour.


To achieve a cinematic aesthetic with the film, Anton used AJA CION production cameras and kept a strong visual feel to the fore.


Michael Anton is writer/director of Bad Trip, a contemporary drug-fuelled thriller shot in the US and Germany, starring Branko Tomovic (24, Homeland, Fury).


Wonder Lab Films is a production company, owned by Michael Anton, with the mission to create quality productions with high standards of creative content and visual excellence.


The company is currently developing movie projects including Tesla, Apocalypse Radio and Mister Good. Michael Anton is in post production on The Great American Movie Hustle.
