Anthony Meindl, writer, producer, director, actor's  first feature screenplay, THE WONDER GIRLS, won Grand Prize Winning Feature Screenplay in the Slamdance Film Festival Screenplay Competition 2007. The film is slated for production in January, 2012 in Berlin.?? Anthony's acting class recently was voted best scene study and cold read studio in Los Angeles by Backstage magazine. Meindl’s other filmmaking credits include producing and directing a number of short films. He wrote and directed the award-winning 35-mm short film, READY? OK! which was a Finalist in the Planet Out Short Film Awards in conjunction with the Sundance and Miami Gay & Lesbian Film Festivals. The film was sold to MTV's LOGO Network as part of their "Click List: Best in Short Film Series" and is now on DVD as part of the series FIRST OUT 3. Meindl wrote/directed/produced a TV pilot with actors at his acting studio. It was nominated as "BEST PILOT" at the 2010 Banff World Television Festival. ?The idea has since been expanded into a feature film, called BIRDS OF A FEATHER (with Olympia Dukakis, Bruce Vilanch, Trevor Donovan and Lindsay Hollister and is currently in making the festival rounds). In just one season of producing and directing plays (2003/2004), his first three productions - SWIMMING IN THE SHALLOWS (Best Comedic Direction Nomination by LA Weekly), DOGS BARKING (Best Direction Nomination by LA Weekly), and THE DEAD-EYE BOY (based upon the play by JUNEBUG scribe Angus MacLachlan and named one of the Top 10 Productions in Los Angeles Theatre in 2003) - all earned unanimous critical praise, playing to sold-out audiences across Los Angeles. His first book, AT LEFT BRAIN, TURN RIGHT is scheduled to be released in January, 2012. Stay tuned to Rex Sikes Movie Beat for other great archived interviews, cast and crew listings, events, festivals, premieres, and more at rexsikes.com
