ARTHUR GORSON
Producer

Arthur Gorson is a native of New York, where he established a career in music, film and concert production. His photographic work with musical artists is widely known, (his photos of Bob Marley were featured in the 2012 film "Marley"). He was lured to Los Angeles to take a position as producer for Dreamstreet, Inc., with offices at Universal and Paramount Studios. He developed feature film projects with Tony Scott and Taylor Hackford.

Among his feature film credits as producer are: “Cronos” by Guellermo Del Toro; “Better Watch Out” by Monte Hellman; and “Cabeza de Vaca” by Nicolas Echevarria. He received an Executive Producer credit on Timur Bekmambetov’s 2005 landmark fantasy film “Night Watch"; a producer credit for his role in Perry Henzell’s 2006 feature “No Place Like Home"; and consulting producer credit on Monte Hellman's "Road to Nowhere" (winner Golden Lion for Mr Hellman's body of work at the 2010 Venice Film Festval).  The short film "Roots of Reggae," produced by Gorson and Wayne Jobson, had its US premiere at the Palm Beach Film Festival. Mr. Gorson currently has several feature projects in advanced development including: "Curse of the Golden Idol" written by Dickie Jobson ("Countryman")  and Michael Thomas ("The Devil's Double", "Scandal", "The Hunger", "Backbeat", "Ladyhawke", "B. Monkey", etc.) for production on locations in Jamaica and London.

Adding short-form production to his portfolio in the late 1990’s, Mr. Gorson enjoyed the fast pace, rapid gratification, and creative demands of Commercials ( at first teaming with Academy Award winning cinematographer Guillermo Navarro.) High-end rock videos were soon to follow.  An eye for talent resulted in production work with young directors such as Zack Snyder. A lucky meeting with director Dean Karr led to Marilyn Manson’s “Sweet Dreams” and an ongoing run of challenging and cutting edge videos.  After production stints at RSA (Ridley Scott and Associates) and A Band Apart, he became a founding partner and producer at The Mine, LLC, (2000 – until mid-2006) where he supervised broadcast commercial, music video, and film production. He is currently (2006 - present) President and Head of Production at Wild Indigo, LLC.

His work has received international recognition, including: MuchMusic Award (Canada) for “Video of the Year”; Saturn Award; VMA/MTV Awards; Billboard Awards; MVPA Awards; MTV Europe; Kodak Music Award. He is the recipient of multiple RIAA gold and platinum records, as well as the BVA (British Video Association) award for DVD sales.

Combining his film and music expertise, Mr. Gorson has produced a series of top selling long-form DVDs, featuring live concert and featurette material.
