Al Bravo Studios
Al Bravo Studios is a company that has evolved over the years just as its dedication to independent filmmaking has. It all started in 2005, when Al Bravo partnered up with Bill Tyus and Paul Foster to form Skyline Films Inc., an independent production company. In the summer of 2005, shooting for their first film, The Wailer began. The following year produced 3 more films (including a sequel to their first hit) and a rise in credibility for the newborn company.
In 2007, Al was hired to produce Gurdian, a film with a great cast of up-and-comers like Christa Campbell (Alien vs. Alien), Shalim Ortiz (Heroes), and Jack Donner (Invincible). Later that year, Skyline became Al Bravo Studios and partnered with Genext Films to produce both a TV pilot and a film directed by Al entitled A Day at the Bank. Armando Araiza, Luis Gatica and the legendary star Armando Silvestre starred in this comedy filled with drama and action.
In 2013, ABS patterned up with Chemical Mind Studios to work on a series of new film projects, including 2 Bedrooms 1 Bath, starring Michele Hicks and Andrew Walker and featuring Eric Roberts (The Expendables, The Dark Knight) and Costas Mandylor (Saw series). Al continues on his path towards producing quality products and opening doors for talented filmmakers from all different backgrounds and levels of experience, as each new success leads to greater opportunities.
Al Bravo began his career like any other aspiring actor trying to make it big in the industry. Due to his Mexican heritage, actual roles were hard to come by, but he soon found that he had a knack for learning the business. The most formative opportunity for him came in 1996 as a Production Assistant on the set of “The Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers”. This sparked a curiosity in Al that helped him realize his potential to make his own films. In 2005 he formed Skyline Films, Inc. and began a career in his own independent production company.
In 2007, Skyline Films became Al Bravo Studios. The goal of this endeavor was still the same, but with more people working together to make better quality projects. Al continues on his path towards producing quality products and opening doors for talented filmmakers from all different backgrounds and levels of expertise as each new success leads to greater opportunities.
