GIMME SHELTER

RONALD KRAUSS (Writer, Producer and Director) is a filmmaker on the rise. He recently wrote, produced and directed Amexica, an unforgettable story set in the underworld of human trafficking, starring AnnaLynne McCord and Joseph Ferrante. Krauss worked very closely with several anti-human trafficking organizations to create an accurate, honest portrayal and raise awareness in the fight against this global issue. Since its debut in 2010, Amexica has played to audiences worldwide as an official selection in more than 20 film festivals, with several "Best of Fest" awards under its belt.

Previously, Krauss wrote and produced the short film Saving Angelo (2007), starring Kevin Bacon; the feature Alien Hunter (2003), with James Spader; and Rave (2000), his first feature film. Rave received critical acclaim and earned "Best Picture" and "Audience Choice" awards at several major film festivals.

For television, Krauss wrote, produced and directed "Chicken Soup for the Soul" (1999), a series based on the bestselling books. This distinguished drama starred Martin Sheen, Julie Hagerty, Ed Asner, Charles Durning and many other notable actors. It aired for two seasons on the NBC/PAX Television Network.

After getting his degree in architecture and design, Krauss moved to Los Angeles to pursue filmmaking. His first serious brush with Hollywood was meeting Roger Corman and being hired to work in the art department of Corman's legendary Venice Beach studios. For two years, Krauss worked his way through each department of the Corman studios to learn every aspect of moviemaking.

Krauss went on to direct countless music video and commercial productions but it was Puppies for Sale (1998), his first short film, which drew critical and international acclaim. The film, starring Academy Award-winner Jack Lemmon, won "Best Short Film" at more than 20 film festivals worldwide, including Giffoni Film Festival, Berlin International, Rimouski International, Aspen Film Festival, Palm Springs and the Heartland Film Festival. Puppies also received the honor of being exhibited at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
