Allen Gardner

Allen C. Gardner has always loved storytelling and began writing, acting, and staging little plays at a very early age. He has acted in numerous commercials, shorts, sketches, films, web series, pilots, and plays (which include CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF and ALL MY SONS), and he’s also written and directed the plays WE GOT LUCKY, DUDES DO STUFF, and (alongside his good buddy Jeremy Palmer) GONNABES. 

In addition to being an actor, playwright, and stage director, Allen writes, directs, produces, and edits independent feature films. In high school, he formed the still thriving Memphis-based film production company Old School Pictures with Brad Ellis, Matt Weatherly, and Mark Norris, and they began shooting sketches, shorts, and features right away. After moving to Los Angeles, he formed the company Open Dialogue Productions with his close friend Gabe Arredondo. Three of his movies (BEING AWESOME, the film version of WE GOT LUCKY, and BAD, BAD MEN) are currently available on multiple platforms, including Amazon. He has two more films that are about to be released, SAVE YOURSELF and COLD FEET. To learn more, visit 

Allen is now in various stages of pre-production on the following films: the comedy/fantasy/drama THE LAST ASSHOLE, the country music-fueled drama BREAKER BREAKER, the dramatic serial killer thriller BURN IT DOWN, the horror/thriller SOLD, the cops-and-robbers comedy FRENEMY FIRE, and the dating app-themed satirical drama DATA DATE SOUL MATE. He looks forward to returning to the stage as soon as possible.
