My name is Brando Fermi Crawford and I am a producer, innovator, educator, actor and director based out of Oak Park, IL, with an office in Los Angeles. I am best known for directing, producing, adapting and starring in "Acting for a Cause" , a series of live reads of plays and screenplays for charity starring the likes of Oscar Nominee Florence Pugh, Emmy Nominees Zazie Beatz, Margaret Qualley, and Madeline Brewer, and around 100 other young Hollywood actors. We are currently in partnership with Dolce and Gabbana and amfAR. I am currently working on producing and directing my directorial debut "Rumspringa". I previously served as Executive Producer on "Night Shifts" directed by Finn Wolfhard (Silver Winner at Fantasia Film Fest), and appearing as an actor in "Fine Tuned" by Ron Howard and Brian Grazer as well as the music video for "Make it Stop" by the band Rise Against . My mother Maria Emilia Fermi is the co-owner of the property, is originally from Argentina and is a notable local educator. Together we run The Language and Music School at International Mansion and all net proceeds of any event held here benefit our scholarship fund. Thank you for your support!
