THE ROYAL STUNT
An Investigative Art Forgery Documentary
Giampiero Ambrosi is a writer, investigative reporter, and producer of documentary films. He produced The Royal Stunt, a major feature documentary about the Prince Charles Royal Art Collection Scandal at Dumfries House. Based on an almost three year investigation by Ambrosi and Academy Award nominated director, Kief Davidson, the film is due to be released in early 2023 with partners MRC Entertainment. MRC’s films have been nominated for 12 Academy Awards, 11 Golden Globe Awards, and 2 GRAMMY Awards. The studio’s series have been nominated for 94 Emmy Awards and 11 Golden Globe Awards. The current slate includes “Ozark” on Netflix, “The Outsider” on HBO and “The Great” on Hulu.
Giampiero says, “In 2019 art forger, Tony Tetro, showed me three photos he had secretly taken of curious document fragments – an art loan between eccentric purported billionaire, James Stunt and Prince Charles. Three years and a lot of undercover investigation later, we were able to unearth a massive art forgery scandal. Now, we’re almost ready to release our film, The Royal Stunt, with academy award nominated, director Kief Davidson, and partners MRC Entertainment, scored by Marco Beltrami and Dennis Smith. It’s a crazy story and a wild ride. Can’t wait to share more details soon.”
Ambrosi collaborates with director, Kief Davidson, at Decoy Productions, a Los Angeles based film and television production company devoted to creating elevated premium non-fiction and scripted content.
Oak Grove Films is Ambrosi’s documentary production company dedicated to premium, primarily investigative narrative non-fiction. Oak Grove was responsible for the production of The Royal Stunt and has a slate of projects currently in development.
