With a keen eye and unending mastery John Pallotta vision’s the actor inside of you and like a craftsman, he pulls that vision into reality. As an acting teacher, he is a master of the human condition. He sees our potential as human beings and teaches his students to free their true nature through acting.
John Pallotta actors are given opportunities they won’t find in any other acting class, including intensive camera work and on-set, on-location study, where students get a chance to explore all facets of film work, from lighting, sound, location scouting and directing to working with each other on camera on a professional set. You put all this together and the result, we’ve found, is students coming out of our studio more prepared for not just the business, but life in general.

With SOME KIND OF HEAVEN, first-time feature director Lance Oppenheim cracks the manicured facade of The Villages, America’s largest retirement community – a massive, self-contained utopia located in Central Florida. Behind the gates of this palm tree-lined fantasyland, SOME KIND OF HEAVEN invests in the dreams and desires of a small group of Villages residents – and one interloper – who are unable to find happiness within the community’s pre-packaged paradise. With strikingly composed cinematography, this candy-colored documentary offers a tender and surreal look at the never-ending quest for finding meaning and love in life’s final act.

Hitler used cinema as a
Hitler used cinema as a propaganda machine, portraying Jews as a collective threat to humanity and then spreading these falsehoods throughout Germany. In response, some of Hollywood’s top, Academy Award-winning filmmakers (William Wyler, Billy Wilder & more) decided to make documentaries of their own, films that would expose the regime’s true atrocities. This meticulously crafted WWII documentary reminds us of just how powerful a tool cinema can be and that whoever holds the camera matters.
HOLLYWOOD AND WORLD WAR II will premiere the week of International Holocaust Remembrance Day beginning Monday, January 25, 7 PM EST and will stream for 48 hours.
