Tommy Pallotta is a visionary storyteller who creatively blends technology with filmmaking, animation and interactivity. His penchant for innovation was recognised by Microsoft Research and Development where he helmed an interactive project based on Jonathan Lethem’s novel Amnesia Moon. Pallotta also directed the first machinima music video, In the Waiting Line, and the rotoscoped MTV Breakthrough video Destiny, both for the band Zero 7.
He has produced several short animated films that garnered numerous awards, including Snack and Drink, which is now part of a permanent collection in the New York Museum of Modern Art. Tommy first connected Richard Linklater with animation when he produced the award-winning feature film Waking Life. He followed up with Philip K. Dick’s A Scanner Darkly starring Keanu Reeves and Robert Downey Jr. He then turned to documentary films and directed American Prince. Now he is back with a transmedia thriller, Collapsus: Energy Risk Conspiracy.
