Rules of Seconds “the best new play that’s premiered in Los Angeles this year.”

“A PITCH BLACK COMEDY… a contemporary comedy of manners plunged into the savage psychosexual terrain of Neil LaBute.” — Bill Raden, LA Weekly
“SHREWD…TIMELY… the cast is stellar… witty writing… bitter humor and vivid monologues” — Jonas Schwartz, Theater Mania
“SUPERB… an intense, comedy drama, at once horrifying and humorous. The cast is extraordinary, playing it big and rendering vivid, indelible characters.” — Paul Myrvold,Theatre Notes
“DARKLY FUNNY… entertaining throughout, building to an exciting (and violent) climax… Pollono’s script is sharp and funny with quite a few tricks and reveals up its sleeve.” — Erin Conley, On Stage and Screen

I’m over the moon to be selected to attend USC’s Film Production MFA.
I start in Aug 2014 and am looking forward to further exploring directing and creative producing works I feel passionate about. I hope to one day create something on par with Across the Universe, using dance and music to tell a narrative.

Here is the work sample I submitted that helped me get in:
