WELCOME TO OUR NEW WEBSITE!!!!

New Year — New Web Site!

Welcome to our newly designed web site!  We’re so proud of it as it better represents who we are and what we do.  Good work stems from the amazing team behind it.   While the design of the website was born from our collective vision of how best to project BreakThrough, Dana and Brian Lockhart were instrumental in collecting those ideas and having them perform as we like to think we do; quickly, efficiently and beautifully. Thank you to you both.

Thank you Cliff Vick for your support, assistance and friendship.

We are looking forward to 2014 but not without a re-cap of 2013!

2013 was a turning point for BreakThrough.  We kicked off the year with the addition of Johanna Tacadena as partner.  Johanna took off running and quickly put her fingerprint on our casting calls and submissions.  Our testimonials reflect Johanna’s impact on how we do business.  Because she is a working actor, she is a constant resource to actors on how to improve their tools, craft, and ultimately book the job!

We had an incredible summer with the honor of working on 2 indie films:  COLD IN JULY and HITS

Thank you to Amy Hutchings for the partnership on COLD IN JULY.  Because of your generosity and trust, we had an experience of a lifetime and met incredible people.

To Jim Mickle:  An amazing, hands-on director that we absolutely loved working with.  You have our un-ending support with COLD IN JULY and all future projects.

To the COLD IN JULY production team:  Thank you for showing us what a tight, efficient team looks like.  The entire production was a master class on so many levels.  Hoping our paths cross again.

During the production of COLD IN JULY, we were called upon to assist with HITS, directed by David Cross.  We reached out to Dana Lockhart for assistance which was another turning point for BreakThrough.  Dana did an incredible job and did it with respect and kindness for everyone – every day.  We quickly realized that we needed Dana on our team permanently.  We offered her partnership and lucky for us, she said YES!  Dana represents our vision.  Do excellent work, have fun doing it and do it with generosity and kindness.   Dana’s skills are limitless:  producer, director, writer, actor and of course casting director — she continues to surprise us every day with her incredible intelligence, insight and outpouring generosity.

Thank you to the HITS production team.  If there is a template on how to make a good movie that includes everyone on set enjoying themselves while trusting that each role of production is performing at their best, well this is the film and these are the people who make it happen.  Congratulations on being tapped for Sundance, it is well-deserved!

Thanks to the Screen Actors Guild

LIKE A DRUM/Guy Sebastian music video production team, thank you. A perfect example of how a production can benefit by filming in the Hudson Valley.  Middletown, NY proved to be a most accommodating city towards production.  Mayor Joe DeStefano and Maria Bruni jumped into action to provide the shoot access and ease of filming as did Jennifer D’Andrea of the Orange County Arts Council/Orange County NY Film Office.  The video is beautiful as a result.  Guy Sebastian will be playing at the Sundance ASCAP Music Café to perfectly complement all of our 2013 ventures.
