Tommy Pallotta is a visionary storyteller who creatively blends technology into filmmaking, animation and interactivity.  His most recent project was transmedia thriller Collapsus, based around the energy crises and peak oil.  In 2006 Tommy produced A Scanner Darkly based on the novel by Philip K. Dick, directed by Richard Linklater and stars Keanu Reeves. Tommy first connected Richard Linklater with animation when he produced the award winning feature Waking Life.

Tommy's penchant for innovation was recognized by Microsoft's Research and Development team when he helmed an interactive project based on Jonathan Lethem's novel Amnesia Moon for the Xbox platform. Tommy also directed the first music video using machinima technology, and a breakthrough rotoscoped video, both for the band Zero 7. Tommy has produced several short animated films that have won numerous awards and screened internationally, including Snack and Drink which resides as part of a permanent collection in the New York Museum of Modern Art.
