For 20 years Robert Orlando has brought his cinematic vision to the screen, beginning with his 1988 mesmerizing film "See Her Run," which represented the School of Visual Arts and New York University at the Tel Aviv Film festival. For several years after, he worked as a freelance editor, cinematographer and director in New York City, completing his first documentary "La Famiglia" and eventually starting Nexus Media, writing, directing and editing spots for clients like Merrill Lynch and Harley Davidson.<br /> <br /> As a screenwriter, Orlando's many finished scripts included "The Road," later featured in William J. Phillips' Writing Short Scripts. In 2001, Orlando wrote and directed his debut feature "Moment In Time," winning several awards and earning him a chance to work as a writer and editor on the black comedy Choose Life with Peter Dobson and other notables. He has also adapted the works of writers like Mark Helprin, Jonathan Lethem and Charles Ardai.<br /> <br /> As a response to the controversy over Mel Gibson’s "The Passion," in 2005, Orlando launched his own controversial documentary "Apostle Paul: A Polite Bribe" a groundbreaking film (and book) that would combine his filmmaking with his life long study of the Apostle Paul and early Christianity. After 8 years of research, it was released with Cinedigm on DVD April 15th, 2014. <br /> <br /> He is currently working on a documentary Silence Patton that investigates how the "silencing" of George S. Patton prolonged World War 2, allowed a start to the Cold War, and what role his curious death Dec 21st 1945, might have played in the politics of post war Europe.<br /> <br /> Orlando continues to write scripts including one on Apostle Paul, The Coming Kingdom, and is developing his war epic, "The Road to Valor," that explores the famous massacre of Teutoburg, leading to the fall of Rome. He hopes to launch his Supernatural Thriller, to be shot in NYC 2015. <br /> <br /> Orlando, born and raised in New York, lives with his family in Princeton, N.J, but travels often to LA.
