Based on an extraordinary true story, 'No Parole' follows a brilliant but dysfunctional struggling actor whose life becomes chaos when his con artist mother re-enters his life in need of refuge from the Feds. Though initially reluctant, her skillset might be able to take him further than any acting class ever could.
SAINT VINNE THE MOUTH
In 1970's Alphabet City, a young Latin twink defies his Bible-thumping dad and embraces his inner deity, transforming into a fearsome drag queen. But this destiny goes beyond the stage as he fights demons, disbelievers, and himself to become a full-ass biblical saint!
Working with Carlo is like falling into a riot of bliss. Whether as an actor or content creator, Carlo questions, pushes, provokes, creating worlds, making connections, unearthing backstory and subtext in a way I’ve never encountered before. His methods incite the imagination, forcing you to go deeper and further into the story-world than you ever thought possible. My sessions with Carlo opened up so much story, character, relationship, and subtext, it was necessary to scrap a lot of the old in favor of the newly discovered. More work, sure. But I’m grateful not only for the added depth and meaning but the experience itself. His imagination is a rocket ship and I had to race to keep up. It was an exhaustive but thrilling trip through our imaginary world.

He calls it writing on his feet, and he utilizes improvisation to not only make material that crackles, but to instantaneously create text that is funny, dangerous, provocative, and always unexpected".
