STONESTREET STUDIOS is celebrating 25 years as a New York City based fully operative, multi-purpose, visual motion picture production studio, founded by Alyssa Rallo Bennett & Gary O. Bennett, director/writer/producer team. Stonestreet’s work ranges from award-winning socially speculative feature films such as Rain Without Thunder (Starring Jeff Daniels, Linda Hunt, Steve Zahn) and The Pack aka Smoking Non-Smoking (Luci Arnaz, Elizabeth Moss), to pilots, web series and Micro-Movies released internationally and on Stonestreet’s growing platforms.
Stonestreet has become a known as an incubator of socially conscious, character driven and culturally provocative millennial and generation Y content and talent such as Miles Teller (Whiplash, Divergent, Bleed for This), Ashley Skidmore (Younger), Renee Felice Smith (NCIS), Xosha Roquemore (Mindy Project), Michaela Conlin (Bones), Connor Hines (Local Attraction) and more.
The studios are home to Stonestreet Productions, an independent film production company creating feature films, TV pilots, web series, and short form content and the Stonestreet Conservatory, the exclusive screen acting and production program of New York University Tisch School of the Arts Drama Department.
Stonestreet films explore the passions, eccentricities, politics and humor of character driven, no holds barred stories that seek to entertain and enlighten. The conservatory trains actors, writers, directors in the art of screen acting and filmmaking within the professional environment of an independent film studio, empowering them to become producers of their own work and careers.
