TESTIMONIALS

  • “Working with Robert could not have been any more of a pleasure. He is super dedicated, unendingly hard working and truly collaborative. I would not hesitate to embark on another adventure with Robert.” - William Chartoff, Producer (ROCKY BALBOA, CREED, CREED2)

  • “Robert Bruzio is a talented, collaborative writer with an agile, curious mind as well as a kind, ethical human being.    Anyone would be lucky to work with him.  Robert is an oasis of calm professionalism in the midst of an often challenging business.” - Lynn Hendee, Producer (ENDERS GAME)

  • “She had tears in her eyes and was like, ‘This is so good and I have to do this,’” - Actor/Producer Joe Manganiello on Sofia Vergara reading STANO screenplay.

  • “When I first read Robert Bruzio’s lovely screenplay “Stano” I knew he’d found an unusually poignant story to tell and had crafted a fine work of screenwriting. But I wasn’t prepared for Robert’s great willingness to collaborate with the creative team to take the script to the next level and turn it into a finished movie that we could all be immensely proud of. His ability to put the movie first, beyond any ego or anything else, was a refreshing and admirable trait to find in a writer—and I can say that because I’m a writer! As they used to say, he’s ‘the real stuff’.” - Academy Award Nominated Director, Raymond DeFelitta
