Have You Seen Harry ? (Trailer)
A short film written and directed by Richard Mazda from The Secret Theatre (an Off-Off-Broadway theatre) which is a buddy style adventure where a group of tweens/teens who are obsessed with Harry Potter hear that Daniel Radcliffe is opening a new ride at Coney Island and set of on an adventure to meet him.
Ghostlight (Trailer)
This horror movie is completely acted by the students of The Secret Theatre Academy's first ever film class. Like all classic horror movies we see the missteps almost immediately as our group of friends discuss the idea of a seance over milkshakes at the diner.
