Atomic Focus Entertainment's mission is to create compelling original filmed content. We specialize in both scripted and unscripted projects, using budgets of all sizes.
At Atomic Focus Entertainment we believe in the science of art. This means that creativity requires calculated technique to transform inspired artistic ideas into moving filmed content. Every project, every idea, every new set of circumstances requires an objective and thoughtful approach right alongside the artistic approach. Research, organization, collaboration, and efficient operation are the companions to our technique.
We are continuously producing original concepts and projects of our own to add diversity to the content which is brought to us for development and production. We are proud creators, writers, and artists. Partnering our ingenuity and collaborative sensibilities lends itself to a wealth of high-quality and market ready work.

Tom’s role at Atomic Focus places him firmly in Act Three of a professional show business career that has spanned five decades.
Act One was devoted to acting -- playing leads on Broadway (Grease), Off-Broadway (Livin’ Dolls), on Prime Time TV (Breaking Away) and on daytime TV (As the World Turns), among numerous credits.
Along with more TV acting (Iron Jawed Angels, The Bronx is Burning, Law and Order, Guiding Light), Act Two brought writing into the mix, resulting in script writing gigs for soap operas Another World and As the World Turns, an optioned screenplay (Gift of the Robin’s Nest) and completion of his novel The Client’s Wife, which is currently being adapted for a screenplay.
And now, Act Three has moved Tom behind the camera as a creator, developer, producer, story editor and director for a variety of projects such as Crossovers, Thursday in the Park with the Broadway Show League, Ghost Light, Touch and Go and The Charleston to Charleston Literary Festival.
Tom is excited to continue this work for the ever-expanding roster of Atomic Focus projects.
