Experiencing unexpected challenges and overcoming adversity before and during the pandemonium that struck the world, Michael and Karen Iacobbo, filmmaking husband-and-wife duo, are now back on track, full speed ahead in making films. The couple is eagerly working on projects of 2023 and beyond.

Michael and Karen are thankful to God, and they thank once again their cast and crews on past film projects for contributions of time, energy, skill, and talent, and wish them continuing success in 2023.

Also Michael and Karen thank the talented cast and crew, who in the midst of the maelstrom, created with them a short “Tell Her”, that’s part of a film series and was a selection at a film festival.

In 2021, the Iacobbos created their first music video. They appreciate the opportunity to feature a gifted opera singer and the breathtaking background of nature in Rhode Island. The music video has thus far won several awards.
