WHAT PEOPLE SAY

"The first time I worked with Salvatore was for my audition for Bad Blood which I booked from that tape, and there were things we tried out in that audition session that stuck with me, that I used until my last day on set. The atmosphere Salvatore creates in the room is of passion and excitement for the role and project you're going in for. Because of his approach, when I leave the room I often not only feel confident in the work, but observe I experienced joy doing it, and that for me is what this is all about."​
