Tom O’Brien is an award winning independent filmmaker and acting teacher. Tom’s first

feature that he wrote and directed and starred in, Fairhaven, which also starred Chris

Messina (Mindy Project, Newsroom), Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story) and Rich

Sommer (Mad Men) premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival where it was bought for

distribution. Fairhaven was released theatrically and on VOD in 2013. It was a critics

pick in the New York Times where Stephen Holden gave it a rave review, saying:

“There isn’t a dishonest moment in Fairhaven, Tom O’Brien’s piercing, wistful tale of

three longtime buddies….A beautifully acted,directed and edited slice of New England


Tom’s second feature film, Manhattan Romance, was recently released in theaters and on VOD and it is currently on Netflix worldwide. It stars Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice, Fantastic Beasts), Caitlin FitzGerald (Masters of Sex) and Gaby Hoffmann (Transparent, Girls).

Tom’s critically acclaimed web series, OM City, which he co-created with his wife and writing partner Jessie Barr, was a critics pick in the New York Times and featured in USA Today’s “Web to Watch” and voted “Best Web Series of 2015″ by OM City will be featured next month at the 2016 TriBeca Film festival. Tom also continues to develop feature films with his longtime friend and collaborator Chris Messina. 

Tom not only gives practical honest feedback on scene work but also inspiring advice on creating your own work in the business.
