SVA Film & Animation
FACULTY: Stella Pulo

Performer, Writer

I am totally committed to my life as an artist, and to lending my life to my art and to my teaching at SVA. I believe that when all else fails, Art comes to the rescue. I believe in taking risks, being fearless and accepting nothing but the best. Okay can’t be good enough. Only excellence must be good enough.

With other jobs and professions, people can often choose what they do. For artists, the work chooses us. We must want to do our work more than anything else in the world and we must be prepared to be truthful, exposing the good, the bad and the ugly.

I am originally from Australia, and have lived and worked in the United States since 1997. I have been cast in lead roles in theater, cabaret, film and television, throughout Australia and in New York, Paris, Tokyo, London, Edinburgh and Malta.

My latest project is Shrimp Shells in My Cleavage: Travel Tales from an Aussie Actress on the Run, which I am currently adapting for theater and television.
