Frank J. Monteleone
Executive Producer and Founder
Frank launched FAF in 2006 just one year after receiving his BFA in Performance Theatre from Marymount Manhattan College. To supplement his acting at the time he provided production and editing services to ESPN, Geffen Records, L'Oreal, Dove Chocolate, Golfsmith and The Global Fund. In 2009, Frank became the SVP of business development at 3DRevolution, securing financing and providing 3D post-production services to Warner Bros and Relativity Media. Now with his focus on project development, Frank has produced the documentary HOTEL AL, which follows the longest working employee of his family-owned hotel in New Orleans: the Hotel Monteleone; the TV pilot AVENUES, which he co-created and starred in; and LOST FLOWERS, which premiered at the Rincon Film Festival and won “Director’s Choice” for Best Short Comedy. Currently, Frank is producing the feature film AMERICAN REJECT written by his wife Kathleen Monteleone. Frank’s ability to assemble teams, secure financing and collaborate with promising artists has turned his post college editing business into a full-fledged producing house.
With a passion for development, Kathleen has spearheaded securing and creating new content and championing new writers and directors. Kathleen proved herself a triple threat on Full Armor’s first feature film, AMERICAN REJECT, serving as writer, co-producer and lead actress. AMERICAN REJECT, a true-ish musical comedy depicting Kathleen’s time on a hit reality singing competition, is currently in post-production. In addition to her feature work, Kathleen served as producer on the short documentary HOTEL AL, premiering on Tubi worldwide Oct. 18, 2019, and the television pilot AVENUES.

Office Manager & Executive Assistant
Zack joined Full Armor after many years in the nonprofit and higher education sector. But, he always loved movies. In fact, he was probably the only person at his high school with subscriptions to Premiere and Entertainment Weekly. Now, he gets to combine his organizational and administrative skills with his (almost) encyclopedic knowledge of movie trivia to support Full Armor’s mission of collaborating with promising new artists, writers and directors on the creation of original, award-winning content.
