SAN FRANCISCO — With a heavy heart, Falcon Studios and Raging Stallion Studios has confirmed that  prolific director John Bruno has taken his own life.

Bruno directed 65 movies distributed by Falcon between 2004 and 2010. Of those, 19 were Mustang Studio titles, and 25 were Falcon features, including some of the biggest hits of the decade like "Best Men, Parts 1 & 2," "Fleet Week," "Asylum"  and "Roman’s Holiday."

Born in Michigan in 1967, Bruno was discovered by Falcon shortly after he founded Massive Studios in 2004. He continued to produce Massive content while he became a major directing force at Falcon Studios and Mustang Studios. Falcon distributed 21 DVDs containing Bruno’s Massive content under the moniker Men of Massive.

Bruno was responsible for discovering many succcessful performers, and he worked with most of biggest stars in gay porn from the last 10 years. He was a key influence on the career of Erik Rhodes, who he directed and then mentored as a director. He also has the accomplishment of directing one of the most successful scenes in Falcon’s history, Adam Killian and Zeb Atlas in "Best Men, Part 2 – The Wedding Party." This was Killian’s first gay porn scene as well as Atlas’s first project in gay porn. He discovered and groomed Tom Wolfe who went on to become a Falcon/Raging Stallion exclusive and a huge star in the porn world.

Wolfe had these sincere comments to share about Bruno's passing, “So sad the man who found me and brought me to the industry was lost yesterday. John Bruno was a great friend, talented individual and an amazing person.”

Adam Q. Robinson, Falcon/Raging Stallion VP of production and close co-worker and friend of Bruno, remarked, “I had the privilege of working on nearly every production with John Bruno, and I can only speak highly of him, his friendship, his work ethic and his creative abilities. He was a warm-hearted caring person who will be greatly missed. It saddens me that he would take his own life, because he gave so much and he had much more to share with this world.”

Falcon Studios released this statement:  “It is with sorrow in our hearts that we announce the passing of John Bruno. We send our sincerest condolences and warm wishes to John’s family, friends and loved ones. He was an extraordinary talent as well as a genuine and caring human being. John, may you rest in peace, and know that we celebrate your life and your accomplishments.”
