Mr. Rappaport's film, "An American Artist, Richard Warren Rappaport," was filmed in 2014 before a live audience at the WRPBiTV Studios in Boca Raton, Florida, and premiered at the 2016 Ft. Lauderdale International Film Festival.

Mr. Rappaport and René Katz co-produced "Concert, A Short Film," in 2014 at Multivision Studios, Miami. The film premiered in 2015 at the Ft. Lauderdale International Film Festival.

Mr. Rappaport produced the feature length film and docu-concert / documentary, CONCERT, which had its world premier at the historic Cinema Paradiso at the Ft. Lauderdale International Film Festival in October 2011. CONCERT is being shown on the festival circuit and at industry screenings. Robert Berkowitz also produced the film and Rene’ Katz is the executive producer.

CONCERT was screened as an Official Selection of the DocMiami International Film Festival, and at the Boca Raton Museum of Art, the Women In Film Independent Film Series, Los Angeles, and the Third Annual International Legal Symposium on the World of Music Film, Television and Sports, Miami Beach, all in 2012.

CONCERT presents an introspective look into the world of songwriting, where every song has a story and every story has a song. This docu-concert addresses the genesis of original music, the texture that lives within a musical composition and the artistic relevance of music to our world.

American Law

Television: The "American Law" Television Series

Mr. Rappaport co-produced and hosted the “American Law” television vignette series, also co-produced by Robert Berkowitz at Multivision Studios, Miami.

“American Law” has been seen on the CBS Television network stations WFOR-TV (CBS, Miami-Ft. Lauderdale and The Palm Beaches) and WCBS-TV (CBS, New York City), and is nationally syndicated by the Television Syndication Company, Inc.

The Mission of “American Law”

The purpose in producing the show was to present to television audiences basic, general and helpful information relating to the law. Our belief is that the knowledge that audiences gain based upon the series would create a better understanding of the nature of the law as well as individual and collective rights and responsibilities under the law. The topics which are covered in this first edition and which are provided in script form as well as on video and DVD are listed above.

Television is an incredibly important, informative, educational and entertaining medium. We hope that the issues and points raised in these programs are beneficial to television audiences around the country.
