Passion Productions was an American home video distributor active between 2002 and 2003.
Passion Productions was the successor to Saturn Productions. After Saturn was closed by its owner, John Matarazzo, Passion Productions was formed as Matarazzo's new DVD company. Passion Productions used poor-quality film transfers, and occasionally (and accidentally) released films that were not in the public domain, including 1975's Shell Game (owned by 20th-Century-Fox.)
Passion Productions quickly became known for the poor quality of their releases, and in an effort to conceal the company's identity, they began using alternate names on their DVD releases. These names included 'Ace Video' and 'Digital Video Dreams.' In 2002, Passion Productions was purchased by PMC Corp., De., and assumed the name 'Miracle Pictures.' Miracle Pictures continued to release DVDs through 2003, mostly made-for-TV movies which had fallen into the public domain after their production companies went out of business. By 2004, PMC Corp. was closed, and Miracle Pictures took on the name '1st Miracle Pictures' before closing later that year.
After the closing of Miracle Pictures, owner John Matarazzo opened CineVu and began producing music videos.
