Principal Bio

Hi. I’m Vince Caperelli, Jr. and I believe strongly in the power of story, through the medium of film/video, to help change lives.

For over ten years, I worked in marketing and advertising, concurrently managing dozens of projects, developing project plans and creating budgets. Throughout that time, I also managed vendor and client relationship, from those with local start-ups to multi-national corporations. All of this has been preparation for producing corporate and nonprofit videos and documentary films, a task I view as the ultimate in project management.

In February of 2009, I attended Barefoot Workshops’ “Documenting the Delta” workshop in Clarksdale, Mississippi. This powerful, 2-week, immersive experience cemented my belief in passionately committing to this direction with my life. It was an extremely meaningful time of engagement and connection with people, place and story.

My practical filmmaking experience started in the spring of 2004, when I served as 1st Assistant Director on Titus Heckel’s narrative short All My Enemies. In 2009, Wade Grayson and I produced, directed, filmed and edited the 8-minute, award-winning documentary The Real Deal, which made its festival debut in the 2009 Crossroads Film Festival in Jackson, MS, and won the Best Emerging Documentary category of the 2009 Bucks Fever FilmFest. Most recently, I completed the short doc Ciao, Calzolaio! (Hello, Shoemaker!), a story about local craftsman/shoemaker Perry Ercolino, whose father started the family shoemaking business in 1930s Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Hello, Shoemaker! was awarded Best Emerging Documentary at the 2014 Bucks Fever FilmFest.

I believe that most things worth communicating resonate in story form, so the story is the key to the video, whether it is a documentary film, a corporate overview video, a television commercial, or anything in between. And I welcome the opportunity to discuss your video needs over a cup of coffee.

When I’m not out shooting or sitting at the editing suite, I can be found spending time with my wife and 2 boys, running, watching movies or serial television, playing LEGO, or just hanging out.

I look forward to helping you tell your stories. What story do you want to tell?
