Born a Pisces, a sign known for deep feelings and imagination, Don Capria has been a writer since his earliest years, creating art via multiple mediums throughout his life. After high school he toured and recorded music as a drummer in the NY hardcore scene. His passion for music inspired his transition to filmmaking, as Don began producing and directing music videos for artists such as Skarhead, Danny Diablo, Madball, and Eye Ra Haze.
Don transitioned into writing scripts with his first project, Westchester, a TV series pilot we wrote and directed about his experiences both growing up in the New York suburb and his involvement in the music and club industry. Years later, Don now has a number of feature screenplays under his belt, ready to be put into production. His short film, Eulogy, just completed post-production and will appear in festivals in 2015. Don has just completed writing a biography based on reputed Mob legend Joseph Colombo slated for release in 2015. He is currently consulting with documentary producers and aiding in the development of the book’s adaptation to the big screen. Don is also set to begin pre-production in 2015, directing his first feature length film, Valhalla, starring Lillo Brancato (Bronx Tale/ Sopranos).
