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 New York hardcore scene. His passion for music inspired his transition into filmmaking, as Capria began producing and directing music videos in the 2000’s.
Soon Capria began writing scripts and directed his first project in 2009, Westchester, a pilot for his TV series about his experiences growing up in the New York suburb and his involvement in the music and club industry. After that project he began working on his first novel, Colombo: The Unsolved Murder, with, the late Anthony Colombo, son of the mob icon, Joseph Colombo. The book was released in December of 2015 and he is currently consulting with producers to develop the book’s adaptation. Following Colombo, he wrote and directed the short film, Eulogy, winning an award at the Queens World Film Festival in 2015. Back to directing in 2019, Capria filmed the “test Pilot” for Abaddon, a crime and suspense, limited series starring Erica Alexander (Bosch, Get Out, Wu Tang- An American Saga). Recently Capria wrote and directed the award winning short film, Anecdota, starring 11-year old actor, Bella Grace, who is from his hometown in Westchester County, New York.
