Don Capria

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 New York hardcore scene. His passion for music inspired his transition to filmmaking, as Don began producing and directing music videos for artists such as Skarhead, Maximum Penalty, Madball, and other bands from the New York Scene.

Don transitioned into writing scripts with his first project, Westchester, a TV series package he inked about his experiences both growing up in the New York suburb and his involvement in the music and club industry. He directed the pilot, which starred Andrew Keegan, and shortly after began working on his first novel, Colombo: The Unsolved Murder, with, Anthony Colombo, the son of mob icon, Joseph Colombo. The book was released in December of 2015 and now he is currently consulting with documentary producers and aiding in the development of the book’s adaptation to the big screen. Following Colombo, he wrote and directed the short film, Eulogy, and winning at the Queens World Film Festival in 2015. Back to directing in 2019 he filmed the “test Pilot” for Abaddon, a crime, suspense, limited series starring Erica Alexander (Bosch, Get Out, Wu Tang- An American Saga).
