Producer / Writer / Director
Over the years, Eric Casaccio has been involved in several different areas of the entertainment industry. He got his start performing in Boston Regional Theatre Productions and independent films. During that time, Casaccio worked for Boston Casting recruiting talent for commercials, industrials, theater productions, and independent films while taking crew positions on local movies.
In January of 1997, Eric moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting and writing and subsequently wrote his first feature screenplay "David's Walls". After completing several drafts, he became determined to bring this creation to life. Shortly thereafter, Eric became involved in production working on features, commercials and music videos. Combining his experiences in production and casting, he produced a five-minute experimental music video for "David's Walls" offering viewers a brief symbolic vision of the story with abstract glimpses of the main characters. "David's Walls" screened in several festivals around the country.
An accomplishment jump starting Casaccio's other creative successes is "Psychic Glitter", an onstage charity event production responsible for raising just under $2,000.00 for The Trevor Project honoring the memory of Lawrence King, a teenager shot and killed in school for his sexual orientation and gender expression. Eric wrote, produced, co-directed and even played a feature length lead role while spreading awareness for an unforgettable tragedy.
Eric's short film "Freak" collected sixteen awards and one nomination on the film festival circuit and reached critical acclaim. This story of self-acceptance touched mainstream, international, underground and LGBT audiences around the world with several positive reviews. "Freak" received worldwide on-demand distribution with Indieflix and is now available on Amazon Prime Video.
In addition to studying abroad with the London Theatre Program, Eric received his Bachelors Degree from Roger Williams University graduating with honors. He has studied acting at the Michael Chekhov Connection, appeared in many award winning short films and is a member of SAG/AFTRA.
While "Narcissist" has been lighting up screens worldwide, Eric received a Certificate in Life Coaching with the Southwest Institute of the Healing Arts with a 4.0 G.P.A. and will be opening up a private practice in 2016. His current feature screenplay "Twin Flames" won the Runner-Up Award for Best Alternative/Social Script at the Action On Film International Film Festival, 4th Place for Best Feature Drama Script with The Indie Gathering International Film Festival and a Nominee for Best Family/Faith Screenplay with The Northern Virginia International Film Festival.
"Twin Flames" will be workshopped sometime in 2016.
