Pete Capó is an award winning filmmaker from Miami, FL. Efficient storytelling filled with the emotional expressions that stem from his musical background have led his works to receive numerous accolades, including a Silver Telly for his work for Burger King. More importantly, his friend’s Mom thinks he’s a genius.
Pete grew up a musician playing drums and piano since the age of 6 and made it to the semi-finals of the Stravinsky International Piano Competition at age 9. He later became a blues guitarist playing 100’s of club dates and releasing 3 albums. When selecting a college career, he opted for film school instead of music. “There’s a very solid connection between music and the moods and rhythms one can achieve in filmmaking.” His studies at the University of Miami concluded with his thesis film being awarded an answer-print by the faculty.
After working as a freelance editor for notable advertising agencies such as Zubi Ad, Creative On Demand and Young & Rubicam; he made the move to directing commercial and corporate work for national and international brands such as Intima Moda, ADT, Mandarin Oriental and Burger King. As a narrative filmmaker, his debut short Oleander has screened at the Sarasota Film Festival, Orlando Film Festival and internationally at the IndieBo Film Festival in Bogota Colombia.
His friend’s Mom may be a little out of her mind, but she’s a nice lady and he really loves her.
