Bio

Pete Capó is a Latino 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. 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.

Pete currently works as a freelance commercial director and editor for notable agencies such as Publicis and Y&R; and has worked with brands such as Kellogg’s, Planet Fitness, Burger King, Virgin, Mercury and more. His friend’s Mom may be a little out of her mind, but she’s a nice lady and he really loves her.
