Vincenzo currently fronts the band Lunarcode as the lead vocals and lyric writer, but is also know for his skills as a filmmaker and owner of Skiptown Playhouse with his two business partners, Michelle Parks and Daniel Camposcanton

 

Having a major film festival has always been a dream of Vincenzo's.  He started Skiptown Playhouse International Film Festival (also known as SPIFF), in early 2019.   A dream he can now mark off of his bucketlist after a very successful first year. His soul focus is to not only inspire other artists through action, but to create opportunity for like-minded independent artists and filmmakers to have their work seen, shared, and showcased with multiple opportunities to learn, grow, and network in the film industry. Working for Princ Films in Sales Acquisitions, Vincenzo knew this could be a great opportunity to connect that with his theater venue for independent filmmakers to learn about how to have their work enter the film market. It’s all about using what you have and connecting the dots. 

 

Born on the East Coast in New Jersey, Vincenzo was raised in an Italian Family where he was strongly encouraged to follow his passion. His grandfather, Vincenzo, was a tailor from Sicily, and gave his family opportunity in America. ​At 18 Vincenzo ventured to the south where he earned his degree in Film and Television from the Savannah College of Art and Design. Upon completion he would relocate to Los Angeles, CA where he would continue his creative education at the International Dance Academy. He is a Dance and Heavily Trained Vocalist. 

 

​Today Vincenzo thrives across the board in entertainment. He founded Skiptown Productions (his film company) in January 2014. While he first focused on acting, he also grew his skills in writing, directing, and editing. Vincenzo has also won a notable amounts of awards and recognition for his directorial and editing work for his music videos with Lunarcode as well as several for his web series and other artists he has directed.
