About Eric

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 his creation to life. Shortly thereafter, he 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.

Casaccio's most important accomplishment is PSYCHIC GLITTER, an onstage charity event production responsible for raising almost $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 all around the world with several positive reviews. FREAK received on-demand distribution with IndieFlix and Amazon Prime.

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 the Screen Actors Guild.

Currently, Casaccio's acclaimed short film NARCISSIST is now available on-demand with dotSTUDIOPRO, mySPOTLIGHT.TV (Apple TV 4, Roku and iOS) and Amazon Prime. For more information, visit: http://www.narcissistthemovie.com

Eric now resides in St. Petersburg, Florida where he expanded his creative career as a virtual inspirational life coach focusing on empowerment from narcissistic situations and envisioning your own picture window of life. For more information, visit: http://www.nowyourlife.com
