- NEW YORK
Valiant Pictures has added writer, editor and filmmaker Lincoln Caplice to its directorial roster for his first U.S. commercial representation. Caplice’s body of work spans such brands as Kirin, Dean & Deluca, Red Bull, Interpol, Lexus and Samsung, among others.
Caplice knew he would ditch a regular 9-5 job when his photographer dad first got him behind the lens. Caplice joined the workforce of Modular Records at the height of its success, giving him invaluable insight into touring global acts such as Daft Punk, Justice, The Pixies and Beck, and on-set experience creating music videos for Tame Impala, The Presets, Cut Copy, and other renowned Australian bands. From here, Caplice segued into partnering with youth culture and lifestyle publications and brands such as Monster Children and Deus Ex Machina, where he helmed advertising campaigns, artist profiles, large-scale events, and feature-length films I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night and South To Sian, which screened internationally to success. He dedicated two years following to traveling the world with filmmaker Taylor Steele, collaborating on feature films and commercial projects.
Alongside Valiant Pictures, Caplice also works with Infinity Squared (Australia) and Monster Children Films (Australia), moving deftly between commercial and documentary filmmaking. He most recently finished shooting a project with Corona and Parley in Indonesia, an endeavor to promote reducing single-use plastics present in our oceans, and is in the midst of pre-production on a narrative short film and a feature length documentary project.
Valiant EP Matthew D’Amato said of Caplice, “He brings beautifully crafted images and honest human performances to his work.”
