Jeffrey Paul Kapp, known by many as simply Jeff Kapp (03/07/1987) creates films that not only find acceptance in world-class film festivals but have garnered him accolades and filmmaking awards as well.
His feature, “Scapegoat” has played to full houses everywhere and has won much acclaim for this gripping thriller.
But Jeff did not start out to make films. He grew up playing music in local bands. After becoming a father, he hung up career in music.
After he met Shane Schanski who was an actor, now co-owner of Vigilant Entertainment (he and Jeff co-own Vigilant Entertainment), Shane filled Jeff’s head with different stories about the film industry. Jeff decided instead of writing songs, he wanted to try his hand writing scripts and got hooked.
He has since written scripts for Friendly Advice and Ever After which has won numerous awards at prestigious film festivals throughout the world, with the films “Still,” “Storage,” and “Lift” in various stages of production.
He agreed to give us this interview.
