Celtic Pride: Director

Buy this video from Reel.com
TOM DeCERCHIO (Director) directed and wrote the short film "Nunzio's Second Cousin," a black comedy which starred Vincent D'Onofrio and Miles Perlich, and which received acclaim at film festivals at Telluride, Edinburgh, Montreal and Sundance.

He has also written the screenplay for the forthcoming "Amanda" (aka "Eighteen Hands") which was recently produced by John McTiernan, as well as other scripts for Renny Harlin and The Walt Disney Studios.

A native of the Detroit suburb of Dearborn, Michigan, DeCerchio attended Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo before beginning a career in advertising.

DeCerchio was already an award-winning copywriter by the age of 28 when he and Bryan Buckley, a colleague at Chiat/Day Advertising in New York, decided to start their own agency, BuckleylDecerchio, in 1988. The company grew phenomenally quickly, eventually taking on another partner as Buckley/DeCerchio/Cavalier, and garnering such clients as Snapple, Godfather's Pizza, Rigoletto Sportswear, Yugo America and Mother Jones magazine.

In 1991 DeCerchio and Buckley sold a feature film screenplay to Columbia Pictures and signed with an entertainment agent. He soon decided to sell his own advertising agency to then president Jane Cavalier, and to move to Los Angeles. A year later he began directing television commercials which went on to win industry awards, including the prestigious New York Art Directors Gold Award.

He soon began work on "Nunzio's Second cousin" which led to his feature directing debut on "Celtic Pride."
