Vinnie “crashed and burned” his way through more than 20 different industries before picking up a camera at the age of 24. It was a job as a personal trainer that thrust him behind a camera — the gym he was working at needed help with media. Vinnie didn’t even know what “ISO” meant, but that didn’t stop him from jumping in and starting a production studio.
Now he shoots stock full-time for Dissolve, working alongside his wife, Cindy, whom he met thanks to filmmaking — she was one of his models. Together, they shoot authentic, organic footage, and the Liftoff program is allowing them to live their dream.
