Vincent Labriola is a media producer, creative project manager, and filmmaker based in Chicago.
He has worked with a long list of clients that includes advertising agencies, major tech and real estate companies, small business owners, nonprofits, government contractors, and Michelin-starred chefs. Notable client work includes a video package that helped a local nonprofit raise over $100,000 to fight homelessness, exceeding projections by 25%; a video package about hand-made guitar amplifiers used by members of the Smashing Pumpkins and Wilco; and a demo video for medical emergency tech developed in collaboration with TATRC and the US Army.
Vincent also wrote and directed a short film about South Siders bowling that premiered (and was nominated for a Gold Hugo!) at the 2013 Chicago International Film Festival; inspired by the oral histories of Studs Terkel, he spent 2014-15 publishing multimedia profiles of Chicago’s culinary community for an audience of thousands; in 2016 raised over $20,000 on Kickstarter, making him one of the rare filmmakers to produce a short film that turned a profit; and in 2018 developed a beer trivia mobile game concept as a member of the tech incubator 1871.
Clients and collaborators agree that Vincent delivers compelling work on time and at budget regardless of the scope of the project: he is comfortable working solo, and has managed crews as large as 140 people. He is adept behind the camera, editing footage, collaborating with internal departments and outside agencies, fundraising, managing projects, and presenting materials--- to colleagues, executives, or the general public.
