New York and Paris-based production and management company Cadence Films is excited to announce that Clayton Vomero has joined the team of innovative directors on their Paris roster.
Vomero, who splits his time between New York and London, comes to Cadence with a wealth of experience as a writer and director. He has told stories for a diverse range of agencies, people, periodicals, and global brands including but not limited to Amazon, Apple, Jockey, Nike, Facebook and Under Armour.
There’s a living energy and an eye for humanity that Vomero brings to all his work. Describing himself as “overly empathetic” and “someone who genuinely likes human beings,” Vomero has an undeniable gift for capturing the true essence of his locations and subjects. This tangible sense of realness is evidenced by his 2015 short film Gang, a gritty portrait of friendship in New York City starring Major Lazer choreographer Mela Murder and Ghostface Killah’s son Infinite, which was met with overwhelming acclaim.
He often uses physicality and movement to build his characters; from UFC fighters training and competing to street kids dancing - he brings performances to life with more than just facial expressions and dialogue. A self-described “maker of mean, dirty, visual things that people either laugh at or cry to,” Vomero also has a knack for evoking the tenderness within, as evidenced by his emotionally-driven Facebook spot highlighting one woman’s fight with cancer. His attention to the small moments is part of what landed him on the Dazed100, a guide to the next generation of artists shaping culture.
Cadence Films carries a deep bench of directors with unmistakable individual styles, who bring a specific perspective and a dynamic edge to every project they touch. This has set Cadence apart as a destination production house for visionary and influential brands, agencies and artists wanting to leave their imprint on the culture at large.
