In January of 1997, Eric moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting and writing and subsequently wrote his first feature screenplay David’s Walls. After completing several drafts, he became determined to bring his creation to life. Shortly thereafter, he became involved in production working on features, commercials and music videos. Combining his experiences in production and casting, he produced a five-minute experimental music video for David’s Walls offering viewers a brief symbolic vision of the story with abstract glimpses of the main characters. David’s Walls screened in several festivals around the country.
Casaccio's most important accomplishment is Psychic Glitter, an onstage charity event production responsible for raising almost $2,000.00 for The Trevor Project honoring the memory of Lawrence King, a teenager shot and killed in school for his sexual orientation and gender expression.
