As the owner and CEO of Mancuso Entertainment, my team and I have the privilege of telling stories for a living. While we produce a lot of branded storytelling, our real heartbeat is independent filmmaking. I have served as the Writer/Director for 1 short film, Producer for 2 short films, and Director for 1 feature documentary. For 2019/2020, we are currently in pre-production for 2 short films, 1 documentary, and 1 feature film.
"Coming Home" is a 40-minute documentary directed by Josh Mancuso and edited by Will Morris.
After the loss of his father shortly after graduating college, Jeremiah Caleb set out on a 40-day journey to India, tracing his father's footsteps. Unsure of what he would find, he discovered much more than he'd ever imagined. Overwhelmed by the intense poverty he encountered, he returned from India and founded the Caleb Hope Foundation.
The film premiered at the Hope Gala at the Writer's Guild Theatre in Beverly Hills on July 14, 2018. A second gala debuted at the Paramount Theatre in Bristol, TN, on November 2, 2018. Screenings have also been held in New York, NY, Charlotte, NC, Florence, SC, Southern Pines, NC, and Kershaw, SC.
"Coming Home" is currently being pitched for distribution.
In 2017, we assembled a team to compete in the 54 Film Fest in Knoxville, TN. Along with dozens of other teams, we had 54 hours to write, shoot, and edit a 7-minute short film.
"Triangle" was written and directed by Brad Bode, and edited by Gabe Hobbs. The film won three awards:
Best Plot Twist
Best Lead Actor - Runner up (Josh Mancuso)
