Hey, I'm Derek!

Los Angeles, California

Hi! My name is Derek Viveiros and I'm excited to join the Seed&Spark family. I never thought of myself as a filmmaker it just thankfully happened....

 

I moved to LA in my early 20's pursuing acting.

 

Fast forward 10 years and I was still on the same boat, auditioning and taking on-camera acting classes. In  2016 Instagram let users record 60 seconds of video. I decided to play around with that and film a sketch on my Iphone. Well I was surprised with the response I got from friends who enjoyed what I was doing. That was the beginning of the end for me. I began experimenting with dozens of sketches. I enrolling in Second City Improv to futher my comedy traning. I was having the time of my life creating through my own lens. That's where I honed the Derek Viveiros_SHō/. 

 

WTF is Derek Viveiros_SHō/ ?

I decided to brand my no bugdet iphone sketch comedy series as a variety shō (show). A place with no restrictions in the form of laughter.

 

Why am I on Seed&Spark?

October of 2018 I decided to slow down with sketches and focus more on long form

narrative content. I wrote and directed my first short film "Pimples n' Nipples".

That's when I realized I was a FILMMAKER.

 

What next?

Funding my pilot episode for Mōther's Creme Diaries.
