Director Biography - Salvatore Fullmore

Salvatore Fullmore, got his start in the film industry in 2002. Combining his passion for storytelling and music, Fullmore then found himself at the head of the new wave of media having gone “viral” collaborating with Nicki Minaj and Wiz Khalifa (to name a few) very early in their careers. That move would prove to be vital, as Sal can proudly say that his music videos have accumulated over 650 million views. Companies put their trust in Sal to tell important stories to a wider audience whether for fundraising or other marketing purposes. This has put Sal in an elite class and is why he has become one of the Bay Area’s most sought after filmmakers.
