Joseph N. DiCara

Joseph N. DiCara

Co-Founder & Lead Filmmaker
Meet Joseph

Joseph is a filmmaker turned entrepreneur, using his gifting for telling stories with moving images to build this company he co-founded with Juan Santos.

“Ever since I first saw Jurassic Park as an 8-year old boy, I’ve been enamored by what appears on the screen”

It is this love of cinema that led him on the path of becoming a director.

Joseph cut his teeth in the New York film industry working as an intern on the Academy Award winning film “Still Alice” starring Julianne Moore. He then went on to work as a production assistant for companies such as Nat Geo, The Food Network and Lifetime TV. All of these experiences helped him see the inner workings of how to run production.

In 2016 Joseph started working for Gracepoint Gospel Fellowship, the largest church in Rockland County, producing video content for them on a regular basis. This is where his unique style began to develop with influences ranging from the films of Martin Scorsese to the music of Metallica.

The church leadership embraced Joseph’s style for gritty realism whole-heartedly and the congregation did as well, and it was within the walls of this church where he was able to flourish and become the filmmaker he is today. It was at Gracepoint where Joseph and Juan met each other and after being in a bible study at the lead Pastor’s home, decided they were going to take the journey of starting HeartBeat Media Group.

Joseph’s unique ability to connect with people on a deep level and give direction allows for his clients to be themselves on camera and ultimately give him the material he needs deliver a product that showcases who they truly are.

Joseph is well versed in:

• Video Editing
• Cinematography
• Documentary Filmmaking
• Screen Writing
• Location Sound Recording
• Directing
• Color Correction & Color Grading
