Director's Bio

Rich Varville is a San Diego based filmmaker and recording artist that gained notoriety from his unique style of story-based, cinematic, music films. In addition, he produces narrative, industrial, and documentary films through his company RSVP FILMS.

Originally from Colorado Springs, Colorado, he studied media production at Pikes Peak College then went on to study psychology at Palomar College in San Marcos, CA. These two very different studies eventually lead to his vision of making thought provoking films that illustrate the human condition.

Rich has written and recorded several albums, both as artist and engineer, has over 1000 live performances, and appeared in several music videos. With more than twenty five years experience working with clients and artists he has honed his skills as a writer; director; editor; and sound designer.

Married, with five boys, Rich enjoys singing and playing guitar in one of his two bands, and is currently working on a feature length screenplay; directing a documentary film; in post production on a psychological thriller which he penned; and consistently has projects in various stages of development and production.
