Beginning his career living in a 1973 Winnebago, Vern Moen was able to save enough money to buy film equipment and hasn't stopped working since.
Vern's wide range of work includes short films, music videos, feature-length documentaries and occasionally a mix of the three. His penchant for real-life narrative has led him around the world, leading to features "Plastiki and the Material of the Future" and "Mando Diao: 28 Years of Solitude." Taking a turn at TV, Vern directed a series of short episodic content for the music series "From the Basement," capturing multi-cam 3D performances from artists ranging from Radiohead to Scissor Sisters.
Vern’s highly stylized music documentary work has included promotions and live performance films for artists such as Foo Fighters, The Dead Weather, Broken Bells and Cold War Kids. His complete approach to each project has seen him collaborate on repeated projects, and his ability to meticulously document subjects' performances and antics, both in music videos and his on-the-road-style documentaries has garnered him great respect.
Vern lives with his wife and two children in Los Angeles.
