Ralph Sepe Jr. (known online through his pseudonym ralphthemoviemaker) is an American film student, actor and Internet personality. He is known for his online reviews of films, satirical content and his short films such as The High and King Candy.

He is currently working on Lover, an upcoming independent romance horror film, as well as his first feature film, slated for release in 2018.


Although he had started "making films at the age of 5", his debut short film was called "The Outsiders", made when he was 12.[2] He then created his YouTube channel on July 14, 2008.[3] On June 28, 2014, Sepe released The High onto his channel, which eventually premiered at the 2015 Queens World Film Festival, earning him the "Emerging Filmmaker" award.[4] His next short film, King Candy, debuted on YouTube in 27 March 2015, also being selected by the 2016 Queens World Film Festival, premiering at The Secret Theatre on March 17, 2016.[5]

From April 28 to June 14, Sepe raised $10,141 from 82 backers from a Kickstarter project to fund Lover, his debut feature film[6] about a couple's relationship that deteriorates over a year. On October, he revealed that the film was transitioning towards production and also that Elías Ortega, the composer for the film, was hired.[7] The trailer for the film was released on August 1, 2016,[8] with release slated for 2017. On September 4 2017, the official Lover Twitter account tweeted out that the movie was done.[9]


Ralph Sepe Jr.'s YouTube channel ralphthemoviemaker revolves around him reviewing films and TV shows, as well as serving as a platform to release his short films. His most popular video is a review of the TV show Mystery Diners hosted by Charles Stiles which currently has over 2 million views. He currently has over 300,000 subscribers on YouTube.[10]
