Filmmaker Steven Caple Jr. has gone from his hometown with the indie movie “The Land” to Peru with “Transformers: Rise of the Beasts” in his career.

It’s a significant elevation in projects and his profile in Hollywood. Caple, a Cleveland Native, caught attention with “The Land,” a heist film set among skateboarders in his hometown, parlayed that into directing “Creed II,” which won praise, enjoyed box office success and, now, he finds himself helming one of the biggest franchises of the past 20 years – “Transformers.”
