Vincent Peranio (born 1945) is an American film and television production designer, art director, set designer, and actor.[1]

Peranio began his career designing film sets for John Waters. Because of his work with Waters, he is considered one of the Dreamlanders, Waters' ensemble of regular cast and crew members.


Peranio was born in 1945 in Baltimore.

Peranio's first credited project is the creation of Lobstora, a room-sized rapacious lobster in Waters' Multiple Maniacs (1970).

After Multiple Maniacs, Peranio developed a successful career creating the sets for all subsequent films of Waters and other films and TV shows, including Barry Levinson's Liberty Heights and the crime dramas, Homicide: Life on the Street, The Corner, and the HBO television production The Wire.[2][3]

At times, Peranio's brother Ed Peranio assisted with prop construction and creating effects, as well as portraying minor roles in the early Waters films.[4]
