Director Biography - Eddie DeBartolo

Filmmaking and visual storytelling is my passion. I have always wanted to direct films, finally I have started at the age of 15. I am originally from Lansing, Michigan and was born on November 21, 2004. I am ranked the number one student at Cass High School in Cartersville, Georgia. I just completed my first short on June 7, 2020, Fear Thy Forest - A Short Horror Film. Now, I am already working on my next short film, Mansion on Maybelle Street - A Short Horror Film. Showcasing my film talent and ability to capture the moment in great cinematography. My goal is to work with Warner Bros. Pictures and New LIne Cinema or Sony Entertainment Motion Picture Group to collaborate with big motion picture deals. I have endless clever and interesting script ideas, an eye for location and setting that add depth within a visual story well-told, and boundless energy for film projects and people who believe and bank on my talent as a young emerging film director.
