Director Biography - Daniel Roemer

Daniel Roemer's unique and powerful style of directing has lead him to receive such attention as USA Film's Top 10 Emerging Director's list at the age of 20, two-time Project Greenlight Best Director Finalist (Ben Affleck/Matt Damon), and student Academy Award State finalist by age 22.

He has been characterized as "a filmmaker with his finger on the pulse of the world's youth," as his short films have been distributed theatrically in over 75 countries. Partnering with Inspirational Films in Europe, colleges have packed out auditoriums with over three thousand students, as well as standing room only theaters in major European cities.

He has a style akin to Quentin Tarantino and Wes Anderson and according to his film, The Select Fit, is "one of the most well- directed and innovative films of the year, writer/director Daniel Roemer is a voice to be reckoned with."

Hanna Rosin from the Washington Post writes in a recent article that "Roemer is one of the fresh new voices that Act One [screenwriting school] faculty members talk about when Hollywood studio executives call."

Daniel's Short films stream on Verizon and Sprint cell phones worldwide (12 million subscribers) and play in China on internet, TV, & public transportation.

Daniel's written and co-written six screenplays, two of which were developed at Fox Studios with him attached to direct.

He's screened in festivals including Sundance, AFI Fest, LA Shorts Fest, and a special senator screening in Washington DC (for selected congressmen).

Daniel was also among the few who finalized for the LA Shorts Fest "DNA Award," the festival's top honor of a million dollar feature deal with Universal Pictures (500 contestants).

Recently Daniel was a top 50 Director Finalist (of 10,000 entrants) for Fox's reality show "On the Lot", produced by Steven Spielberg and Mark Burnett, showcasing filmmakers "bound for stardom".

His shooting and editing have aired on Good Morning America, Dr. Phil and Arsenio Hall's TV series "The World's Funniest Moments".

His behind the scenes work includes Sony Picture's exclusive (I Love Your Work) starring Giovanni Ribisi, Jason Lee, Vince Vaughn, Christina Ricci and Elvis Costello.

His national ad campaigns include editing series for Taco Cabana (national restaurant chain) Keystone Capital and Doc's Wildlife Blend, national commercials he directed airing on the Sportsman's Network.

His nonprofit work includes interviews and promos with John Travolta, Kelly Preston, Meryl Streep, Olivia Newton-John, John Ritter, Pierce Brosnan and Selma Blair, as well as an extensive interview with Ben Stiller for The Huckleberry Fund (nonprofit for Homeless Children).

Editing credits include 15-week TV series "Beyond the Felt," showcasing world's top poker players, A&E reality TV show "Dumpster Diving," feature-length documentary on Breast Cancer, starring Christina Applegate, Melissa Etheridge and Sheryl Crow (distrib. Lionsgate).

He's filmed and edited for A&E E!, ET, Access Hollywood, TV News, and screened at national conventions for 20th Century Fox Producer, Ralph Winter (X-Men 1&2, X-Men: The Last Stand, Fantastic 4).

Most recently Daniel directed a TV pilot for CW Network (Atlanta) and is in post production, as well as finishing his feature-length documentary "Red White and Blowhard" shot across the US 2012-2013.

His work can be found at Best Buy, Target, K-Mart and Barnes and Noble, and other Lionsgate venues.
