The people behind EX DISPOSER –
Daniel Ferrer is a writer and director based in Northern New Jersey. As a lifelong lover of films, Daniel pursued filmmaking at Montclair State University. An open book on his struggle with clinical depression and anxiety, his body of work is often punctuated with stories and characters dealing with the conditions. Ex Disposer, his debut passion project made possible in collaboration with filmmaking partner and producer Amelia Spitler, is his most ambitious and personal film to date. When not writing or directing, he works in film education with Montclair Film.
Amelia Spitler is a writer, director, and producer. In addition to film and tv production, she frequents the film festival circuit, coordinating festivals such as the Sundance Film Festival, Seattle International Film Festival, and DOC NYC.
Raised on the East Coast, Amelia received her BFA in Filmmaking from Montclair State University. It’s at Montclair where she befriended Daniel Ferrer in their Experimental Film class, birthing a friendship and artistic collaboration that led to the creation of Ex Disposer. Post-graduation, Amelia began her professional career at Big Beach Films, where her passion for creative development and producing ignited. Following her craft, Amelia has since coordinated several feature and short films, including Hassan Fazili’s Midnight Traveler (Sundance 2019’s World Cinema Documentary Special Jury Award), Emma Seligman’s Shiva Baby (SXSW 2020, TIFF 2020), and Paola Ossa’s Remember When (Urbanworld Film Festival 2020). She also collaborated as Associate Producer on Omri Dorani’s This Is Our Home (Cinequest 2019).
Amelia is bi-coastal with roots in both New York City and Los Angeles. She is currently working in Richmond, VA in production on FOX 21/Hulu’s DOPESICK. She is a proud member of NYWIFT and the Independent Filmmaker Project.
