Sean Daniel Bauer's passion for Filmmaking stemmed from an early age; writing, directing & editing dozens of digital short films with high school friends. In 2003, Bauer attended New York Film Academy's 1-Year Filmmaking program where he found his niche in post production editing. He began a Los Angeles based career as an editor where he worked on wide range of projects.
In 2006, Bauer began a unique screenplay adaptation based on a true story novel, SEPARATED BY DREAMS. The script, EL CAMINO, would serve as his feature Directorial debut. Relocating back to San Diego, Bauer worked with the novel's author, driven to raise the funds necessary to get their film into production on an independent scale budget.
In 2011, principle photography commenced on EL CAMINO. As production rolled on, budget constraints forced the filmmakers to cut/alter various scenes and rethink the structure of the film. Between 2011 to 2014, additional shooting took place while Bauer reshaped the movie in post-production.
Between productions, Bauer continues his passion as a screenwriter, including the script for his follow up feature to El Camino (now available on VOD & DVD).
