Pete Schuermann was born on Long Island and is currently a resident of Monument, Colorado. His experience in the visual field includes on the job training in almost every aspect of visual production, including but not limited to: photography, lighting, editing, directing, scripting, graphics and his most favorite directing.
Over the years, Pete has amassed an impressive quantity of accolades; include Emmy, Telly, Addy, and Film Festival awards though award competitions in general make him “a little uncomfortable.”
2005 saw the release of Walt Disney Studios and Buena Vista Home Entertainment’s Disneyland: Then, Now and Forever, to which Pete served as Co-director and Editor. The much-praised docu-tainment retrospective piece celebrating Disneyland’s 50th anniversary is available internationally as part of the “Walt Disney Treasures” DVD collection.
In 2008, Pete completed work on his personally most rewarding and important project. The edgy and disturbing documentary, HAZE, has been shown at numerous films festivals, including AFI Dallas, Newport Beach, Hamptons NY, Newport RI, and Indie Spirit and now has national distribution through Hulu and Snag Films.
Pete’s favorite quote: “The best way to convince is through credibility.”
