George C Romero
A commercial and film director for more than 20 years, Romero’s style of creative can be seen in more than 100 commercials, 6 feature films and countless short projects including “The Auctioneers,” which made its mark in the competitive world of DSLR filmmaking when he addressed the tragedy of human trafficking.
A native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, George Cameron Romero was born the son of legendary director, George A. Romero (“Night of the Living Dead,” “The Dark Half”) and after attending Thiel College in Pennsylvania, Romero spent several years moving around the country and working crew jobs on location-based films of all sizes, until he took a break to join the dotcom boom and explore the world of advertising and creative brand strategy. After developing a reputation for delivering impossible results at half the cost of his competitions, Romero’s agency caught the attention of a direct marketing company, whose owners bought Romero’s agency and creative staff and introduced his fringe style to Fortune 500 clients.
Shortly after, Romero’s paths had culminated into one when his vision for a brick and mortar motion picture studio in Western Pennsylvania was realized and the doors to Batpack Studios opened in 2004.
During his time at the head of Batpack Studios, Cameron directed two feature films, developed over 80 creative online marketing strategies and campaigns for Fortune 500 companies, directed over 100 commercials for companies like Verizon, Verizon Wireless, The Lending Tree, Cracker Barrel, and Sony Electronics, to name a few, and he worked to give independent, young filmmakers a place to call home.
Romero has since set off on his own path and has developed and produced a handful of projects on his own under his new moniker, Films Used to be Dangerous, LLC d.b.a. Romero Pictures. He is also responsible for his Direct-to-Audience (D2A) Production Program that allows fans to invest directly in his films and enjoy any profit that Romero’s D2A projects may make by being treated as direct investors in his films.
