His love for media began at age 12, when he convinced his parents to buy him his first DVD burner. Eddie and his friends began filming motocross, snowboarding, and skateboarding videos throughout his young teenage years, teaching himself how to edit on Pinnacle Studio. He began to design graphics, disc artwork, custom DVD menus, and even distributed them, all before the age 15.
When he got to high-school, Eddie was named starting goaltender for the varsity ice hockey team and would hold that position for the next four years, ranking 2nd in the state of N J. He began interviewing his teammates throughout the season, and was immediately drawn to PVTV Studios. There, he would learn the basics of live switching, lighting design, and editing on Final Cut Pro, all after his 5am morning skate sessions. He went on to become captain of both his hockey & lacrosse teams, but it was his PVTV production team that took home first place in the Passaic County Film Festival in 2006, and runner up in 2007, where he served as producer, actor, camera operator & lead editor.
After graduating the University of Rhode Island in 2012 with a B.A. & Film Media & Video Production, Eddie began his full-time career, with his first job as a Production Coordinator at MIB Mediaworks. Shortly after, he decided to create Eddie Dante Productions, LLC where he could film and edit short video projects & pursue and learn freelance photography, which he still does today.
He was soon hired by BMW of North America's video production department, where would work full-time for the next 6 years as an editor and camera operator. There, he was able to use his passion for motorsports to travel, assist in filming, and edit competitive forum videos with his team. He was later named Senior Editor, producing a variety of promotional, educational, corporate communication, and exciting training videos for BMW NA, MINI, Rolls Royce Motorcars, and BMW Motorrad brands.
In 2019, Eddie decided to pursue a freelance career once again to further develop his skills and explore new opportunities. He has recently worked with brands such as FOOD Network, Live Nation, Guns N Roses, Game of Thrones Live Concert Series, EDGE TV, and Today's Business.
Eddie is a video editor, shooter, and producer, born and raised in northern New Jersey.
