About the Author

Dan Fabrizio is an award-winning filmmaker that lives in Northern New Jersey.

He is a graduate of Rutgers University (Class of ’03) where he majored in Journalism and Mass Media and minored in Cinema Studies.  While at Rutgers University, Fabrizio wrote, directed, and co-produced the independent film Wasteland; the first-ever feature-length film created by Rutgers University Students.  Wasteland was awarded Best Student Film at the 2003 New York International Independent Film and Video Festival.

In 2004, Fabrizio finished his third film, a short titled The Playground which went on to win The Audience Choice Award for Best Film at the 2005 Super 8 Film and Video Festival. 

Since March of 2004, Fabrizio has worked as a producer, writer, and director at Chase Wilson – an Emmy-Nominated production company located in Northern New Jersey.  At CW he often assumes writing and directing responsibilities on a variety of different productions including commercials, documentaries, interactive and educational programs, marketing and promotional videos, and TV shows.

In 2009, Fabrizio wrote and directed Sticks & Stones; a film that deals with the horrible consequences that cyber bullying has on the life of an average teenager.  S&S was shown to High School students throughout New Jersey starting in the Fall of 2009 and has since garnered national and international attention as an effective program for teaching teenagers about the potentially devastating consequences of bullying another child.  Sticks & Stones was featured at both the 2009 and 2010 Crimes Against Children Conference in Dallas, TX; a conference attended by over 3,000 federal, local, and international law enforcement and education professionals.

Currently, Fabrizio is developing a series of new films for Chase Wilson Education, a subsidiary of CW dedicated to creating films that use high-impact storytelling to influence children to make safer, healthier, and more civil decisions in their day-to-day lives.

To date, Fabrizio has also written several feature-length screenplays and TV pilots.  In 2008, his feature-length film script Stolen Sky was named a Finalist at Scriptapalooza’s annual screenplay competition.  He is currently developing a television series called Ellis which tells the story of a Amelia Anderson, a nurse responsible for saving the lives of countless immigrants whose children and grand-children will go on to discover the American Dream.
