Walter Montiel is a Paraguayan writer, director and producer living and working in New York City. He has written a couple of short films, COMMITTING... and GLOAMING ALMOST INVISIBLE. He has also collaborated with Dominick Pietrzak in producing Luke Arnold's upcoming feature film EMPLOYEES ONLY together. His internship for indie icon Larry Fessenden's Glass Eye Pix provided him with an education in independent filmmaking that proved invaluable when he directed his first short film TORMENTAS, premiering this fall in Paraguay. THE EGG AND THE HATCHET is an all too-rare collaboration that means to bridge the gap between North American and Latin American independent filmmaking.
