ELLEN REITERMAN / DIRECTOR
Stacks Image 29642
Ellen Reiterman doesn’t remember a time when she hasn’t been an arts advocate. Even at the tender age of eight she was involved in the performing arts as producer, director and star of her own puppet show! Over the years Ellen’s interest has primarily been behind the scenes in live performances. She’s worked as sound technician, lighting technician, stage manager and director. On occasion she’s also been known to wander out on stage as actor, dancer and improvisational performer.

Ellen is delighted to serve on the AMPS Board. Her interest in film has grown over the years. A few years ago she was a participant in the creation of a film that had a 48-hour deadline. That film project once again underlined her strong support for the creative process and for those who work the long hours and do the hard work to make a film.

Ellen has a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre from UC Santa Cruz, a Certificate of Achievement in Early Childhood Education, and recently completed the Washington Improv Theatre’s program in long­form improvisation. Ellen looks forward to supporting AMPS and cheering on all the filmmakers!
