“It’s not the years honey, it’s the mileage.”

Wayne Slaten is an American independent film director, screenwriter, editor, and producer. He began developing and directing short film projects under the shingle Moonlite Filmwerks in 2007.


Slaten wrote and directed his first feature length movie Backroad in 2010. His film Cold War was selected as part of an international short film competition to screen at the Cannes Film Festival and soon after his script Patriot Act (later titled Dropa) was a quarterfinalist in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting competition.


Slaten directed the spy-thriller Osprey followed by the short film Red Pearl which screened aboard the International Space Station and went on to win the NASA Jury Award at the CineSpace Film Festival before airing on PBS.


Through f.64 Films, Slaten has directed commercial and industrial projects, as well as, feature films and documentaries including Ash: The Art of Wayne Gilbert and the sci-fi motion picture Dropa which aired on Showtime and The Movie Channel.

And he is a huge Indiana Jones fan.
