Dan followed his dreams from New Jersey into New York City where he started out working his magic on complex VFX sequences for high end commercials. Being on the postproduction side of things gave him a unique insight into the minds of creatives and clients alike.
But, Dan had his own stories to tell, and went on to create his narrative short film Anomaly, a period drama that illustrates Dan’s ability to direct a combination of talent performance with seamless VFX treatments.
The short gathered a lot of attention and praise, and offers to direct more things started filling up his inbox. The film marked his departure from the post world and his start in the directing world. Since then, he has put his unique brand of human emotion and perfect VFX on a number of different films for an array of brands, such as: Audi, Volvo, Jordan, Reebok, Lincoln, and the World Surf League.
Dan is keen to break new ground and push the envelope with each project he takes on, seamlessly blending the lines between visual and narrative storytelling.
