Dan is a Norwegian director and designer currently based in Sydney, Australia.
Dan is a multi-disciplinary director and designer currently based in Sydney, Australia. He began his career as a motion designer after graduating with a degree in Digital Media Design from Billy Blue College of Design where he won several awards for his work, such as a bronze cube at the Art Directors Club and post-prod and editing winner at the Adobe Design Achievement Awards amongst others.
As much as he enjoyed freelancing alongside some of the best in the industry, working on TVC’s, title sequences, and high-end projects such as the Vivid Opera House sails, he soon realized that he was missing a human element. He discovered that capturing raw, human stories and emotion is where his true passion lies, and he has since made the switch from motion graphics to filmmaking and directing.
Dan still works with pixels, but surrounding himself with talented crew and actors to put a vision to life has sparked a newfound love for the craft.
