Dan is a Norwegian director and designer currently based in Sydney, Australia.
He began his career as a motion designer after graduating from Billy Blue College of Design where he won several awards for his work, such as a bronze cube at the Art Directors Club in Direction, and post-prod and editing winner at the Adobe Design Achievement Awards.
He soon began freelancing, and as much as he enjoyed working alongside some of the best in the industry on TVC’s, title sequences, and covering the Sydney Opera House sails during Vivid 2017, he realized that he was missing something. He discovered that capturing and telling raw, human stories is where his true passion lies, and he has since made the switch from motion graphics to filmmaking and directing.
Surrounding himself with like-minded people to create work that evokes emotion and reflection in the viewer, has sparked a newfound love for the craft.
