Dan has been directing professionally for around seven years. Upon graduating in 2015, Dan worked freelance for TMWRK management, leading to opportunities to direct music videos for the likes of Diplo, Major Lazer, Jack U, and Dillon Francis. Simultaneously, he freelanced at an ad agency, creating short-form animated ads for Apple Music. Transitioning to directing from self-taught editing, animation, and VFX, Dan’s expertise lies in post-production, using a mixture of animated graphics, live-action performances, and post-production editorial techniques. His style incorporates ’90s nostalgia and color, comedy, and playfulness.

“The team at Stink has always been incredibly supportive and encouraging to me over the years, before having even worked together,” Dan said. “I’m very excited about the opportunity to officially partner with Stink to make work that stands out as refreshing in an oversaturated media landscape.”

Ryland Burns, Stink’s US EP & Head of Music Videos said, “I came across Dan’s work a couple of years ago and was immediately blown away. All of his films offer this strange, distorted, off-kilter take on reality that I hadn’t seen before. On top of that, Dan embodies a refreshing DIY, self-starter mentality: directing, producing, editing, and doing visual effects all himself. He approaches every project with a modern perspective and most recently has shown an insane natural ability to confidently and seamlessly adapt his unique workflow and filmmaking process to the commercial landscape. It’s been really exciting and rewarding watching him grow as a director, from both afar as a fan, and now as close collaborators. We couldn’t be more excited to represent him for commercials and music videos at Stink and be a part of his wild world.”

Blake Powell, Stink’s Global Head of Film added, “Dan’s ‘Glimpse of Us’ is one of the most captivating and original music videos I’ve seen in a very long time. His work is refreshingly experimental and engaging. I’m looking forward to making standout work together at Stink.”
