A bit about Dan.
I proudly say that I started out with zero connections in the film/TV production industry. That's a badge of honor to me: having had to forge my own path. First by making home movies in my backyard and sharing them on YouTube with 2,000,000+ viewers. Then by working as a cinematographer on dozens of films and videos nationwide. And most recently, by writing the first book all about the entry-level lifestyles of production assistants in showbiz: "Gofers: On the Front Lines of Film and Television."
On stage, I hosted the New York City public TV show Alive in Five and had theater stints as Romeo, Robin Hood and Raoul in The Phantom of the Opera. Behind the scenes, I received my dual B.A. in Film Production and TV/Radio at CUNY Macaulay Honors College at Brooklyn College. Now, I'm my own boss at Passing Planes Productions LLC. I'm proudly self-employed as a videographer, video producer, editor and writer. And I always bring my highest energy to projects I'm a part of. Until we meet in person, here's wishing you safe travels,
