Dan DiFelice is a talented up-and-coming filmmaker born and raised in New Jersey, but a true New Yorker at heart.
His first steps in the commercial world were as a VFX specialist on global commercials for clients such as Nike and Playstation – and since his transition as a full fledged director, he’s worked for the best in town such as : the World Surf League, Jordan, Volvo, Lincoln and Reebok.
As a director he continues to incorporate high-end VFX into his work, blending both visual and narrative storytelling. He has also directed fiction, including a short film “Anomaly”, in which he tells the story of multiple relationships, that intertwine around an unprecedented astronomical event. This intense short is proof of Dan’s talent in both talent performance and direction, as well as seamless VFX treatments.
And such a talent doesn’t go unnoticed : in 2016 Dan was featured in the Saatchi & Saatchi New Director Showcase, and won Gold and Silver at the Cannes Young Director Awards for his World Surf League and Carved in Mayhem films, respectively.
Dan's work straddles the line between visual and narrative, continuously inventing new ways of storytelling.
