Director Biography - Daniel Denegre
Dan Denegre has been creating independent shorts and branded content for several years, but lately been obsessed with crafting new experiences and storytelling approaches to open viewers hearts and bend their minds. His latest project focuses on telling a story about greed, despair and hope exclusively through movement. His next project, It Waits Below, aims to peel back a few layers of civility and show how frail yet dangerous we become when conspiracies rule our minds.
The short film Vultures captures an idea I had about using movement and no dialog to tell a short, expressive story about global exploitation with the goal of circumventing pretenses and politics. Working with producer Hazel Jennings and choreographer Nicole Von Arx was a dream. The three of us spent time honing essential story beats and marrying movement, framing and coverage. In the end, I hope the viewer walks away a little more unsettled and thoughtful without knowing quite sure why.
