Dan Buyanovsky is a journalist-turned-filmmaker who approaches all creative endeavours with a deep curiosity and humanistic view.
He was raised in New York by Russian immigrant parents who taught him empathy and multiculturalism at an early age. He is bilingual and has spent time living in Miami, Los Angeles, Paris and Tokyo; the result of a passion for discovery that has led him to explore new cultures and methods of communication, in hopes of better understanding the people he shares this planet with.
In his work, Dan is an open-minded and earnest collaborator who balances documentary-style storytelling with meticulously-planned cinematography. He is drawn to movement and sport — working in the past with professional basketball players, boxers, judokas, runners and surfers — but is also interested in the worlds of fashion, fine arts, conservation and technology.
Dan has crafted films for best-in-class brands like Adidas, Budweiser, CNN, Genesis, Nowness, Samsung and Yamaha, among others.
