From snowy peaks to surreal sets, Daniel Cojanu is a versatile and dependable cinematographer. With 20 years of experience in narrative filmmaking, documentary and commercials, Daniel's eye for poignancy makes every shot a masterpiece.
Starting out as a news cameraman, Daniel has produced several TV documentaries in Romania, Iraq, Holland and the United States. While studying cinematography at Bucharest's National University of Drama and Film "Ion Luca Caragiale", his collaborations with director Gabriel Sandru propelled the pair to Cannes and Locarno Film Festivals for their shorts, Pentru o mana de bomboane (A Fistful of Candies) and Concluzie.
Following the festival circuit, Daniel embarked on an independent filmmaking career, working several international film productions in Romania and abroad. He was DP on the television comedy, Leana si Costel and the Romanian cultural channel's promotional ID's. Daniel worked as a camera operator (and 3rd unit DP for special effects) on Bunraku imdb.com/title/tt1181795/
