Taken from his website biography states, “The camera is an extension of human perception and when the format of the camera and the image frame change, so does our perception of the universe, and with it the understanding of who we are”, Dane Christensen, creator of Dansker Digital, works to reframe storytelling, and in turn, the viewer’s perception of the story. We sat down with Dane to learn more about Dansker Digitial Studio, current projects he’s working on, and his favorite activities outside of work.
1. Can you describe the work you do for Dansker Digital?
Dansker Digital Studio specializes in documentary and commercial film production. We work across a variety of formats including 2D film, VR, AR, and aerial cinematography.
2. Are there any exciting new projects you are working on right now?
I just finished a 360 video documentary about the Rarámuri’s, an indigenous tribe in northern Mexico, worldview and how they treat Mother Earth. Come on by my desk and you can watch the film in a VR headset!
3. What is your favorite part about working at The Shop?
Call me simple, but I love that cold brew coffee keg. It makes me really happy.
4. How has working at The Shop benefited your overall workflow?
I had to have my studio space in the Granary district for five years and while it was an awesome creative space, I found that I was longing to be around other humans. So, I switched to The Shop. While I can’t play music as loud as I could before, I’m energized by the people, the building, the vibe (and, of course, the cold brew).
5. What is the one thing you enjoy doing the most when you’re not working and why?
Disc golf! If you know, then you know 😉 I just came back from a trip to “Disc Golf Paradise”. It’s a small island between Sweden and Finland called Åland. Its main source of tourism is disc golf!
