Writer Director Daniel R. Chavez with Host Julie-Kathleen Langan on ActorsE Chat
Daniel R. Chavez is a writer and director originally from North Hollywood, California. Following graduation from North Hollywood High, Daniel attended college at UCLA where he studied Business Management for the entertainment industry.
Daniel worked his way up in Hollywood beginning as a temporary clerk with Columbia Pictures. Daniel rapidly moved up in the business and gained a lot of experience into how a major motion picture studio operates in the day to day business. This was an incredible experience for Daniel but left him yearning for more as this was not the most interesting work.
Daniel desired more creativity in his career and went on to gain management and executive positions within The Walt Disney Company, SoundStorm and Graymatter. Upon his appointment to Vice President of Post Production Services for Warner Bros., Daniel noticed a change and felt the creative flow as a result of the established relationships with the artists and icons in television and in film. This also led to Daniel’s desire to read more scripts and subsequently led to him writing as well. As Daniel’s creativity flourished, this opened the door for him to directing.
Then in 2010, Daniel developed his own full service production company and Ad agency, DragonCove Studios. As a leader and veteran in the industry with years of practical experience, Daniel began directing and producing commercials within his own production company. Then in 2012 Daniel fulfilled another dream through making his writing and directorial debut with his feature film “Broken Glass.”
