Toronto native, Dan Margules, spent his early career in entertainment as a rapper, and producer/radio host at night. His show, The Masterplan Show, the longest running hip hop radio program in Canada, featured such guest appearances as Chuck D, the Wu Tang Clan and Drake, to great acclaim. Working in a post house by day, his talent for solving the intricate puzzles of projects and workflow pulled Margules deeper into post production and initiated his career as a flame artist. During his successful decade-long tenure at Toronto’ Crush Inc., he served as Lead Compositor/Designer on Marco Brambilla's video installation 'Civilization' for the opening of The Standard Hotel in New York. Since, he has expanded his repertoire from advertising campaigns, feature films and VR.
Known for his work on such projects as Lego Batman for Sky, Gold Bond 'Shaq Wisdom,' Canada Dry’s 'Busy,' the Prey game trailer, and groundbreaking 360VR experiences for the Oscar-Winning film The Arrival, and the Shinola Factory Tour, 2016 Lumiere Award winner for Best Branded VR Content, and GMC’s #enlistme, a 360 awareness campaign to benefit injured veterans. He also worked on commercials for Kellogg’s iconic brands, incorporating character animations of Tony The Tiger and Toucan Sam by noted artist Chuck Gammage (Supervising Animator, Who Framed Roger Rabbit) into live action narratives.
