Daniel Marjan on his Filmmaking Process and Going From Intern to Junior Creative Director

Earlier this year, electriclime promoted Daniel Marjan to Junior Creative Director in the Singapore office. He first joined the company in 2021 as part of an internship program. Since that time the young filmmaker has directed projects for Goethe-Institut and Crazy Domains.

Following those successful films, Marjan earned himself a full-time position with the company in their Duxton Road office.

“My role as Junior Creative Director goes beyond film directing and consists of working with Creative Director Pabz Alexander to oversee the creative side of our Singapore production – developing projects with the team from ideation to delivery,” said Marjan.

 
 

“This can take many forms and consists of writing scripts, editing managing sessions, creating shooting schedules and breakdowns, etc.

“I strive to deliver a filmmaking style that utilizes vibrant imagery that is paired with energetic editing and a cinematic tone.”

 
 

Talking about how his road to joining the industry Marjan said, “I got my start in the industry whilst undergoing my filmmaking degree. Although at the time I was mainly creating narrative short films, I explored taking on commercial freelance jobs often as a DoP or director – I feel this is what ignited my interest for commercial filmmaking as the challenge of incorporating my narrative storytelling into a client brief is exciting.

“I carried this on after university where I worked with ADNA to direct a commercial for the UK market.”

On his internship with electriclime, Marjan added: “The great thing about the electriclime internship is that you gain experience that spans across multiple areas within the filmmaking process – learning how to be flexible and adapt to what is required.

“This goes hand in hand with learning how to work with a team and I’d say this has been the most crucial thing I’ve tried to carry on onto my full-time position.”
