In June 1998, Daniel Chen moved from his homeland Taiwan to the United States in pursuit of his passion for film making. Arriving in Los Angeles, the film making capital of the world, Daniel attended Columbia College where he obtained a BA in Cinema Studies. He majored in Directing and also studied Cinematography extensively in and outside of the classroom. Following his graduation he furthered his education at UCLA where he studied producing.
In 2006, Daniel took over as President of Rouge Productions, a company he co-founded, and formed a collaborative partnership with Just Cause Productions, a multimedia production company with extensive motion capture experience. Daniel used this chance to learn the ins and outs of motion capture technology and computer animation and exposed himself to cutting edge technology that is standard on most feature Hollywood productions and also all video games. Now knowing both the traditional and contemporary methods of filmmaking he prepares for a career in film production that will utilize all necessary tools to realize the visions of the auteurs with whom he collaborates.
Daniel also recently acquired the rights to the Taiwanese novel "Female Island" which he plans to adapt to the screen as his feature directorial debut.
