DANIEL J. PIERCE, Filmmaker Bio
Dan Pierce Ramshackle Pictures is owned and operated by Daniel J. Pierce. Daniel graduated from Simon Fraser University with a BFA in film production and screenwriting. His undergraduate film, In Transit, received a warm response from audiences at VIFF 2008. He got his first taste of docs while working on the series Monster Moves up in northern Quebec. He gave up this gig to pursue a rare and bizarre opportunity to cover the restoration of the iconic Hollow Tree in Vancouver. The Hollow Tree premiered at DOXA 2011 in Vancouver and was broadcast on CBC Documentary and Knowledge Network in 2012.
