Dan Sokolowski

August 28

Dan Sokolowski designed What's Up Yukon from 2005-2007 on dial up internet in Ottawa.  Dan really put our little magazine on the path to having a fully virtual office.  An exceptional magazine designer who worked at lightening speed.

Dan then left us for his dream job! 

He became and is still now the producer of the Dawson City International Short Film Festival.  Dan shares his knowledge with others on film making, animation and studio arts.

In addition to creating his own films, Dan has worked on over 40 independent productions as cinematographer, animator, assistant director, lighting director and editor.
