Daniel Calderone is a filmmaker and creative producer from Toronto who is obsessed with the art of film and consistently keen on developing his skills as a storyteller to creatively and culturally enhance cinema.
In 2020, he made a breakthrough in the film industry without any formal film education by becoming the founder and CEO of NinetyFour Productions Inc., which is a Toronto based production company dedicated to filmmaking, videography, photography, marketing, and social media distribution. Over the last decade, he has collaborated with independent filmmakers, professionals in the industry and assisted in various film and music video productions across Toronto and LA. Daniel has further expanded his creative ventures with the organization by operating a remote podcast called Corner Talks where industry professionals discuss their career successes and failures. Over the course of his brief tenure, he has had the privilege of acquiring and collaborating with notable clients including renowned entrepreneur Tom Bilyeu at Impact Theory in Los Angeles and a prolific Toronto comedian named Neema Naz. He is currently working as a creative producer for a YouTube food travel series called Beyond The Blade under the cutting edge culinary company called Dalstrong.
I am a graduate of the Ted Rogers School of Management program at the Toronto Metropolitan University where I pursued a Commerce Degree in Marketing Management. In the process of studying at TMU, I stayed true to my interest and enthusiasm for cinema. In doing so, I have written four feature length screenplays and several other shorts in the last three years. I have shadowed notable film directors as a production assistant, working on several projects including one with famous rapper Torey Lanez, all in my attempt to better learn and understand the process of filmmaking from behind the scenes. Furthermore, my obsession with movies have led me to work for the Toronto International Film Festival as a marketing distributor, Warner Bros. Canada as a publicity and promotions coordinator, and Entertainment One as a theatrical film marketing coordinator. I am currently working as a creative producer for a YouTube food travel series called BEYOND THE BLADE under the cutting edge culinary company called Dalstrong.
The stories I have written and the content I created as seen on my Youtube channel, highlight my strengths in creativity and my passion for cinema. Professors, teachers, and colleagues who have reviewed my style of creative writing and video content have praised me for thinking cinematically. However, I still recognize that in what I create there is always room for improvement and I am eager to pursue any which way to make it my best work possible.
My philosophy has always been to leave behind a legacy no matter what it is he chooses to do in his life. Filmmaking has always allowed him to explore his imagination and creatively tell the stories that have the potential to inspire lives. There are many renowned filmmakers including my hero the film aficionado himself, Quentin Tarantino, who have been immortalized by cinema because their art has become an extension of themselves. I believe those who are able to recognize my philosophy, are able to help me realize my dream.
