Biography

Daniel Vega

Sometimes I have asked myself what brought me to the stars, to the discovery of new planets and hopefully new civilizations, to become an astrophysicist. Well the answer is very clear, on the one hand the books of Asimov and P.K. Dick that populated the bookstore of my brother. And on the other the Cosmos series by Carl Sagan which I conveniently toasted in my old Beta system video recorder. My goal now is clear. Use video and storytelling in its multiple formats to plant seeds in the heads of the new generations that at some point may germinate and turn them into great scientists or engineers who would build the warp engine and take us out of this solar system. I have been working in the science&nature documentary world for the last 10 years. My roles in this world has been diverse. From camera operator, screenwriting, direction and production. My stories have been broadcasted by the most popular channels such as National Geographic, Discovery, Turner, France 5, DW and many more. Currently I keep working on a couple of TV series, one about travel and the culture around wine (6th season) and other about forest rangers around the world (pilot finished and looking for financing). For the last year I have been exploring fulldome productions for planetariums, gathering contacts, learning and thinking for my chances to direct a series in fulldome.
