Dániel Szőke is a Hungary-based Director of Photography.
While he was watching Raiders of the Lost Ark at age 10, it struck him that the camera was moving. In that moment, he decided to become a cinematographer.
Since then, he has worked on several short films, music videos, documentaries and commercials for companies such as HBO, KFC, Taco Bell, Facebook or Heineken. He has won the Promax Award, the Creative Craft Award, the Golden Eye Award for Best Hungarian Cinematographer, and several international film competitions like the Toxic Film Festival, Maniatic Int’l Film Festival, and Short to the Point Film Festival.
His main focus is narrative filmmaking. Besides his DoP work, he regularly takes on second unit DoP and B-cam operator gigs. His list of credits includes American, Croatian, German, Indian, Norwegian and Romanian productions. His first feature as DoP is currently in preparation. He loves experimenting with all kinds of genre and technique. His strength lies in his conscious consideration of visuality and his method.
