Santa Monica, CA, December 15, 2014 -- colleen., a modern management company founded by agent, coach and business development consultant Colleen Dolan Vinetz, has signed cinematographer Dannel Escallon to the agency's roster for exclusive commercial representation. 

Escallon was the DP on a Disney PSA entitled "Make Your Mark - Ben Horowitz," which earned a 2013 Daytime Emmy Award. During the past few years, he has served as a DP on numerous music videos, commercials and documentaries, working with such major stars as Flo Rida, Chris Brown, A$AP Rocky, Miguel, and Rod Stewart, and such noted directors as Erik White, Sylvain White, Constellation Jones, Cameron Duddy, Sophie Mueller, Colin Tilley, Isaac Rentz, and many others.

Colleen Dolan Vinetz said, "I have been watching Dannel for over a year now, and I've seen his work develop beautifully. I am excited to partner with him and to help create the next phase of his career, which promises to be very successful."

Adds Escallon, "I met Colleen about a year ago through a mentor of mine, and she has been kind enough to give me great advice since then. She has admired my work, saw how I was progressing, and expressed interest in representing me. I liked her game plan and felt a really good connection with her. She and I have a similar ideal of how we see the world - I'd say we have the same aesthetics. Our working together simply feels like the right fit."

About Dannel Escallon:

A native of Miami, Florida, Dannel Escallon relocated to Los Angeles to attend the LA Film School.

For the past four years, Escallon has enjoyed the benefits of being mentored by these two men, and has worked steadily on many music videos, commercials and documentaries.

Escallon's work in 2011 on music artist Flo Rida's music video "Good Feeling," helped to establish the young DP's name in the industry. Since then he has worked on music videos for such major stars as Flo Rida, Chris Brown, A$AP Rocky, Miguel, Rod Stewart, Serj Tankian, Pacific Air, Kitten, Wallpaper, and many others. In the area of commercials, Escallon served as DP for projects promoting Bayer, Lenovo, Comedy Central, ABC Family, SkullCandy, and more.
