Dayburn New York is a production company specializing in short-films and branded shows in beauty, hair, fashion and luxury markets. It was founded by Director Charlie Wan and Producer/Show Director Kendall Nash merging film with event production.
Charlie Wan / Director
Charlie Wan believes his work should provoke emotions from his audience whether they are commercial or passion projects. A former beauty photographer and art director in motion graphic design, Wan has worked on projects including broadcast graphics for MTV, VH1, Syfy, concert visual graphics for The Rolling Stones and stage floor visual design for The Who’s Superbowl Halftime show. After 10 plus years in the motion graphic design industry, he leaped into the world of fashion, hair, and beauty, focusing on live-action and event direction.
With the all-too-common late-night hours in his previous post-production life and the tiresome mentality of “fix it in post” from clients, he opts for all-in-camera optical effects for his films and visual work. He loves the magic and simplicity of the through-the-lens aesthetic, not an easy task to be replicated with long hours of post-production and visual effects.
Kendall Nash / Producer & Show Director
Starting her career working in PR and Events for a contemporary women’s clothing brand, Kendall Nash produced a range of events including shows, presentations and press activations. She eventually took over the Sales Director role in addition to her PR and Events responsibilities. Kendall was then recruited by a music venue as Director of PR and Events where she focused on building revenue, branding, visibility and special events.
In 2011, Kendall branched out on her own and formed Kendall Nash Productions, consulting with brands and producing events/shoots/shows. She also started a project called KNB Global with DJ and artist, Ben Brunnemer, specializing in music activations within large scale productions.
