What is your name/nicknames?
When my parents were mad at me, it was Stephen Daniel Valimaki. For some reason people keep calling me Danny.
How would you describe your position?
Jack of all video production trades
What are your academic credentials?
I graduated from MacEwan’s Design and Motion Image program in 2008.
What do you do in your spare time?
I love watching movies, learning new skills, building stuff, playing with LEGO, and practicing Jiu-Jitsu
Who or what inspires you and why?
Nature, movies, and nature in movies. Also friends. They’re alright.
Who would play you in the movie of your life?
Either Ryan Gosling or a young Chevy Chase. I can’t even count how many times I’ve been told I look like them.
How many five year olds could you take in a fight?
I don’t mean to brag, but all of them. You just need to take out the ring-leader and a few more. The rest will be demoralized. Does this make me a bad person?
Do you check for monsters under your bed every night?
They check for me over the bed every night
Where would you time travel and what would you do there?
Can I travel into the future? That’s where I’d go. I want to see flying cars and robots and spaceships. Either that, or go back to prehistoric times and mess with cavemen.
