Dan Mace, the founder of JOE Films has made his mark with the release of ‘The BRU Show’ that recently got launched on Discovery+ catching everyone’s eyes and soon becoming a smashing hit. Film Director, and long-time YouTube star, Dan Mace has brought about a fresh style to the more ‘traditional’ TV format in episodes that are short, punchy, and packed full of filmmaking knowledge laid out in extremely creative ways. He is rated one of the top 6 young film directors in the world by Shots magazine.
The BRU Show has been released in 12 parts showcasing a glimpse of some crazy stunts and enormous film sets, all helmed by Mace from turning a box truck into a giant rolling camera to answering the question “What is Happiness?” with a hundred people from across the globe. The artistic, imaginative and creative side of Dan landed him over 783,000 subscribers and around 35 million views to date leaving the audience with pretty wild adventures like making a musical out of New York’s street sounds or flying his ex-boss to Afrikaburn by helicopter.
Big-name YouTube stars like Logan Paul and Casey Neistat – who recently released a documentary on influencer David Dobrik – also appear throughout the episodes. They join Dan in his escapades and offer valuable wisdom about what it means to be ‘Creative’. “I’ve decided to pour every ounce of creativity, combined with a hell of a lot of planning, and develop a twelve-part show. The final chapter, if you will.”, Mace explains in his video ‘The beginning of the end’.
“In this show, I do everything I’ve always wanted to try. Everything I’ve never had the resources or time to attempt. Everything that’s now been made possible by [partnering with] discovery+. I really want to go out with a bang”, adds Mace.
Mace is also challenging the mainstream media by releasing each episode of ‘The BRU Show’ on his own YouTube channel just a few weeks after its launch on discovery+. This step by Mace has allowed anyone to enjoy his show even if they don’t have access to discovery+. Throughout his professional journey, Dan has won many accolades including 3 Young Director Awards at Cannes Lions, an African Crystal Film Grand Prix, Bronze Loerie Awards, Ciclope Africa Editing Craft awards, and the Creative Circle ad of the month award.
