From a single step we began.
Dart Entertainment & Creative (DEC) Projects is the brainchild of founder Daniel Dart. As the famed author Malcolm Gladwell posited in his book Outliers, "Ten thousand hours is the magic number for greatness." Daniel began his ten thousand hours as a child selling candy out of his backpack between classes in elementary school. His entrepreneurial spirit paid off when years later he started his band Time Again. They would go on to tour the world numerous times, building a legion of loyal fans along the way and gaining a cult-legend status.
Having conquered the world as a singer and band member, Daniel then moved on to become a successful film composer & recording studio owner working on feature films such as Get Him to the Greek ft. Russell Brand and Stepbrothers ft. Will Ferrell, among others. He then expanded his horizon to the more business side of things representing record labels in Television & Film, licensing and master catalog distribution. Having gone through all the fields of entertainment and learning along the way the challenges that artists and creators dealt with daily, Daniel transitioned into the management world, and eventually into the global change making space. For it was shortly after launching DEC that, through a chance conversation about criminal justice reform, Daniel's experience as a formerly-incarcerated individual led him to become involved in seeking systems change.
Using his entertainment skill set to shift cultural narratives, he developed robust platforms - and it didn't go unnoticed. As he set his sights on building projects in the most improbable places, he quickly found himself working alongside some of the most prominent organizations in the world. Understanding the power of the media and creative industries as a vehicle for social impact, DEC expanded their scope to apply their capabilities in working to tackle numerous challenges around the world.
DEC Projects is the culmination of those ten thousand hours. And, with a team of like-minded individuals, we share that knowledge, experience, and grit with our diverse range of clients. Whether it's developing, managing, producing, supporting, consulting, or communicating projects across various industries and geographies, we have the tools and know how to generate and achieve the desired results, and create culture-changing impact.
