About Vi-Dan Tran

Vi-Dan Tran studied filmmaking with main focus on directing, storytelling and cinematography. During my studies, he also worked as a stuntman for tvshows and feature films like Into the Badlands season II, Skyfall, Cloud Atlas and Agent47. Having a profound wushu/ martial arts background he had the chance to work as an action designer for the chinese film company China Star in Hongkong (2013/14). In 2016 he jointed the Jackie Chan Stuntteam and worked on the action choreography and action-previs of the new Jackie Chan movies The Foreigner and Bleeding Steel.

2017 he is a official member of the 8th generation of the JC Stuntteam.
Since 2015, he has been working as director and cinematographer for tv commercial and music videos for Universal Music/Sony Music in Germany
