Meet the creative team

Our Media Lab instructor David Daniel Hosannah is a filmmaker in the Albany area. His background is in costuming and writing for film and television. He has a Broadcasting & Cinema and Screen Studies degree from SUNY Oswego and is now applying his studies and professional experience to teaching. Having worked on various films for Hulu such as Miguel Wants to Fight (2023) and Prom Dates (2024), He strives to enrich the learning experience by creating lessons and projects that stem from his on-set experience.

For the past 22 years I’ve worked in TV, commercials, films, and more, ranging from small budget to international blockbusters. This work has aired regionally and nationally in the form of television broadcast commercials, theatrical trailers, webisodes, and industrial insider material.

I directed cinematics for the Activision video game series Guitar Hero, and video promotional material on Skylanders. I pitched TV concepts to Warner Bros, Cartoon Network and other American television producers. I worked directly with talent like Tyler Perry, Brent Spiner of Star Trek fame, and Bradley Cooper. I received an award for a STEM educational video I coproduced for President Barack Obama. I was recently commissioned by TEDx to produce a TED-Ed video.
