His latest project DEAD & BEAUTIFUL premiered at IFFR in early February 2021 and also screened in the Netherlands at the Imagine Film Festival, Film by the Sea and the Netherlands Film Festival, where the film received a nomination for best Production Design (Elsje De Bruijn). The film screened in Dutch cinemas and was shown at festivals worldwide, both regular festivals and genre festivals; such as Sitges and Fantastic Film Fest.

David has been involved part-time as a director on a major Taiwanese video game (Silent Hill), an interesting and also logical step in his career. The steps he is currently accumulating in terms of storytelling, how to connect with the audience and technical knowledge in terms of visuals and motion capturing are highly relevant to the realisation of THE WOLF, THE FOX AND THE LEOPARD.
