Echos of Enlightenment by Daniel J. Coplan

  • Synopsis

A magical realism thriller about a wife’s search for her missing husband, Daniel. You see, every day, somewhere in America, a middle aged man leaves his home and his family, and never returns. Alternating between droll humor and the psychidelic, the film explores both angst and enlightenment, in a fascinating journey of breathtaking vision, mysticism, human passion, all ending with a remarkable discovery!

  • Director

Mr. Coplan started making movies when he was 14 years old. One of his early films "The Incredibly Awful Dr. Sporgo" won the Silver Medal at the 1974 Atlanta International Film Festival and Golden Image Certificate at the 1975 Long Island International Film Festival. Before graduating high school, he also wrote, directed, produced and starred in another short film "Of Mirrors, The Mind, and Time". This film, a psychological thriller, was presented at the Kracow International Film Festival in 1975.

He attended and graduated from the prestigious NYU Film School, where he was mentored by Department Head, Haig Manoogian, who was also Martin Scorsese’s mentor.

In 1975 he wrote and produced the half-hour documentary "The Dream Factory" which featured appearances by Sean Connery, Gloria Swanson, Marlo Thomas, Roy Schieder and was narrated by Eli Wallach. This film is now part of the permanent cinema collection of the Museum of Modern Art, NYC, NY.

After Graduating from NYU Film School, Mr. Coplan was employed by The Walter Reade Organization, then the foremost chain of movie theatres in Manhattan, as a Theatre Manager. Mr. Coplan spent three years with this company, during which time he developed a very keen sense for predicting the commercial success of individual motion pictures.

While still employed by the Reade Organization, Mr. Coplan was also engaged on a freelance basis to provide consulting services to CBS Entertainment in New York City regarding the analysis of prospective literary material for the possible TV Movies. Mini-series, and/or Series.

Mr. Coplan has studied acting with the noted actress Nina Foch, ("The Ten Commandments", "Spartacus"). His film and TV performances include “Stageghost,” “The Dragon Gate,” “The Man In The Iron Mask,” and the upcoming mini-series “Dawn Of Our Nation”. His stage performances include LA Weekly’s Picks of the Week “Little Women,” and “Man With No Shadow” He has also studied directing with Jim Pasternak and recently directed the critically acclaimed one act play “The Author’s Voice” at The Complex in Los Angeles.

Echos Of Enlightenment mark’s his feature motion picture directing debut.
