Dan B. Farr – Producer & Founder of Salt Lake Comic Con
Dan Farr is an entrepreneur, known for co-founding DAZ 3D, a 3D content and software company, and for founding Salt Lake Comic Con.
Dan Farr co-founded DAZ 3D Inc. in 2000. DAZ 3D is a company that develops and publishes 3D digital content and software for creative professionals and hobbyists. Two of the products Farr helped create while at DAZ were DAZ Studio and Genesis Platform. In 2005 Farr, along with his partners at DAZ 3D, created an illustrated Christmas book entitled Mr. Finnegan’s Giving Chest using DAZ 3D’s products and featured actor Dick Van Dyke.
Shortly after leaving DAZ 3D in the spring of 2012, Farr began planning Salt Lake Comic Con, a biannual comic book convention. Salt Lake Comic Con and its sister event, Salt Lake Comic Con FanXperience, are produced by Dan Farr Productions in partnership with Utah Media Group. With Salt Lake Comic Con taking place during the fall and FanXperience in the spring, Dan Farr Productions has been able to bring the radically successful, world-class pop culture event to the Intermountain West twice per year since 2013. The seventh event, Salt Lake Comic Con 2016, will take place on September 1–3, 2016.
Dan Farr lives in Draper, Utah with his family.
