MEGHAN DANIELS

DIRECTOR

A remarkable young voice in filmmaking, Meghan is a bit like a mad creative scientist. Fundamentally human-centric, their films are infused with a boundary-pushing aesthetic that is cinematic yet raw, tactile and honest. As a multidisciplinary creator, Meghan has their finger firmly on the pulse of street culture with an acute focus on the intersections of documentary, fashion, music and art – All of which pours into cutting edge work for brands like Adidas, Nike Global and Youtube and culture platforms like Boiler Room and the Fader.

FELIX SEUFFERT

OWNER / DIRECTOR/DOP

Felix likes to get to the bottom of things, be that quantum physics or a creative brief. And that’s why he sees a film in his head long before the camera turns over. A versatile director, he has a way of connecting deeply with actors and non-actors which lets him tell stories with warmth and humanity. Trained as a photojournalist and established as a cinematographer, his aesthetic is both authentic and cinematic. And yes, he’s a stickler for details. Like, in a good way. He’s born German but he’s really a child of the world.

SANDULELA ASANDA

DIRECTOR

With signature irreverence, Asanda discusses subjects that are sensitive but long overdue for the mainstream discourse. Like, show of hands: Who made a film about the trials of female masturbation?

That and her critical eye and eclectic storytelling equip her for commercial work for forward-thinking brands with something to say.
