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 pour 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 mainstream discourse. Like, show of hands: who else has written and directed a comedy about the trials and tribulations of female masturbation? With instinctive writing and performance-directing, she’s a hot talent to watch out for in the narrative world. That and her critical eye and focus on contemporary storytelling means that she’s a director for forward-thinking brands with something fresh to say.
