Meet a Funny Person:

Daniels

Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert

Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan, collectively known as Daniels, are a filmmaking duo you should know.

The two Daniels joined forces creatively after meeting in an animation class as students at Emerson College. Their absurdly funny, bombastic visual style uses uniquely choreographed animation and visual effects.

Whether they’re directing award-winning music videos for artists like The Shins, Passion Pit, Chromeo, and Tenacious D, or commercials for brands like Apple, Nike, Converse, and Levi’s, their work is often centered around movement, dance, and the strangeness of human bodies.

You may have seen their much-celebrated feature debut — 2016’s Swiss Army Man featuring Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe. The film, which they wrote and directed, is a weird, silly romp and won them the Directing Award at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.

As filmmakers, Daniels take the comedic sight-gag to new heights, crafting one-of-a-kind scenarios that are as funny as they are visually inventive.
