South African born Daniel Levi has a background in creative design and his experience of the visual arts, multi-media and post-production sup- ported his transition in to directing. Daniel was featured in the Saatchi and Saatchi’s young directors showcase and won best new director at Kinsale. Daniel has directed campaigns for clients such as VW, HSBC, X-Box, Mercedes, Nike and Playstation.

Daniel’s music videos for Massive Attack, LFO, The Concretes and Plan B often come up on many all time best lists. In May 2004 LFO ‘Freak’ won the prestigious Music Video Production Association Award (MVPA) for Directorial Debut.

After taking a couple of years off to focus on his other artistic endeav- ours; painting, photography and design, he is now back in the director chair and his branded content film ‘Henry’ made in collaboration with Ogilvy & Mather and IBM received critical acclaim and debuted at the Vancouver Film Festival in the short film category even though it was made for a brand.

Daniel is currently in development for his debut feature film to be shot later in 2013.
