The Daniels

You may be surprised to hear that The Daniels (aka Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert) got off to an inauspicious start. "We didnít really like each other at first", says Kwan - but now they canít be separated. Given they share directing, VFX, and editing duties, itís good theyíre finally on the same page.

Itís hard to predict what Daniels will do next, and therein lies their strength. So far theyíve experimented with storytelling via fifteen-second Instagram clips, web browser films, and even cast fellow Daniel - Harry Potter's Mr Radcliffe - as a corpse in their debut film feature.

Apple iPhone
"Fly Market"
Apple take a stylish approach to advertising their latest iPhone X innovation - paying with your face. While we can see the potential issues with the technology, this film makes the whole process look cool as hell. A suave hipster takes his local flea market by storm, clothes and accessories flying onto him just as soon as he fancies them.
