Profession: Film director



Daniel Scheinert was born on June 7, 1987 in Birmingham, Alabama, USA. He is a director and actor.


In an April 2022 interview with Ben Flanagan of AL Dot Com, Daniel Scheinert said that the Birmingham-area schools he attended as a child were Oak Mountain Elementary and Oak Mountain Middle School in Shelby County, Alabama, and the Jefferson County International Baccalaureate School, located on the campus of Shades Valley High School.


Kwan and Scheinert met while they were both studying film at Emerson College in Boston. They went to college with Sunita Mani, who starred with Kwan in the music video for "Turn Down for What", which Daniels directed.

Since 2011, the duo have directed music videos for artists including Foster the People, The Shins and Tenacious D. In 2018, Kwan co-founded the group We Direct Music Videos (W.D.M.V.), described as "a global community of music video directors who are committed to sustainable directorial labor practices".

In 2016, the duo expanded to feature films, writing and directing Swiss Army Man, starring Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe, which received positive reviews, as well as the duo winning the Directing Award at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.

Daniels have since accumulated several television directing credits, including Awkwafina Is Nora from Queens, Legion (Kwan only) and On Becoming a God in Central Florida (Scheinert only). Daniels were attached as directors on a prospective TV adaption of Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut, being developed by Noah Hawley, but the project was not picked up.

The duo announced in 2017 they would write, direct and produce a sci-fi film, with their producing partner Jonathan Wang and the Russo brothers. Everything Everywhere All at Once, starring Michelle Yeoh, Stephanie Hsu, Ke Huy Quan, James Hong and Jamie Lee Curtis, was released in March 2022 to widespread critical acclaim.

As of 2022, Daniels have signed a first look TV deal with A24. The same year, they also signed a five-year film deal with Universal Pictures.

Daniels were on the Time 100 Next list in 2022.
