Upsweep was a University challenge in which students had to make a found footage horror film in a given location. Upsweep is Written, Directed, & Edited by Daniel and also plays the role of Adam in the film. The film sees two friends explore to take wildlife pictures for their photography class but they end up searching for the source of a mysterious noise.
Daniel is currently working on a short film with New York based animator Robert Bohn to create another socially aware film that tackles the subject of the morality of eating animals. His upcoming animated dark comedy is called ‘Spicy, Breaded, Honey-Coated Fingers’ and the animation style is inspired by old school Disney animations such as ‘Skeleton Frolic’. The film reverses the roles of the food chain and puts humans on the plate instead of animals. The film is set to be released later this year.
