Director Dan DiFelice, who’s been repped by Biscuit Filmworks since 2016 for spots and branded content in the U.S., has now joined the company’s U.K. roster.
DiFelice thus gains continuity in representation via Biscuit on both sides of the Atlantic. He had been previously handled in the U.K. by Pulse Films.
A self-taught filmmaker, DiFelice learned the crafts of motion graphics, visual effects, design, and editing early on in order to get his own ambitious short film projects off the ground – including Finished, The Great Unknown, and Anomaly (co-directed with Salomon Ligthelm) which was named a Vimeo Staff Pick. DiFelice’s most recent commercial campaigns include work for Volvo, Nike, Audi, Reebok, Ubisoft, Jordan, FOX Sports, and BMW; he was also selected for the Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors Showcase at Cannes in 2016 for his short film Carved in Mayhem, and then earned a slot in SHOOT’s New Directors Showcase in 2017.
Rupert Reynolds-MacLean, managing director at Biscuit UK, said, “Dan’s background in VFX and his elegant, beautiful storytelling sets him apart as an original voice in the market.”
Biscuit Filmworks is an international commercial production company founded in 2000 by managing director Shawn Lacy and director Noam Murro. Directors on the Biscuit roster include Murro, DiFelice, Aaron Stoller, Andreas Nilsson, Big Red Button, Christopher Riggert, Clay Weiner, Daniel Warwick, Errol Morris, The Glue Society, Isaiah Seret, Jeff Low, Joaquin & Lalou, Justin Kurzel, Matt Devine, Michael Downing, Molly Manners, Olof Lindh, Rachel McDonald, and Steve Rogers.
