“Anthem Jackson directs with some gorgeously muted tones that compliment this beautifully lonely song by Colin Cowan & the Elastic Stars to a T. Cleanse that soul. Cleanse it with fire.”Ion Magazine
“Paul Anthony and Cam MacLeod are a couple unraveling in this melancholy bit of heartbreak, which climaxes with the eerily beautiful visual of fiery mannequin heads bouncing down stone steps.”CBC
The video for Brasstronaut’s track “Hawk” does more than reference Maud’s original film. Turning Pink into a catalyst for a series of creative re-interpretations by 20 different artists from all different mediums.BOOOOOOOM
“Daniel Code directs the accompanying video, which dramatically re-paces a darkened homage to The Karate Kid. Slow-motion is utilized to great effect, bringing dramatic visual elements to each scene.”Beatroute Magazine
“Graham Kew captures a sun-kissed roadtrip for Twin River’s second single Settle Down. Shot on camcorders, it centres on the bond between two women as they travel through the Netherlands in a VW campervan.”Pomo News
“Anthem Jackson directs this new video from Light Organ Records’ chanteuse Louise Burns. Great locations, great use of the super slow shots, and above all, a great story about a very brave little girl!”Scout Magazine
Daniel is a wellspring of unique and often comedic ideas for stories and visuals. Never one to settle for the current trend, he draws on his background in live comedy and social activism to write and create films.
His recent credits include co-producing the award-winning feature film, Kayaking to Klemtu, producing the feature documentary Whoa Canada and producing & casting for the hit PUP music video for their song Guilt Trip – notable as one of Finn Wolfhard’s very first experiences acting. He’s also worked alongside the members of The Yes Men and the Yes Lab for their latest project featuring Edward Snowden and directed David Suzuki for a promotional climate change campaign. Some of his creative contributions have been showcased in the Kunsthal Charlottenborg Museum in Copenhagen and the Moma in New York.
Sometimes he doesn’t know where he fits in as a filmmaker but he loves to move in the direction that feels most rewarding creatively and socially. He is well versed in skills as a director, writer, and producer and has worked in high-pressure environments in many different circumstances. He likes to divide his time between making compelling documentaries and directing weird or comedic scripted films.
From working both on set and in post-production, Graham is well-versed in all sides of filmmaking. His years of experience editing documentary laid the foundation of a strong story-sense and an ability to collaborate.
Graham’s most recent credit for television is editing and story producing the new AMC series, “Robert Kirkman’s Secret History of Comics.” Narrated by Keri Russell, his episode, “The Truth About Wonder Woman,” delves into the complicated and unorthodox life of the comic book’s creator, William Marston. Featuring Patti Jenkins, Lucy Lawless, Michelle Rodriguez, Phil Jimenez, and of course, the iconic Lynda Carter, the episode was part of AMC’s new Visionary Series.
Graham has filmed in countries across Europe and Asia, and was a part of the WETA Mo-Cap team on Spielberg’s The BFG. Next up, is a documentary on a major American standup comedian. It’s this mixed bag of experience in the biz that gives him a strong handle on how to approach each new project, from script to screen.
