Daniel Drummond is an award-winning Brazilian writer-director focused on telling stories of social immediacy through compelling, exciting narratives.
He started out as an animator. His first animated film, “Chiaroscuro,” won a Student Academy Award in 2015, qualifying for the 88th Oscars and screening in international festivals such as Annecy and Anima Mundi.
With a burning desire to tell stories that spoke to difficult social and political themes, he transitioned to live-action and embraced a raw, verité style. His live-action debut, “A Foreman,” earned him a second nomination at the Student Academy Awards and played numerous festivals, winning a Special Jury Mention at the historic Guadalajara International Film Festival, and the Panavision Future Filmmaker Award.
In 2018, Daniel’s screenplay for “Salvage” was selected for the prestigious Short Film Station at the Berlin International Film Festival. The film had its World Premiere in competition at Cinequest, in March 2020.
He currently lives in Los Angeles, where he is developing “The Weight of Land,” his first feature. The film, a neo-western about a feud between two families stuck in a land dispute, has received support from SFFilm and the NALIP.
Writer currently has no listed scripts.
