Daniel Askill is a New York-based Australian filmmaker and visual artist.

THE NEW YORK TIMES, who recently commissioned a Virtual Reality film directed by Daniel and starring Michael Fassbender, Benecio Del Toro and Charlize Theron, has described his films as ‘visually stunning’.

In 2001 Askill co-found multidisciplinary studio COLLIDER, which produced his multi-award winning short film WE HAVE DECIDED NOT TO DIE.

His work has been showcased at venues including PALAIS DE TOKYO PARIS, INSTITUTE OF CONTEMPORARY ARTS LONDON and the VENICE BIENNALE.
