Daniel Askill - Director
So I'm surprized there wasn't a thread for this guy. I read about him last year in Russh Australia and feel in love with his stuff, I hope to see more of him soon!

Apart from the article about him in Russh (which I'll scan later) I can't find much information about him.

Quote:
One of the most in demand directors right now is Daniel Askill. With his already extensive and impressive CV, which included collaborations with Dior and Alexander McQueen, as well as musical notaries Phoenix, UNKLE, Placebo and German dance music duo Digitalism, Askill caused the fashion pack to sit up and take notice when he paired up with Paris based designer Michelle Jank for her Australian Fashion Week Show in April with short film, ‘Suspending Disbelief’.

But despite all these successful adventures of these early collaborations it was Askill’s personal and most innovative project to date, a short film titled ‘ We Have Decided Not To Die ‘ that has made the biggest impact on Askill’s career. Winning The Public Jury Prize at the prestigious Clermont-Ferrand Festival in France.

He also worked alongside designer Hedi Slimane with some of Dior’s hottest projects where he was teamed with Jude Law to create the Dior Homme fragrance commercial which was shot from the outside of a helicopter! and directed Air Fance’s TV commercial.

He is said to be quiet about his current agendas but it is said that Askill is to be joining forces with his two brothers, Jordy and Lorin, to produce their first feature film…..
