Daniel Levi (b. 1973 – Johannesburg, SA) graduated with honours in painting from Michaelis School of Fine Art at UCT in Cape Town (1996). He was raised in Johannesburg in a liberal home by parents who exposed him to politics, psychology, philosophy and the arts from an early age. He currently lives and works in Cape Town. Levi has a background in creative design and his experience of the visual arts, multi-media and post-production supported his transition into directing. Daniel was featured in the Saatchi and Saatchi’s young directors showcase and won best new director at Kinsale. Daniel has directed campaigns for clients such as VW, HSBC, X-Box, Mercedes, Nike and Playstation. Daniel’s music videos for Massive Attack, LFO, The Concretes and Plan B often come up on many all-time best lists. In May 2004 LFO Freak won the prestigious Music Video Production Association Award (MVPA) for Directorial Debut. After taking a couple of years off to focus on his other artistic endeavours; painting, photography and design, he is now back in the director’s chair and his branded content film Henry made in collaboration with Ogilvy & Mather and IBM received critical acclaim and debuted at the Vancouver Film Festival in the short film category even though it was made for a brand.
