Looking for dark and meaningful? Bizarre fiction with a fractured but gorgeous fairytale look? Humor with no pretense or restrictions? You have come to the right man - Daniel Frei. Nice to meet you.
Born from a long line of Swiss-Swedish creatives, I always felt at home in the world of the imagination.
I studied audio engineering, later film and music composition in New York. I briefly worked for Christie's Fine Art Auctioneers as well as some internationally renowned contemporary art galleries.
My life in entertainment started in fiction film at David Brown's (e. g. 'Jaws', 'The Verdict', 'Driving Miss Daisy'), continued on to documentary work. I created, produced, shot, edited, and line-produced non-fiction projects and reality TV shows in the US and Europe. My own (service) production company was designed with a focus on branded content but has evolved into the creation of long format fiction.
This journey has made me not only technically savvy as a multi-hyphenate, but a well-rounded creator always hungry for a new challenge.
The beauty with film is that all art forms can be integrated into the final creation. I think projects that accomplish this deliberately transcend themselves into incomparable pieces.
I currently spend my time between the USA, Europe and China, being fortunate to have learned some of these regions' languages (English, German, French, Italian, Swedish and Mandarin.)
Come, create with me, go deep, have fun.
