Emmy Nominated Daniel Stessen is a writer, director, and editor.
Stessen created the one of a kind, live-action/rotoscope-animation hybrid, DREAM CORP LLC, which was EP’d by “The Office” alumni, Stephen Merchant and John Krasinski. Dream Corp LLC ran for 3 seasons on [Adult Swim] where Stessen was both show-runner and director for all 30 episodes. Dream Corp LLC was included by the New York Times in their “Best TV Shows” list, earning the distinguished honor of The Most Outlandish New Show. It is currently streaming on Hulu.
Seasoned in practical effects, robots, and puppets, Stessen collaborated in the fabrication of THREE original creatures with the legendary Jim Henson Creature Shop. Today, Merchant and Stessen are in development at Bento Box Ent. with an animated Space-Western called, JEROME, which the two co-created.
“My goal with Miniac is to work with brands who trust the creative and defy the status quo.” Stessen says. “It’s a weird time to be alive – advertising should reflect that.”
Daniel currently lives and works between New York and Los Angeles.
