Biscuit Filmworks today announced two new signings to its directorial roster: Daniel Warwick for representation in the U.S. and U.K., and Laerke Herthoni in the U.K.
“Daniel and Laerke are accomplished filmmakers and storytellers, each with a unique visual style, and we’re very happy to welcome them to Biscuit,” said Rupert Reynolds-MacLean, Managing Director, Biscuit UK. “Laerke is one of the most exciting young directors to emerge in the last few years; her mixture of car work and atmospheric narrative filmmaking is very impressive. Daniel is a perfect fit for Biscuit and feels like he should have always been with us. Over the last few years he has firmly established himself as one of Europe’s preeminent comedy directors – he’s also one of the funniest people I’ve ever met.”
Daniel Warwick is a bold director who deftly balances curated art direction with surreal comedy. Born in England and raised in the U.S. and Germany, his comfort across cultures gives him a unique insight and chameleon-like ability to craft memorable work for any market. His award-winning commercials include Smart “Yellow Car,” Mercedes-Benz “Chicken,” and Das Handwerk “The Way of the Master,” which collectively earned recognition from Cannes Lions, D&AD, Clio, Epica, and the Art Directors Club, among others. Daniel also possesses deep technical knowledge of his craft ranging from camera and lighting choices to art direction.
Laerke Herthoni is one Scandanavia’s top talents, twice named as Sweden’s best director by Roygalan and nominated as Europe’s best director at the Young Directors Awards. She is known for her strong narrative-driven spots, which blend intimacy with cinematic visuals for universally compelling stories. Her work such as Trygghansa “Don’t Drink and Dive,” Georg Jensen “You Can Never Be Too Much You,” and Volvo “A Peace of Little Mind” have earned multiple awards from top shows including Cannes Lions, The One Show, and the LIA Awards. Laerke was recently featured in HuffPost alongside Kathryn Bigelow, Ava DuVernay, and Susanne Bier as a barrier-breaking filmmaker.
