Shahir Daud is a writer/director who was born in Fiji, grew up in New Zealand, went to college in California and now lives in New York. He loves all things cinema, and hates talking about himself in the third person.
As a filmmaker, Shahir's work ranges from sharp character profiles to visually striking music videos. His short films have played at over twenty international film festivals and received numerous awards. He first garnered international notice making parkour videos, which scored millions of views online and kickstarted his commercial directing career. He is also an award winning editor, motion graphics and visual effects designer.
His two most recent projects include "La Loteria", a Spanish language short film based on the true story of how he and his wife were married, as well as "Cymatics" a collaborative music video with musician Nigel Stanford based entirely on real scientific experimentation.
