Daniel Myrick - A native of Sarasota, Florida, Myrick was raised within the cultural enclave of Long Boat Key where his appreciation for the visual arts continually evolved. Not long after graduating with his BA, at the University of Central Florida film program, Myrick created the "The Blair Witch Project" where he was co-writer/co-director. Considered a seminal work in low budget, filmmaking, TBWP ushered in a new methodology of production and grass roots marketing that is still being utilized today.
Seeing the story telling potential in the web, Daniel was also responsible for producing one of the first online, scripted series back in 2007 entitled, "The Strand". Starring Kathrine Helmond, James Morrison with a featured appearance by Kevin Smith. This trail blazing dramatic series was met with rave reviews where it was featured on the KoldCast network.
Shortly afterwards, Myrick wrote and directed "Solstice", starring Amanda Seyfried and Shawn Ashmore which shot in and around New Orleans. This soon led to a partnership with Tony Krantz (EP on 24) and John Shiban (EP on X-Files) to oversee and produce six films under their Raw Feed label for Warner Brothers Home Video. Their flagship production, "Rest Stop", became Warner Bros highest selling, non theatrical, video release at the time.
Myrick then went on to write and direct the sci-fi thriller "The Objective", shot in the Berber villages of Morocco utilizing current and former military personnel comprising most of the cast. It was soon accepted by the prestigious TriBeCa Film Festival for its world wide premiere, eventually being picked up by IFC films.
More recently, Myrick wrote and directed, “Under the Bed”, a “Hitchcockian” thriller shot in Salt Lake City, starring Hannah New (‘Black Sails’) and Beverly D’Angelo (‘Vacation’) in partnership with Radar Pictures and Appian Way. It premiered on A&E/Lifetime and a sequel is in the works.
Myrick’s latest feature project is “Skyman”. A sci-fi/docudrama about a man that claims he was visited by an alien when he was ten years old. Now as an adult, he’s convinced that this alien will be returning and this film will be documenting every his journey. The film is currently in wide release.
Myrick is also CEO of Gang of Robots, Inc., a California media production company and has recently opened a studio in the Tampa, Fl area at www.thepower-station.com where he’s currently developing several online, television and feature projects that cover a wide variety of genres the latest of which is the new "Black Veil: Tales of the Southern Gothic" online series at www.blackveilonline.com.
