Daniel is a villainous knave who grew up in the jungles of Africa and the mountains of Nepal before attending Brown University and launching his film studio. With a penchant for adventure and environmental action, he's spent much of his career capturing expeditions around the world as a documentary filmmaker. He's tracked cartels along the rivers of Honduras, chased the elusive snow leopard through the mountains of Afghanistan, and rafted through the icebergs on unstable glacial lakes in the shadow of Everest. His films have been featured internationally at major conferences such as the Durban Climate Change Conference and international festival screenings and awards including the Banff Mountain Film Festival and International Wildlife Film Festival. You can check out his real-world alter-go at Skyship Films and Daniel Byers Photography.
When not in the field, Daniel has a particular love for crafting dark fantasy film narratives like Bloodyback and DungeonBros. He also applies his directorial skills in other such productive fashions as DMing Dungeons and Dragons and giving chilling and life-altering tarot readings.

Harry is a murderous rogue who grew up in Scotland and came to the US at the impressionable age of sixteen. After attending Brown University he worked on ships, on farms, in a haunted house, and dressed up in 18th century clothing as a costumed historic tour guide (in rain/shine/14 feet of snow). Now he lives in New York and mostly lazes around in front of his computer or the fridge, or goes to look pretty for a camera (in like a totally non-sketchy way). He likes fantasy/sci fi/speculative fiction, and social justice, and combinations of those things. He also owns lots of armour, which sure came in handy for making DungeonBros.
