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.

Zachary is a bug-eyed brawler who runs Dakoit Pictures in Brooklyn, New York. Between training his infant daughter to be a killer assassin and editing fart compilations for Comedy Central TV, he likes bathing in swamp mud or dangling from cliffsides with a 30 pound camera strapped to his neck. Cross him at your peril.

Christian Masters is an [adjective Dungeons and Dragons reference] who was raised on a tropical island in the South Pacific, then spent his high school years in Uganda and Zambia. He is fairly confident that he attended Rhodes College in Memphis, TN where he played a lot of rugby. After that he worked on cruise ships, tended bar, and found out that moving around so often also taught him how to fake “fit in” well enough to pursue lying as a profession.
He currently resides in Atlanta, where he enjoys creating stories and worlds based on ideas that are not facts. He also restores and renovates historical buildings, and sometimes cleans toilets. Christian, who is me, is passionate about cultural issues and equality, and encouraging conversation about these issues... and he has found a voice to do so with the good people (and Harry) at Dark Tower Films.
