Daniel Beals is an accomplished writer, director, producer. He has written and/or directed several successful short films, spec pilots, and promotional material for companies including Defy Media, Ubisoft, Atom.com, and Strike.tv. He got his start writing the spec pilot, NIGHTMARE SLAYERS, for Ariescope Pictures and horror director Adam H. Green. Prior to that moment, Daniel accrued experience working in production, including a rewarding stint as assistant to director James Gunn for various internet shorts.

He is currently developing his feature directing debut, a dramatic thriller titled THE CRIMSON POOL. Starring Jim O’Heir in a dramatic role that’s guaranteed to turn heads, The Crimson Pool is a battle of manipulation and wills between two writers at very different stages of their careers, both vying for acclaim that neither of them think they can earn on their own. An investment package is currently being prepared. 


Daniel’s latest short film, INCUBUS, a psychological horror story, won in the Suspense/ Thriller category at the 2018 International Horror Hotel Film Festival. Just prior to that, he directed a promotional comedy video for popular YouTube channel “The Warp Zone” that spotlighted Ubisoft’s then-impending video game release, Watch Dogs 2. That video has accumulated 5.5 million views since it went online. 


In addition to numerous short film scripts that he’s looking to produce—JUSTIN TIME (think: “Back to the Future meets Harry Potter”) was a semi-finalist in Hollyshorts’ 2015 Screenwriting Competition, and real-life war drama THE FORCE OF THE SUN was a quarterfinalist for that same festival in 2018—Daniel is fast at work on two additional feature scripts to follow the completion of production on The Crimson Pool. 


Daniel resides in Los Angeles, CA. No matter what his next project is, it'll sport the nom de guerre that he received from the sage-like owner of a comic store he worked at in high school. Daniel's next film will be:
