Daniel
Scheinert

As one half (with Daniel Kwan) of a filmmaking duo known as Daniels, Scheinert scored a surprise hit with “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” a surreal comedy-drama about a Chinese immigrant laundromat owner (Michelle Yeoh) facing an IRS audit who suddenly finds herself flung into a multidimensional battle to save the universe. Released in March, it went on to become indie producer and distributor A24’s highest-grossing film to date, earning more than $100 million worldwide. ­Scheinert and Kwan first made a name for themselves directing music videos, most notably their comically profane clip for DJ Snake and Lil John’s “Turn Down for What,” and went on to write and direct the absurdist black comedy “Swiss Army Man” (2016). In August 2022, the duo and producing partner Jonathan Wang signed a five-year deal with Universal.
