Daniel Kragh-Jacobsen directs narrative films, music videos and commercials, and has done so for more than 10 years. His work often exhibits a feel for the complexities of youth: narratives that capture small human moments, but seem to arrive there without pretence or effort.

He studied directing at the American Film Institute Conservatory (class of 2013), where his graduation film, "Turtle", gained him a shortlist for the Student Academy Awards.

Daniel was one of the founders of new—land, with whom he has collaborated on several award winning commercial projects, most notably The Family, which won one Gold Lion at the Cannes Advertising Festival in 2016.

More recently, Daniel directed the short film "Next Stop", which was nominated for a Danish Academy Award for Best Short in 2019. He has also written and directed two seasons of the youth web series Crazy Summer.

In 2019 he also released the celebrated commercial, "The Lift", for Bianco Footwear, which won several awards across the advertising world, most notably two Bronze and one Silver Lion at the Cannes Advertising Festival in 2019.

In 2022 Daniel directed four episodes of the Danish bluesky-crime series “The Summerdahl Murders”, which is in its third season. He is currently working on the dark youth comedy series “Helga Gets A Life", which is set to premiere in early 2023.
