OLIVER DALY (Director, Writer) is making his feature debut after writing and directing the short film Miles.

Daly grew up within walking distance of Palo Alto's Stanford Theater, a meticulously restored 1920s movie palace. During the most awkward years of his childhood, he wouldn't miss the theater's weekly double features of Hollywood classics. In particular, he was fascinated by the scientific ideas and emotional weight of his favorite monster films: Frankenstein, Island of Lost Souls, Forbidden Planet and The Terminator. After seeing Jurassic Park on the big screen, he became obsessed with the hyper-realities made possible by digital cinema. Daly began working with animated graphics as soon as his computer was capable of displaying them. His passion for animation stems from the medium's constant technical innovation and its ability to entertain while communicating powerful, complicated and otherwise impossible-to-realize ideas.

Daly graduated with a B.A. in art and semiotics from Brown University. He also studied animation at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). Daly began his career creating 3D biomedical illustrations of the human body, a topic in which he finds endless inspiration. As he built a successful business in the arena of scientific animation, his interest in narrative film also grew. This led him to make the 2015 short Miles, with Robby Rasmussen in the title role.
