Daniel Robert Cohn

SMB v2 white on blac2k.png

As a filmmaker, musician, artist, animator, actor, and photographer, Daniel Robert Cohn thrives when expressing through creativity. So when the pandemic hit and the entire world was quarantined, let's just say Cohn felt "right at home." With production shut down globally, no actors, no crew, no locations, and a world that seemed to have gone completely NUTS, the temporarily out-of-work filmmaker looked to his immediate environment for inspiration... what he found was the ultimate authority on nuts... Squirrels!

 

This energetic, comical cast of characters found in his own backyard were not only accessible, enthusiastic and photogenic, but they literally worked for peanuts! Cohn's creative mind went into overdrive, writing and recording an anthem song for 2020 called "The World's Gone Nutz" and creating an epic music video to go with it. Setting up green screens all around his house, building human-sized squirrel hands, and stretching the bounds of digital compositing software, Cohn created an entire world of squirrels that uncannily reflects just about every aspect of our current times... and most importantly, gives us all a much needed laugh.
