The Mercadantes have developed a personal form of filmmaking with astonishing intimacy and breathtaking visual style. They have worked primarily with non-actors to capture their subjects and their stories. The duo’s shorts and spots reveal beauty in the everyday, playing with lines between documentary, fiction and experimental cinema.
Made of directors Daniel and Katina Mercadante, the duo has directed acclaimed spots and branded films for Apple, VW, Levi’s, Netflix and Chevrolet. They were nominated by the DGA for Best Commercial Director as well as a Gold Lions at Cannes, a Young Director's Award at Cannes, and a Clio.
