Jonathan Wang is a Taiwanese-American film producer best known for Swiss Army Man (2016) and Everything Everywhere All at Once (2022). He is the long-time producing collaborator of the director duo known as the Daniels (Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan). Wang began his career in music video production and later pivoted to feature films with his debut feature Swiss Army Man, which won the Sundance 2016 U.S. Dramatic Directing Award. Since then, he has produced multiple feature films, including Everything Everywhere All at Once, which has become A24’s highest-grossing film of all time, and for which Wang won the Academy Award for Best Picture.
Daniel Kwan has been writing and directing for over a decade as a part of the duo DANIELS with Daniel Scheinert. They got their start with a slew of viral music videos, commercials, and short films, before breaking into the feature film and TV space.
They’ve developed a reputation for combining absurdity with heartfelt personal stories. Oftentimes they incorporate a unique brand of visual effects and visceral practical effects into their genre-blending projects. They wrote and directed the feature film Swiss Army Man starring Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe, which went on to win the Directing Award at the Sundance Film Festival, received multiple nominations, and gained a large cult following. Their new movie Everything Everywhere All at Once, a kung fu sci-fi dramedy starring Michelle Yeoh, has received multiple award nominations and wins this past year, including the DGA Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Theatrical Feature Film and 11 Academy Award nominations.
Most recently, Daniel made his publishing debut with a pair of children’s books released by A24, which explore existentialism and time travel. I’ll Get to the Bottom of This! and 24 Minutes to Bedtime! are available now.
