Production studio ArtClass Content announce the addition of filmmaker Daniel Russell for directorial representation. 

Characterized by highly energetic camera work and immersive production design, Russell’s innovative and stylised films exude a unique bravado that captivates audiences and defines culture. Known for bringing out the best in on-camera talent, Russell’s collaborations include a who’s who of music’s most notable personalities, including Missy Elliot, Justin Timberlake, SZA, Cardi B, Khalid, Ty Dolla $ign, Saweetie, and Normani, to name a few. 

Early in his career, Virginia-born Russell became the protége of legendary music video director Dave Meyers, quickly blossoming under his tutelage. Russell’s music videos have now garnered millions of views worldwide and earned him recognition from music and lifestyle publication The Fader as “the next big name in music videos.” He has also brought his bold, distinctive style to projects for top global brands, including recent commercial campaigns for Pepsi, Ford, Samsung, and Human Nation. 

Russell says, “I’m proud to call ArtClass my first commercial production company home. Their team has an incredible ability to deliver so many exciting creative opportunities, and to fully support the process of making great work. I love that they are so accomplished in the commercial space, and the deep experience in music and culture that Kirsten Arongino brings to the table. It’s a dream team for sure, and I can’t wait to see what we make together.”

“We’re very excited to have Daniel on board,” adds ArtClass Managing Partner, Geno Imbriale. “Simply put, his sensibilities are perfectly matched with what we do here and we see a tremendous potential for growth together. We’ve been fans of his eye-catching and refreshing work for a while now, and we are beyond excited to see what he can do with the full force of ArtClass behind him.”
