Award-Winning Director Daniel J. Pico

Daniel J. Pico has been a filmmaker nearly all his life making his first movie at just 8 years old.  Pursuing his dream, he attended film school at Columbia College Chicago, where he received a BA in film directing and screenwriting.  He has directed two theatrically released feature films, “Common Senses” and “Farewell Darkness,” which won three best feature film awards on the international festival circuit.  Additionally, Daniel has directed more than 85 short films, music videos, commercials, and documentaries, including 11 episodes of several popular TV and web series, garnering over 40 awards and nominations for his work.  Daniel is the founder of Pico Blvd Entertainment film and TV production company dedicated to independent cinema. He is currently developing a third feature film, an adaptation of the critically acclaimed play “Wounded” by award-winning playwright Kerry Kazmierowicztrimm. We are very excited about this project.
