Darcy Thompson was born in New York City, in 1997, to a stage actor and a social worker. He grew up in quiet New Jersey town and has now moved back to New York in his 20s pursuing film directing.

In his own body of work, he has focused mostly on science fiction shorts. Growing up watching everything from Planet of the Apes to Red Dwarf, it's a realm of fiction that intrigues him deeply. The genre provides an outlet to discuss human nature that simply isn't available in more traditional dramatic storytelling.

Darcy has also worked many freelance gigs from PA'ing on The Meyorwitz Stories, to directing corporate videos. In the future, he'd be excited to try his hand at directing small commercial work and breaking into doing visual effects work for larger entities.
