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

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 storytelling 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 small corporate videos. In the future, he'd be excited to try his hand at any commercial work or creative endeavors on a yet larger scale.
