About Daniel Kremer

San Francisco filmmaker Daniel Kremer has provided audio commentary tracks for Kino Lorber, Shout! Factory, AGFA, and Scorpion disc releases, and essays for Twilight Time special editions. His acclaimed epic-length film Overwhelm the Sky (2019), adapted from a 1799 American Gothic novel, was screened internationally in classic  roadshow format, complete with overture, intermission, and printed souvenir programs.

He is currently under contract at Oxford University Press for the first book about Joan Micklin Silver.
