While still in college, he gained attention with three award-winning short films: In Life We Soar, Any Creature about a young girl who witnesses a mysterious car accident, and Unloved. Unloved earned Daughters the $20,000 Grand Prize Award at Nintendo's Eternal Darkness film contest in 2002. He started directing music videos in 2003.
