About the Director
Dylan Habil is an ambitious storyteller. He cuts his teeth on telling authentic and compelling stories. His visual style is bold and gritty.
In 2018 he received his first TV credit as an art director for the drama series This Is Life.
Dylan was in Eldoret in his early adult life, where he built his name in the streets, shooting for some of the region’s known creatives. Following in the steps of his undergrad film school coordinator Bii Cosmas, he moved out of the Nairobi creative space in 2019 to continue creating premium content for premium brands and organisations. Dylan has collaborated with some of the biggest names in the wildlife and natural history world: Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Ami Vitale, Flora and Fauna International, Helping Rhinos, WildAid, the DODO, African Wildlife Foundation, and Well Aware, just to name a few.
Dylan has been fortunate to be part of the team documenting the efforts to save the northern white rhinos from extinction by the German Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research (Leibniz- IZW), Dvůr Králové Zoo, BioRescue, and Kenya Wildlife Services. These documentaries have been featured in media outlets such as Reuters, Al Jazeera English, FRANCE 24 English, VOA News, and Kenyan media houses.
With his sights set on the future, Dylan Habil is currently in prep for his debut feature. Dylan founded ALLDAY STUDIOS Inc. in 2018. It is a creative collective specialising in a distinctive point of view of storytelling.
