Daniel Myrick Net Worth $2 million

Myrick graduated from the University of Central Florida School of Film. Prior to his big breakthrough, he was gaining popularity locally, shooting and editing projects for companies based in Florida, and in addition shooting music videos. Subsequently he worked for the Florida Film Festival in 1997, setting the ground for his big upcoming silver screen breakthrough. In 1999, he wrote and directed ‘’Blair Witch Project’’ alongside Eduardo Sánchez, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, and the commercial campaign was intriguing. After its successful premiere, Artisan Entertainment went on to buy rights for its distribution. ‘’Blair Witch Project’’ was praised publically and critically and grossed over $248.6 million at the box office, on a budget for the movie of $22,000. It soon became a cult movie and inspiration for other ‘’found footage’’ types of movies. As the result of its massive success, Daniel made a name for himself, and went on to make ‘’Curse of the Blair Witch’’, a documentary explaining the disappearance of three students in strange circumstances. Another similar project was ‘’An Exploration of the Blair Witch Legend’’, also successful, Myrick made a sequel to the original movie in 2000 entitled ‘’Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2’’, but movie didn’t live up to expectations, and was poorly received scoring the total of two out of five stars on IMDB; nevertheless, it earned $47.7 million at the box office, and Daniel’s net worth was still rising.

Although Myrick’s genre of choice is horror, he made an exception directing ‘’Believers’’, a 2007 thriller, but it received mediocre reviews too, scoring a total of two and a half out of five stars. In the following year, Myrick returned to horror and directed ‘’Solstice’’, receiving mixed to positive reviews, and the same year he went on to create ‘’The Objective’’, following the same genre, but its premiere in Morocco received mediocre to negative reviews.

In 2015, he was a guest star on ‘’20 seconds to live’’, a successful horror comedy show, then in 2016, Daniel launched a campaign called Indiegogo Campaign for Docu‐Drama ‘Skyman’; the main goal of the creative team behind this campaign was to reach $25,000 and provide the creation of a UFO themed movie. As of 2017, Myrick directed ‘’Under the Bed’’, a movie about the stalker who took up residence under his victim’s bed, and based on true events.

In his private life, Myrick is believed to still be single. Unsurprisingly he is known to be a big film fanatic, stating that he looks up to cult horror movies such as ‘’The Exorcist’’ and ‘’Rosemary’s Baby’’ when he’s creating new movies. Daniel and his colleague and co-writer of ‘’Blair Witch Project’’, Eduardo Sánchez, are good friends and have established a successful partnership since they went to the film school in Orlando together.
