Sunbeam is the creative collaboration of real-life best friends Dean Fleischer-Camp and Nick Paley. Dean is the New York Times-bestselling author and director who created viral sensation Marcel the Shell with Shoes On. Nick is an Emmy-nominated filmmaker who has directed for Broad City and Inside Amy Schumer. Together, their work has won an armful of awards at festivals all over the world. Their partnership is powered by a love of awkward comedy, Magic Mike XXL, and moments of quiet sweetness like when a dog gets up to get a drink of water. Adweek called their Clearasil spots “brilliantly counterintuitive” and “awkward-comedy gold.” They met at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts where they were hapless marks in a fraudulent scheme known as NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. Today they are deeply in debt and would like your help in achieving solvency. Thank you.
