Aussie mates, Steve Beck and Dael Oates started their creative journey in Sydney, at the Oscar winning animation studio. It was here Dael and Steve’s thirst for storytelling, animation and the power of memorable characters was instilled into them from working alongside other talented artists creating world renowned animated films.

From there, Dael became an award winning Commercial and Short film Director and Steve an award winning Head of Animation, at some of the top studios in the world.

However Dael and Steve’s true passion is to tell their own stories, and so they joined forces as Directing collective, Left Shoe Lost.
