About Danny

Veteran motion picture Director, Cinematographer, Editor and Screenwriter based in Toronto Canada.
Network Television Journalist (CNN & CBC)

For over 30 years I have worked in all facets of fiction motion pictures, documentaries, advertising and television production.

If you're looking for a Cinematographer/Editor I am a veteran award winning Cinematographer who owns a full Red Digital Cinema Camera package, sound and lighting equipment as well as a full Adobe Creative Cloud (all apps) Editing Studio


If you need a Director I will guide your project from script to screen efficiently and with style giving you the biggest bang for your movie making buck. My Directing is informed by my many years as an Editor and Cinematographer guaranteeing you'll get the coverage you need in post. My specialty is making low and medium budget projects look like big budget projects. I am able to work quickly while still retaining a high quality product. Also, I am familiar with all the jobs your production and technical crew are doing, having done most of them myself at one time or another.



So, whether you are a first time filmmaker or a veteran, my rates as a Cinematographer, Director or Editor are super flexible and can be tailored to suit your budget. If you are a Writer, Director or Producer, let's talk.
