About Daniel

I'm a filmmaker.

I produce a variety of projects ranging from music videos, commercials, live events, through short and feature films. As well as sharing my experience by lecturing in film at Manchester Met University.

I've worked with some of the (nicest) and best corporations and agencies including the BBC, ITV Studios, Channel 4 and more. I've been lucky enough to be in a few of the UK's biggest festivals, and the last short is currently showing in cinemas across the country. Which still amazes me!

Feel free to take a look at my current projects, and get in touch if you like.
