Testimonials


Daniel as Director

“Since first being cast by Daniel back in 2014, I’ve now had the pleasure of working with him on a further five short films since. His dedication, communication and overall talent are second to none. The rehearsal time he allocates is wonderfully helpful and I’m a big fan of his writing. He knows how film works and is an excellent director. I look forward very much to my next project with Daniel.”
– Actor Neil James (Cupid, The Missing Hand, Toast and Two Pound Forty Pence)

“I worked with Daniel in early 2015 on the short film “Cupid” in which I played the lead along side Neil James. The process from start to finish was relaxed and professional. Daniel had a clear framework for the shoot, yet we also had a freedom to explore the work, characters and the comedy of the piece. Working with Daniel was definitely invaluable ammunition for my showreel, and above all the beginning of a new and exciting creative partnership.”
– Actor Kate Goodfellow (Cupid, Killer Bird) 

“I worked with Daniel on a short film in 2014. He was brilliant, very professional with high ambitions but a realistic attitude. Great to work with, articulate at getting his point across to get the best out of his performers. I would work with him again in a heartbeat.”
– Actor Steve Sipple (Ring Ring, Killer Bird)


Daniel as 1st or 2nd Assistant Director

“Daniel was a very diligent, reliable AD who showed no signs of stress on set and was very good at getting things done. It was a very ambitious and stressful shoot but Daniel tackled all challenges head on and took the pressure off me as a director so I was able to focus on what I needed to do. He was able to anticipate how long setups would take and very good at rescheduling as we went to make up time. I highly recommend Daniel as an AD and would work with him again in a heartbeat.”
– Director Radley Mason (Lili)


Daniel as Editor

“Daniel was a dream to work with. At all times professional, efficient and clearly possesses a sharp eye for detail. I was pleased to see that he came with his own creative ideas for the project, but that he was always attentive to the vision and demands that we had for the project too.”
– Writer/Producer Adele James (That’s What She Said)

“Dan edited a short film about loneliness for us and it was a pleasure to work with him. He is a proficient and fast editor and has a great set up with a large Mac and the latest editing software. He understood our vision for the film, which made the editing, which can be a long and sometimes arduous process, much easier. Because he is a film-maker himself, he has a good understanding of all the elements of film making. And he was patient, helpful and considerate; great qualities for this business. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dan to other producers.”
