I have big ambitions to help you realise yours! And a huge part of what I do is to make sure that I am equally happy with the scenes as you are and I am committed to providing the best service I can.
Here are a few of things people have said about working with me:
"I was hugely impressed by the whole process with Dan. From initial consultation to writing, filming and editing the scenes, Dan was incredibly professional, understanding and committed to producing the best possible outcome from our work together. Dan takes great pride in his work and immediately puts you at ease throughout what can be a stressful and time sensitive project. I 100% recommend Dan to fellow actors looking to increase their portfolio of screen work. Thanks Dan!"
- Steve Shirley
" As a stage actor I was really nervous about the filming process but couldn't have asked for a better experience. My scenes were brilliantly written, I'm over the moon with the results and Daniel really put me at ease. He was very patient with me throughout the whole process, super chilled and he helped bring out the best of me on camera. He also put up with my endless emails and questions so very grateful for that!"
- Francesca Elise
"On the set - and before and after the shoot - he is friendly courteous and engaged - ready to listen but also with great ideas of his own. I look forward to working more with him. Thoroughly recommended"
- Simon Furness
" It was such a wonderful experience from start to finish and I couldn’t recommend Daniel enough. I am so impressed with the final results and have received very high praise from everyone that has seen them since. I’ve had a couple showreel scenes shot in the past, and based on my experience, I can say that Daniel is easily the best at what he does. A true professional and a very talented filmmaker."
- Rebecca Baker
"I have shot a few scenes with Daniel over the years and every time he really listens to the scene I want and the kind of role I want to portray. He captures those characters in his writing so well and the shoot days are always so fun! He's very professional and the final edit always impresses whoever I show."
- Cerys Knighton
" Daniel is a consummate professional who made the two day shoot fun whilst producing top quality videos. Not only is he superb with the camera work, sound, lighting etc. but he is a thoughtful and inspiring director. And to cap it all off he's a brilliant editor too - and he really puts in the time and effort to get to know his clients, and their needs, to ensure a successful shoot. I really can't recommend him too highly
- Matt Avery
"Daniel was quick to respond, communicative and incredibly helpful. The scripts he wrote were perfect for my sons’ playing ages and he was so supportive of both of them - they had not had experience in front of the camera before. The final edits were superb and sent within 72 hrs of our filming. Before sending the final edit we received lovely behind the scenes pictures and screen shots of the scenes. The feedback so far on the two scenes has been fantastic and we will definitely be using Daniel again! Thank you!"
- Kate Cropley (on behalf of Max & Leo)
" I cannot recommend Dan highly enough. From the outset he was professional, responsive, and flexible and wow, is he quick, but never rushed! Everything, from start to finish, has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience ... On filming days Dan was prompt, professional, engaging and made the whole process fun whilst keep everyone “on track”, a very enjoyable weekend ... Delighted. I'd give 6 stars if I could. Thanks Dan"
- Aurea Williamson
"Getting a new showreel is a big decision and something you want to get right. I cannot recommend Daniel enough. He was so approachable, professional and a skilled film maker. The scenes he wrote were varied, he listened to what I wanted and gave plenty of time to film. I even got my scenes back the next day! So impressed."
- Sophie Ormond
"Very professional lovely guy who managed to get the best of the 5 of us involved in 3 scenes filmed in 3 different places. Wonderful with kids and adults alike!
Very highly recommended!"
- Merry Merrymead
(Brier-Rain & Monty's Mum)
"I needed a few edits made to my existing showreel and couldn't be happier. I've used several other companies in the past to add a few scenes but I was really impressed with what Dan did. He managed to cut around scenes to really favour me and give me more screen time and it was great to have an outside eye to choose the right scenes to show my range and current castability. But the one thing that really impressed me was the speed in which he delivered my showreel back to me. Highly recommend!"
- Lucy-Jane Quinlan
"Just had my edited scene. Wow - just, WOW. 4k, great action/tracking shots, looks amazing, sounds great, and a very classy edit - this isn't "a couple of angles and you're done" - this is a really accomplished reel that I'm very happy indeed to be showing off myself with. Cheers, Daniel!"
- Tom Dussek
"Absolute pleasure working with Daniel. Professional, warm and friendly. Really helped me get the perfect scene I needed for my showreel and I can not recommend enough"
- Steve Larkin
"I couldn't be happier with the results of the scene. It was such a relaxed and friendly atmosphere on set and Daniel was very professional. Knows exactly what he's doing. Even more amazing was that we received the finished edit mere hours after finishing the shoot! Very highly recommended!"
- Ben Cooper
“Daniel was very easy to work and take direction from. There was no sense of being rushed, Daniel actually took the time to get the best from me. Very professional but easy to work with. The turn around from enquiry to finished product was unreal. Daniel is clearly very efficient and productive.”
- Haydn James
"Hiring Daniel to make my complete showreel was so easy and a joy. I was in contact with him constantly right up until shoot day to make sure I had all the relevant infomration. The shoot day itself went very smoothly. As a person, he's easy to chat to, made me and my scene partners feel comfortable. He also gave some direction to help the scenes along. Daniel went above and beyond to make this process easy and effective. I now have a great new complete showreel and I'm very happy! Thanks Daniel!"
- Elizabeth Chadwick

"Dan's direction and cinematography is second to none. He brought out the best in me and kept getting me to analyse the footage to see if I was happy and the choices I was making were correct. All in all ended up to be a great scene and by far my best showreel scene to date."

- Joshua Plummer
"Shot a scene with Dan a week ago. I was so impressed with how fast he works and the level of professionalism. Not only did he write a killer scene for me and my buddy he had the whole thing shot and edited in the same day! Highly recommended and cant wait to work with him again"
- James Stallwood
"Daniel was brilliant from the first contact, discussing options and possibilities, and was very flexible around my ever changing needs. On the day he made sure it ran smoothly and that we arrived at each location in plenty of time. All of the actors agreed that he created an atmosphere where you felt happy and relaxed enough to explore different possible performances, and he was open to ideas we wanted to try. The scenes that he sent back were edited to an extremely high standard and I was amazed at how fast they came back and the quality of the footage. "
