Danny is an ambitious entrepreneurial film maker and business man who’s turning a few heads in the industry.

A five year plan that will include a serious attempt at winning an Oscar with one of his short films.
The unique and innovative aspect of Danny’s journey is the way in which he is sharing every step of the journey via his blog, Twitter and YouTube channel. He’s also the first short film maker in the world to host a regular live internet show, an open, honest account of his progress. Danny also has 17 years experience working in radio as a broadcaster and also runs a well respected video production business.
He has built quite a following over the last twelve months, with people from all over the world who are finding his journey and willingness to share both inspirational and an education.
"I asked Danny if he would like to do a guest lecture for the Moving Image Production students at University Centre Doncaster, about working in the industry and raising finances to produce a low budget movie. Our degree students found Danny to be friendly and approachable with a wealth of inside information on how the business actually works. Some students have even been given the opportunity to work on his next short film ‘Love Like Hers’. Danny is organised, knowledgable and a great inspiration to all budding film makers. I have no hesitation in recommending him to businesses for media production work, or to training providers to deliver workshops for staff/students."
