Hi, I'm Daniel

ABOUT DANIEL

I love film-making, videography, taking pictures of EVERYTHING, and technology of every kind.
I’ll tell you where it all started. I was a little guy, about 4 years old. I was playing around the pool and my dad was filming me. I was totally amazed that I could watch the replay and “see me”!
My fascination with movies and videography has led me on a journey of learning and discovery… I love the magic of cinema.

Since I first held a video camera and discovered that I could record events as they happened, I have been overwhelmingly immersed in learning everything possible about film-making and the technology involved in the industry.
I studied for my Degree in Cinematography at AFDA (School of Motion Picture Medium and Live Performance) in Durban. This was the best place in the world for me to learn everything there is to know about film, AND interact with other people who share my passion!
I’m also a bit of a perfectionist, so you know everything has to be right!

What I Do

Film! Film! Film! It’s not just a job. It’s a passion. It’s a lifestyle.

Cinematography

Movie-making & Cinema is my first love. The rest is just detail. I recently attained my BACHELOR OF ARTS IN MOTION PICTURE MEDIUM at AFDA, Durban.

Videography

Between shoots, you can call me for corporate videos, product demo clips, or wedding videos ... almost anything you'd like to have recorded digitally. Just bear in mind that it's going to look like a feature film 😉

Colour Grading

As a Colourist I provide advice and creative input into the overall look of your production and ensure consistency throughout. I work closely with you to interpret your ideas through colour correction and the generation of artistic colour effects.

Film Editing

Editing involves more than just cutting screen time - I creatively work with the layers of images, story, dialogue, music, pacing, and the actors' performances to effectively craft a cohesive whole.

Sound Editing

By creatively adding together the various elements of dialogue, effects, and music I help to create believable sounds for everything you see on screen.

Photography

Photography is science, art, and a little bit of magic all rolled into one. More than simply creating images by recording light, my photographs capture memories encased in a moment.
