Dan is a proudly working class, queer, neuro-divergent, disabled filmmaker living in the rural East Midlands. His most recent project as a writer-director is the BFI National Lottery funded queer council estate western short ‘Hope Ain’t Right’; a queer neuro-divergent council estate western exploring gender roles, attitudes towards disability, and the nature of love. A true western, ‘Hope’ treads a delicate line between reality and imagination. It’s also a step forward for representation in film as the director, DOP and lead actor all identify as being on the autism spectrum. Dan is a BFI National Lottery Early Development Fund recipient, and an EIFF Talent Lab 2022 alumnus.
In 2022 Dan joined Seahorse Films with his close friend and collaborator filmmaker Rebekah Fortune to develop a slate of film and TV projects exploring otherness, neurodivergence and working class life.
Collaboration is at the heart of everything Dan does.
