I have worked with Daniel in several capacities before (as colleagues at the same agency, as a client using his agency, and as a client working with releases on his distribution platform) and always found him to be an effective digitally-focused marketer. His passion for film ensures his dedication to projects and his clear and creative thinking ensures that campaigns he is involved in are always interesting and effective. These factors, plus the friendly and enthusiastic way he goes about his business, mean that I would very happily work with Daniel again in the future.
— Philip Hoile, Head of Distribution, Bulldog Distribution
Daniel possesses a rare mix of creativity, an understanding and interest in data, and the ability to translate findings to inform campaigns and educate colleagues. During his time at Think Jam he was able to use and adapt these skills in implementing social campaigns for a variety of clients and products. His proactive attitude meant he was comfortable independently manage large multi-platform campaigns, whilst thinking creatively to provide solutions for smaller products. These skills paired with the fact that Daniel a joy to work with would make him a great addition to any digital team.
— Teague Emery, Director of Social, Think Jam
Daniel worked on the UK theatrical release of The Hippopotamus. His understanding of the social media/digital landscape was invaluable. It’s a fast moving, changing part of the film industry, offer many exciting opportunities, but it’s also mind-boggling, and it requires someone with Daniel’s experience to navigate the numerous channels. On an independent film release like ours, with limited budget, a well thought through digital strategy is essential. It’s how to most effectively reach your audience. And I’m pleased to say our release had a wonderful start online, thanks largely to Daniel’s efforts.
