    Dan works with you from the ground up to craft a showreel that is completely unique and tailored to your needs. His scripts are always of the highest quality, and he’s completely open to conversation if things need clarifying or don’t work in a particular scene. Filming days are a pleasure, and the end result is polished and beautifully edited, while keeping at its core the most important thing to showcase-your work as the actor.

    Daniel does amazing scene writing work, they're very cleverly written and have quick wit. He also directs the scenes to make sure he gets the best out the actors and keeps the set atmosphere fun, relaxed and creative.

    Daniel, is such a pleasure to work with. From the start, to the end of the process, you get a very professional yet caring service that is tailored just to fit you. Daniel takes the time to meet and get to know you so that he can write scenes that are appropriate to your casting type and your personality. Not many showreel services do this! Daniel creates scenes that are natural and focus on the drama between the characters rather than looking cinematic with fancy sets or costumes. On the day of shooting, there's a relaxed and encouraging atmosphere between all involved. No need to be nervous at all. I did have to wait a few weeks to get the final edited showreel but I had mine done just before Christmas and New Year so this was understandable. The quality of the final product was worth the wait.

    I was really happy with my showreel. Dan writes bespoke scripts after a face-to-face consultation. He creates little snippet scenes that are perfect for capturing your best moments. Dan is a detailed director who helps fine tune your character choices. He gets very busy so make sure you book in advance :)

    Daniel creates your personalised scripts, creatively directs them and exquisitely edits it for you. If there was anything I wasn't sure about, or wanted to change Daniel was extremely flexible, and was always available to have a discussion. He created a dynamic, engaging and extremely comfortable environment to work in. From beginning to end, working with Daniel was incredibly fun and professional. Creating my showreel couldn’t have been easier. I am really happy with it, and can’t wait to work with Daniel again.

I cannot thank Dan enough for his hard work, encouragement and passion.

    Daniel is a genius. He created my reel from scratch, wrote three very different scenes tailored specifically for me that were gritty, comedic and mature. I never thought I could have such a versatile reel showing a range of looks, acting ability and casting - but I have. I had a great laugh and enjoyed the whole process of the reel and I am one very happy client ready to further my acting career.

    Dan was and is an incredible guy. The job he does must be difficult, as when he dealt with me I was nervous and unsure of myself, never having done a showreel before. But after an initial call on Skype to chat about myself and what I wanted from the reel, I quickly relaxed and opened up to his calm, cool and friendly approach. He kept in regular contact about scripts, appointments and how the day of filming would go down. When I finally arrived at the location, he was right on time with the first of my co-actors. After a brew and a chat we began rehearsing the scene and then filming. He offers excellent direction with out ever being judgemental or condescending, as he only wants to get the best out of you for yourself and for him. All the actors he employs to help shoot the reel are friendly, highly skilled and professional. After the end of the shoot (where he also bought me lunch) we discussed the next steps before I made my way home. Just a few short weeks later dan had edited and delivered my showreel which looked fantastic and has already helped me generate ten times the interest in my looks and abilities than before I had the showreel. I will be returning to dan for more scenes in the future!

    I am so glad I got Daniel Johnson to create my showreel. His bespoke scripts were spot on, as were his casting, directing and editing skills. My showreel was ready in a reasonable time frame and at a fair price. All this and he's also a genuinely nice guy!

    I highly recommend Daniel Johnson who wrote me 3 original scripts, which I think sum up the type of roles that suit me and this after just 40 minutes of a chat in his office.

    Inspired by the recent passing of his unsung war hero grandad and very relevant to my own circumstances, Daniel Johnson came up with this masterpiece....I hope I do it justice.

    I had received cheaper quotes and ones closer to me but looking at Daniels site and previous testimonials I decided to go with the expense. It was worth it. Very professional, accommodating and fun. At every stage he checks you are happy with the work. The scripts are tailored to what characters you can/want to portray. He films in different locations for each scene. Edited to a professional standard and he checks that you are happy with the final edit before delivering. All I can say is first class service.

    "Daniel was recommended to me by another actress who shared not only was he super-talented at editing showreels but that he also does a great job writing material for you if you need to bulk it up. I employed him for both and was super-impressed. He is very professional and you can trust he will produce you a great showreel as he wouldn't have it any other way!"
