Fundamentally, my passion is to make films. Because filmmaking isn’t simply what you see on screen, it is what’s beneath that is important. As an aspiring creative practitioner I aim to show you the world you haven’t seen, the unspoken stories, the unspoken truths that lay beneath the surface.

That is my goal.

I learnt invaluable knowledge about the film industry through the A-Level Film Studies course at Uckfield College which has prepared me for the career I wish to pursue; going from topics such as the Golden Age of Cinema to the application of American politics in film. I am currently studying Film and TV Production at the University of Reading. Studying both theoretical and practical modules to fully prepare me for the industry.

I have been lucky enough to be a part of a dozen work placements from my own extra-curricular work to recent ventures into feature length productions as both first and second camera assistants. I have delved into the many roles of film and television through the Director; Producer and Writer, however, through my projects I have begun to find a love for cinematography.

Currently working on my final University project, the short horror film, set in the 1980’s, focuses on three teenage friends who get tangled with a deadly serial killer that prowls the streets of their town…

I currently use a Canon EOS 5D Mark IV camera in conjunction with a DJI Ronin-S Gimbal stabiliser to film my own work. I further use Neewer’s 43 Inch Light Reflector, Manfrotto Tripod and other apparatus.

To edit, produce and advertise my work through social media, I use Final Cut Pro on a MacBook Pro.

I am always on the lookout for opportunities to widen my expertise in filmmaking – whether that is to direct, produce, writer, or shoot a script.

Much love, Dan Lupton.
