My name is Danny Cooke, I work as a freelance film Director, Editor & Cinematographer. Here is my showreel.
If a project is too big for an individual, I have experience in directing a team of people and the film’s protagonists. As a director, I have a first-hand understanding of the roles of the cinematographer and editor which helps achieve the best possible outcome.
Cinematographer & Lighting Cameraman
As a cinematographer, the image is the heart and soul of the film. I operate primarily on a RED Camera, but have experience with a large array of camera systems from DSLR up to high end systems such as ARRI. I also have additional support kit, such as 360 motion control rigs for dynamic time-lapses and experience with steadycam or MoVI, DJI Ronin gimbal rigs.
I operate a DJI Inspire 2 Drone/UAV with 5.2K Camera and RAW Cinema DNG or ProRes capability. I am Licensed; CAA approved and a qualified pilot (upto 7kg), holding a BNUC-s Theory and RPQ-s Flight Assessment certificates. View my Aerial showreel here.
Editing can make or break a film. It is the key to an emotive piece that can connect with the viewer. I have editing experience with basic colour correction from tv and web commercials to documentary or music videos. Whilst using the Final Cut Pro or Adobe CC suite, my system is able to edit and view 8k content natively. Essential for high-end delivery.
