Last year he directed a series of short films for TSB about comedians recounting their worst break-up experiences, which were recognised at the Campaign Magazine Media Awards.
In 2019 Dan has directed viral campaigns for Google, Tesco and Ben& Jerries, and most recently a Burger King TVC. His charity spot for BeCO with TBWA was awarded Campaign’s Pick of the Week.
