Midlands Spotlight on lighting camera operator Dan Hunt
This week on our Spotlight we check out Midlands-based lighting camera operator and cinematographer Dan Hunt.
With over 10 years' industry experience, Dan specialises in corporate work, commercials and branded content.
His previous projects include shooting international advertising campaigns, music videos and gigs for Top 40 artists, broadcast TV, award-winning shorts and a cinema-released feature film.
Dan’s career started way back with a first class BSc (Hons) in Film Production Technology, This was closely followed by the formation of Warped Noise, a production company specialising in music videos and live events.
From this Dan says, “I learned valuable business skills, which enabled me to refocus my efforts into becoming a successful freelancer working for companies across the UK and Europe”.
Always on the lookout for more opportunities with Midlands filmmakers and beyond Dan has plenty of camera experience. “I have my own kits but am equally comfortable shooting on a wide range of cameras including Arri, RED and Black Magic Systems. I'm also a highly skilled Movi and Camera Crane operator”, says Dan.
With travel being one of Dan’s biggest passions he says he’s been lucky enough to combine this with filming assignments in India and Tanzania. Afterwards, Dan undertook a three-month tour of European film festivals for a documentary project.
When he’s not filming Dan takes time out to indulge his hobbies including snowboarding, photography and (of course) movie buff!
