Development Producer — Sydney
They call him 'Kaiser'. Perhaps because of his Germanic appearance, perhaps because of his penchant for precision. See more »
He's often to be found in dark rooms with soft glowing monitors. He's got 6 years of experience as an online editor, colorist and offline editor, having delivered broadcast content for the major Australian networks, as well as online material for several leading bands and brands. In the last two years, he's been let out of the edit suite for stints as a producer and cinematographer. In his spare time he writes and directs shorts, makes music videos and drinks espresso. He also likes film theory, but don't tell anyone he's a geek.
The first time Dan was sent into the field with a camera, he was run over by a wild pig in the jungles of Vanuatu — his cries of terror made the cut. Since then he has kept himself behind the lens while directing and field producing prime-time television for the past five years in Australia. See more »
From following paramedics on the job, to directing helicopters over Sydney Harbour, Dan has taken his wealth of production experience and waded into the Development world at Quail Television's LA office. He has taken a liking to LA boutique beer and weather, and has found his Vanuatu jungle experience good preparation for the LA freeway experience.

On the night that I was born, the heavens roared and thunderbolts hammered the earth in a symphony of ominous portent. Clearly I was meant for great things. See more »
My destiny began to take form when I was selected for my high school football team as a substitute goalpost. My achievements in sport were record-breaking, though not in a good way. Sadly, I was kicked off the debating team for agreeing with everybody.
In 1981 I went to the Australian Film, Television and Radio School when I got lost en route to the Cheltenham Cribbage Club. I refused to leave, so three years later they gave me a Diploma of Arts (Film and Television) or "D.A.F.T."
Since then I've edited lots of stuff, mostly documentaries. And I've chalked up several editor/writer/producer credits such as Tribal Wedding and Crossing the Ditch (aka 62 Days at Sea).
My hobbies are clapperboard maintenance and growing cucumbers. My favourite colour is beige.
