Daniel Johnson Films

I love films, but in a very specific way. Growing up, the directors I were passionate about were also writers. The likes of Charlie Chaplin, Billy Wilder, Woody Allen, Nora Ephron and Cameron Crowe. What makes their films stand out for me is that they're personal. In this day and age, it's harder and harder for filmmakers to have a personal voice. That's why I love independent film. The likes of the Jay & Mark Duplass, Lena Dunham and Richard Linklater have set the road map for low-budget filmmakers.

While some might rally against the gatekeepers of the industry, or feel they are being kept out - I feel a freedom. A freedom to be creative on any given day. That is the ethos of how I work and everything I do. Let's make stuff. What else is there to do?

It’s exciting to me that a few film festivals have deemed this experiment worthy of screening. ‘Mess’ (the new version) stars two of my favourite upcoming British actors, […]

What I like about your films is the lack of pretentiousness and the fact that they’re really, truly you. And in my mind: that’s high art.
