Daniel Johnson

Screenwriter and Director

Acting Showreels from Scratch

I create showreels from scratch for actors. I pride myself on producing exactly what each actor needs to showcase their talents. I write unique and original scenes for EVERY showreel. I have never used the same script twice, and have never used material that isn’t completely original. I am based in London, but can also travel across the UK and Europe. Your scripts will be original – created solely to capture what makes your acting talents shine.

The very week my reel was filmed, edited and uploaded onto my spotlight is the same week I was called in for a BBC drama and a TV pilot. Dan writes honestly, the way he films has you at complete ease which is the ideal environment to get the best, most natural takes and then produces a smoothly edited reel highlighting each actor he works with. I can’t recommend him enough.
