OTHER PEOPLE - short film

Saffy is cooking dinner. Sam is watching football. Matt is on his way to their place to celebrate his birthday. And he’s bringing a friend.

But something about Barry doesn’t seem quite right. It appears that he isn’t all that he has made out to be.

Then again, as Barry himself finds out... who is?

Written & Directed by Daniel McGowan

THE REMINDER - short film

Director of Photography / Editor Jonathan Dunn

footprints - feature

How do you make a crust and still have the stomach to eat it?

Forget the Spice Girls. Forget Dolly the Sheep. Forget Princess Di and the royal divorce. 1996 was really about the burgeoning ‘green’ telesales industry – raising consciousness and selling stuff!

Swansea’s TeleGreen business machine is whirring away. But success means the sharks soon start circling. Can curmudgeonly cog Ken stop the shadowy corporations, save the world and find a decent pint of beer?

A biting, timely satire about greed, idealism and the marks we leave behind. Oh, and free pens. Don’t forget the free pens.

Written by Neil Salvage and Janet Sate / Directed by Daniel McGowan - IN DEVELOPMENT

1957 – Llanelli’s pride and joy, the Scarlets, are playing a ceremonial match against a combined Oxbridge XV. But with tensions rising and dissent in the ranks, in this rugby battle between the Toffs and the Taffs there’s more than just pride at stake.

Written by Paul Jenkins and Daniel McGowan Directed by Daniel McGowan
Produced by Daniel McGowan, James Lucas & Jonathan Dunn
