“Daniel is one of the few artists I know with a truly flexible set of skills. While being a solid Compositor, his deep knowledge and more than competent handling of different areas of CGI make him an extremely versatile and valuable asset to any Visual Effects endeavor. He also possesses a strong eye for stereoscopic imagery and has the professional background and know how to put it to great use. Besides, you will hardly find someone nicer to work with.

“Working with Dan it was easy to see how at ease he was with using Nuke and his knowledge of in depth procedures were quick to notice. Dan is impeccable with detail and is a great problem solver.
