We’ve released documentary Hitler Was My Neighbour online. The short documentary, which follows the life of 92-year-old Edgar Feuchtwanger, a German Jew who grew up on the same street as Adolf Hitler in the 1930s, was shortlisted from over 700 submissions for the Imperial War Museum Short Film Festival, and screened three times there during 2017.

Short documentary Hitler Was My Neighbour screened at the Imperial War Museum Short Film Festival this week. The film was shortlisted from nearly 700 films submitted. Judges included Lord David Puttnam and Kevin Loader, and the film was acclaimed by selectors as “a compelling and curious tale of an incognito upbringing”. The Festival Programme contains further information.
The film tells the story of 92-year-old Edgar Feuchtwanger, a German Jew who grew up living on the same street as Hitler in the 1930s. The film has already screened at the Earl’s Court Film Festival, alongside Jan – A Refugee’s Story.
And that’s a wrap! Fabulous five days filming in West London with a talented cast and crew. A few ungraded stills here which give a flavour of the movie. Post-production now underway.
I’m excited to announce our outstandingly talented cast for Missing: Nicolas Fagerberg as Joe, Michelle Crane as Susie and Warren Brooking as Tom. Shooting begins in exactly one month!
I’m delighted to announce my short film script “Missing” has won funding from the Earls Court Film Festival short film fund competition and will be shooting over the Summer.
“When Joe starts to see Missing Person posters appear in his local park, he suspects things aren’t entirely as they seem. Why does nobody else seem to have noticed them? And what do they have to do with recent changes in weather patterns? The answer is stranger than he can imagine.”
I interviewed Jan Harlan, Stanley Kubrick’s Executive Producer, at St Albans School recently, and edited this film together based on the interview. He gives some amazing insights into Kubrick’s process with selecting and editing the music in his films, and gives an indication of how different Eyes Wide Shut nearly was in tone.
As a long-time Kubrick geek this was something of a dream come true for me. My thanks go to Jan, a charming man and entrancing speaker.
A documentary I made a few years ago, commissioned by Salisbury Arts Centre to follow their young Dance group, JIGSAW, as it worked with three professional dance companies. It was selected to be shown on the Swindon Big Screen as part of a Dance Festival in 2012.
Filmed at Caffe Concerto, Leicester Square last week – Daniel plays there regularly on Wednesday nights.
