"Danny's experience spans over 20 years and his reputation for consistently providing cutting edge special effects along with integrity and attention to detail has built him an impressive client portfolio"



Danny began his career as a trainee working on London's Burning where he learnt his trade and grew through the ranks to become one of British television's most renowned supervisors. He continued working his way up the ladder and gaining experience until he became a BECTU graded TV supervisor and formed Real SFX in 2008.

Since the birth of Real SFX, Danny has been at the forefront of the British T.V and film industry, providing effects for films such as Submarine and The Killer Elite.

Danny’s charismatic approach has seen him work with numerous renowned film directors such as Danny Boyle and Ken Loache. As well as providing cutting edge effects for films, Danny has supervised many of Britain's much loved dramas and soaps including Sherlock, for which he was nominated for a Primetime Emmy award, and the phenomenon that is Doctor Who. The infamous Coronation Street tram crash was supervised by Danny and saw him being nominated for an RTS award and gathered the biggest audience for the programme in nearly 7 years.

His years of commitment to the longest running sci-fi show Dr Who has earned him respect from his peers and is a highlight in his supervisory career. The biggest achievement of Danny’s Doctor Who career came last year in 2014 when he and his team won both a BAFTA Craft Award and a BAFTA Cymru Award for their work on the 50th Anniversary Special – making Real SFX a multi-award winning SFX company.

Having worked continuously since he opened Real SFX, his reputation for working on countless British shows has paved the way for huge productions from across the pond. The past few years has seen Danny and his team work on Starz’ American productions Da Vinci's Demons and Outlander which were both huge hits.

In the past, Danny has exhibited his skills to a sold out Excel Arena for 3 days giving Doctor Who fans the chance to see first hand how the effects team bring their ideas to their screen. To add to Danny's list of successes, two new workshops were opened in Manchester and Glasgow to quicken the process of delivering his trademark effects to wider audiences across Britain.
