About me
I have been a Creative Producer for over 9 years (freelance for the past year and a half), getting experience with some amazing brands like Disney, DAZN, The FA, Cartoon Network, Lucasfilm, Marvel and others, in many countries around the world. With a background in creating on-air and online campaigns for franchises such as Star Wars, and also re-branding on air channels for Disney and Turner Broadcasting, I have recently worked for agencies that specialise in quick turnaround projects. With a main skill-set based around creation of concept (advertising, promotional & branding), editing, script writing and directing visual content in multi language and single feeds, I understand the importance of creativity within well-known brands and the need for attention to detail when dealing with them. In order to get anything signed off by some of the major corporations mentioned previously, your ideas and your process have to be thoroughly thought through and the targets of the campaign realistic. Within my work found on www.danielcasmith.com you can view some of the campaigns that I’ve been fortunate enough to work on, demonstrating all of these skills, helping the brands reach new audiences, strengthening their viewership.
