FOUNDER AND DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY
Dan is Full Tilt Film's creative director with a background in adventure documentary filmmaking. He's been taking cameras to remote environments for most of his career and recently taken adventure filming to an entirely new level of extreme, pioneering a new genre of immersive, survival filmmaking. He filmed (and survived) on the first series of Bear Grylls ‘The Island’ and recently put himself through a gruelling expedition across the Pacific to film 'Mutiny', an epic survival documentary for Channel 4. He continues to make beautiful and raw content in some of the world’s most hostile environments, most recently returning from 50 days filming in the Amazon jungle.
FOUNDER AND CREATIVE PRODUCER
Nick is an experienced documentary filmmaker. As a Director he’s self-shot and and helped shape the vision and look of iconic US shows like 'Gold Rush', the highest rating Discovery show of all time, alongside ground breaking UK terrestrial television like Channel 4's 'Escape' described as 'The Krypton Factor meets Survivor'.
He's managed productions and large teams in remote and difficult locations across the planet. He’s run expeditions in the jungles of Papua New Guinea, the slopes of Ecuadorian volcanos and recently built virtual film sets in the Panamanian Jungle and upon an Icelandic glacier.
