It might be said that Daniel San Román's long film career started with his first experiences in the United Kingdom. After completing a BA (Honours) in Moving Image from the University of Portsmouth and rounding out his training with courses on radio and photography, Daniel directed several documentaries (still in England), such as "Batala", "Seeking Sanctuary", "Deconstructing Palfi" and "On Every Street", and was a production assistant on "Racing Rivals" on Yorkshire Television UK.
After returning to Spain in 2003, he started working professionally with Hugo Serra. With him, he did several projects for Feng Shui Films, such as the making of "La flaqueza del bolchevique", the music videos "Mira como vengo" by Las Chuches and "Vampire" by Glamour To Kill, and the short film "Bota de oro", nominated for a 2004 Goya Award. Together, they directed and produced "Baratometrajes: Películas de bajo presupuesto", released in 2005. At this point, their paths diverged, and then later converged again on Baratometrajes 2.0.
Daniel has a background in “doing it all”, from photography through to editing, though in the past ten years he has specialized in directing, which he has done for different TV stations and on programs such as "Fly Music" (TDT channel), "Fahrenheit 451 (Canal 9), "Los Impossible" (Telemadrid), "Brigada policial" (La Sexta) and "Mujeres, Hombres y Viceversa" (Tele 5). His vast professional experience has allowed him to launch his own production company, CutFilms, which has made music videos for such artists as Ryma3XL, Inordem, Vintage and Lula García, in addition to doing advertising work for such important brand names as Vodafone, Tanqueray, Madrid Excelente and Bodegas Sonsierra.
A heavy workload for someone who also manages to find time to help out emerging musical artists and work altruistically on low-budget projects.
