Dan Tonkin

DanDan has worked for many years as a freelancer and as an independent filmmaker. He was born in the East Midlands, with an upbringing that took him from London to Hong Kong and an international boarding school in Surrey. He is proud of his multi-cultural childhood, which has proved a great tool in his stories and networking. Graduating from Ealing Studios Met Film School in 2008, he returned to education at Bournemouth, where he also received a leadership commendation and an MA in cinematography.
 
With plenty of field experience under his belt, Dan became concerned that higher education did little to educate younger filmmakers about the road ahead. He was determined to make a difference and soon began mentoring and volunteering across many projects in various capacities, from scriptwriting and producing, to directing, cinematography and editing. In 2017, he and the group he was mentoring received a Royal Television Society award nomination.
 
Devoted to helping other underdogs tackle the challenges of filmmaking, Dan has always fought to make projects the best they can be, placing great emphasis on building the potential of the people he works with, and taking them under his wing in a network he calls his ‘DanFam’.

Upon his return to the UK after teaching in Vietnam & Paraguay, he met Jean Maye at a film festival in his home town in Derby. Recognising their common ground and shared goals, he decided that joining Mouse Chased Cat Productions made good sense for the future of developing stories and content together.
