Danny Cooke

Danny Cooke’s films celebrate unique artists and Great British tradition. The featured video is a short which captures David A. Smith’s journey as he creates an album cover for American musician John Mayer. David is a traditional ornamental glass artist and Cooke’s film reveals how much time, skill and passion goes into his work. In a similar vein is the short film Upside Down, Left To Right: A Letterpress Film, which is about the technique of letter press printing and how it is currently enjoying a revival in popularity, perhaps as a response to the fast progression of the digital age.

Danny’s style of filming is often intimate and romantic – an effect achieved through the use of lingering, close-up shots of facial expressions and hand movements. He also favours striking musical accompaniments over naturalistic use of sound and this contributes to the immersive nature of his films.
