About Dan Weldon

Following the success of his first film, the award winning My Macondo in 1990, Dan co-founded and co-owned the independent production company Tall Stories, producing critically acclaimed films by emerging, first time writer/directors. Films produced included: Andrew Kottings award winning Gallivant, Jasmin- Dizdar’s Cannes winner Beautiful People and Ntshaveni Wa Luruli’s, Silver Bear at Berlin film The Wooden Camera.

As a writer/director Dan has written a number of commissioned and spec screenplays for Stephen Frears, Amblin Pictures, Channel Four Films, Working Title and Academy Awards winner Chris Menges; and has made a short film or two, including Maisie’s Catch for Channel Four and the Arts Council.

In 2008, he wrote and produced Nicolas Roeg's Puffball starring Kelly Reilly, Miranda Richardson and Donald Sutherland.

Currently Dan is writing At Sunset a WW1 fantasy feature for Amerique Film in Montreal, and is exploring a radical, new platform for telling stories; he is editing a documentary poem All About Everything: The State of Things in Five Uneasy Chapters and is about to re-release his first film My Macondo on DVD.
