Founded in 2011 by filmmaker Daniel Harding, 23½ Films is an independent UK production company striving to make unique content and original stories
I started 23½ Films in 2011 when I was… yep, you guessed it, twenty-three and a half years old. After graduating from Sussex University, I purchased my own camera equipment from the money I had saved up from a weekend job. By the time I graduated I knew I didn’t want to leave Brighton, nor find a job in the big smoke working my way up through a production company as an assistant. I was determined to make my own films.
I've been making my own content for almost ten years now, and whilst I've grown as a filmmaker, I am still striving to improve and learn. To date, I've made 17 short films and over 150 showreel scenes with Daniel Harding Showreels, but I want to broaden my portfolio and start exploring and creating other types of work. My aim is to build 23½ Films into a fully self-dependent production house that can take on any visual or editing project big or small.
This year I released a new short film Dinner With Mum (which can be found online) that has screened at eight festivals and won the Audience Choice Award at The Box Festival in Newbury. I intend to start work on my debut feature film Blah Blah Blah in the coming months, as well as finishing a six-part audio drama series titled The Watchful Eye.
Feel free to get in touch if you have a project you want to discuss. I am open to discussing all possibilities, and can offer help, advice and expertise.
