biography

Daniel Thomas Freeman is an artist working mainly in music and film. "The Silence After Life", his debut feature film as writer / director / composer won Best Actress at the Brighton Rocks Film Festival 2020 after its premiere at the Ramsgate International Film and TV Festival. It was also screened at the London Rocks Film Festival.

His debut album "The Beauty Of Doubting Yourself" (Home Normal) led to scoring the award-winning, brutal and beautiful Film4 / BFI / STUDIOCANAL feature "Catch Me Daddy" with Matthew Watson and being included in Indiewire's 2015 list of "15 Composers To Watch".

Daniel was a member of Rameses III, the South London ambient / folk band who had countless releases over their ten years on labels such as Type and Important Records and whose track "Across the Lake is Where My Heart Shines" has had over 4 million streams on Spotify. Daniel’s most recent solo album, "The Infinite and the Unknowable" (2016), was accompanied by his debut collection of photography and poetry.

Other soundtrack work includes music for Alexi Hobbs' interactive short "The Last Hunt" (National Film Board of Canada) which won a 2014 Webby Award and the Paul Frankl short "The Last Tree" (part of "The Uncertain Kingdom), 2020.
