Daniel Horitz
I was born in….
Salisbury, Dorset

I now live in…
Camden, London

But if I could live anywhere, it would be…
Alternate reality London with a beach and mountains

Right now, I’m binge-watching…
Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown

The last track I listened to was…
Nappy Nina - Modestly (feat. MAASSAI)

I dream about…
Trying to escape from a maze-like house alongside people from my past with obstacles blocking the way in each room

The app I couldn’t survive without is…
PictureThis

Social media is…
a moderately useful tool and a curse.

When we can travel again, I’ll be heading to…
The new socialist utopia in North America for work.

The most important lesson I’ve learned in 2020…
The news is bad for your health.

The best/worst thing about lockdown was…
Best thing was all the time to read, listen to music and watch films.
Worst thing was the societal carnage?


What the film industry needs is…
More platforms for sharing and promoting non-commercial work.

What I wish I’d known when I was starting my career…
everyone is making it up as they go, and love for the art will carry you far.

The best advice I’ve ever been given…
Live in the moment.

The film I wish I’d made…
Aguirre Wrath of God

My biggest inspiration is…
My parents

If I wasn’t an A&R... I’d be…
a sandwich artist...

My last meal would be…
Ploughman’s lunch

My life philosophy in three words…
Shit Shower Shave
