Welcome to the films and photography of Dan Dillard and Deadlight Films. I believe it all starts and ends with the story. The camera is just a tool.

You will find examples of my work on my Reel and Photography pages.

Stories need to be grounded in reality to be believable, and in my films I intend to show the world as it is–while injecting the tiniest lies…And maybe the occasional rubber-suited monster movie.

You can follow my journey as I learn the ups and downs of making films and celebrating and commiserating about them on his blog. You can look through my lens to see what I sees in my images and films.

Please reach out to me for networking, new projects or just to chat. Contact me through email, interact via social media, or leave a comment on an article or two.
