Daniel Nils Roberts

I am a Webby and Broadcast Digital Award-nominated filmmaker, journalist, screenwriter and comedian based in Western Norway.

I can offer a full range of skills, including writing, researching, directing, producing, shooting, editing, presenting and voiceover.

I am available for travel all across Norway, and can offer an intimate insight into the culture.

I currently work part-time as a Producer/Director for BBC Ideas – the broadcaster's short-form documentary unit.

As a director I have two feature documentaries in development with prominent production companies, and in 2022 I was chosen to be one of the participants in the prestigious Documentary Campus Masterschool.

I am working on several funded fiction projects as a screenwriter, and my filmmaking is entwined with my extensive experience in comedy writing and performance. I have toured the world with a variety of live comedy shows, and I am one of the leading improvisers in the UK, currently starring in West End smash Austentatious.

In 2022 a podcast I produced and co-created – 'Come Into My Kitchen' – was nominated for ‘Best Comedy’ at the British Podcast Awards, UK podcasting’s highest honour.

I have also worked as a music journalist, and have extensive experience of copywriting for a range of projects.
