Daniel Cormack - Actaeon Films 

Actaeon Films is a London-based production company incorporated in July 2004 by director Daniel Cormack to produce feature-length theatrical motion pictures. 

Our focus is on producing British films with international appeal across a range of budgets, that use elements of established cinematic genres in fresh and innovative ways that will entertain and challenge a broad range of audiences. 

Our films use striking narratives - which combine contemporary resonance with deeper universal and timeless themes - first-rate screenwriting and a singular cinematic vision to attract the best actors, technicians and production and distribution partners. 

Our short form work includes the Tiscali Award-winning 35mm melodrama Amelia and Michael (2007) starring Anthony Head, the UK Film Council-completion funded A Fitting Tribute (2007) and the micro-short comedy Nightwalking (2008).

Black comedy. Hardened-pro news reporter Tammy initiates the novice reporter Niall into the art of the 'death-knock' - knocking on the doors of the recently bereaved to get a news story. <br> Niall's lack of success has put his job under threat and Tammy has been detailed to improve his hit rate. When Niall death-knocks Mrs Wright he finds not the grieving, hostile mother he expected but a warm welcome, good food and a comfortable bed, but what's really going on and what are Mrs Wright's true motives?

Film reviews: 
“A gripping collection of nine short films that all project an effective message with a shower of creativity and originality. Each film possesses a unique quality to touch and captivate with a lasting impression in no more than 15 minutes...'A Fitting Tribute' is a satirical story about a young journalist who is confronted with an unusual circumstance when he meets a grieving mother. Akin to the standard of directing the acting too is a far cry from amateur; nine little gems that all twinkle with artistic imagination.” <b>Natascha Kaufman, Time Out London, Issue 1938, 10-16 October 2007</b> <br> “’A Fitting Tribute’ amused audiences with its sweet yet morose humour at the Edinburgh, Palm Springs and Warsaw film festivals…Roping in current trends for quirkiness and geeky characters in awkward situations, the beautifully shot A Fitting Tribute follows two very different journalists.” <b>Kerry Ann Eustice, Lewisham & Greenwich News Shopper, 28th November 2007</b>
