Founder and editor-in-chief

My name is Jan Sørup. I’m the founder of FilmDaft and editor-in-chief.

FilmDaft.com about page Jan Sørup

I own the video production company Apertura, which produces video content for companies in Denmark and Scandinavia.

FilmDaft is all about high-quality content that is helpful and interesting to read for indie filmmakers, small video production companies, vloggers, screenwriters, and others engaged in video content production.

But because I’m a movie buff myself (I especially enjoy science-fiction, old spaghetti westerns, French movies, and campy niche films from the 1970s), FilmDaft has a movie geek section covering everything from movie recommendations to movie quotes.

An excellent niche movie or a memorable movie quote are great examples of the filmmaking trade succeeding. So watch and learn!

And I’m blessed to work with a team of fantastic writers:
