"Anyone who has ever edited a documentary knows that it’s 30 parts art, 30 parts skill, 30 parts communication, and after that, it’s just plain luck. Working with Dan on this one-hour documentary has been a pure pleasure. He’s technically so skilled and he is so committed to the art of the project that it’s easy to forget what a really wonderful communicator he is – both in writing e mails to clarify or keeping the producer up to speed and in terms of sharing his ideas with thoughtfulness and without ego. Out of 10 stars, Dan is an 11."

"One of the many things that Dan Dunbar adds to the editing process is the peace of mind that comes from having a second chance.  While you are agonizing over how you can possibly re-shoot something you made of mess of - he is quietly working away - figuring out how to make what you have work - work really well - and make you look good in the process. He is to the film making process what a Mulligan is to golf. A second chance for fallible mortals with the best of intentions."

"I have worked with Dan on a number of projects. He is skilled in Avid and Final Cut Pro editing and has experience in editing of various language video programmes as the United Nations produces most of its products in the six official languages - Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Spanish and Russian. Dan is skilled especially in editing promotional pieces, advocacy videos and short and long format video features. We worked together on the farewell tribute to the former Secretary-General, Kofi Annan, which turned out to be a very touching and engaging visual product."

"During our time together, Dan consistently proved himself not only as a skilled editor but as someone with sound news judgment.  In a high pressure network news environment where tight deadlines are common, it helped to know I had him on my team.  Dan was often tasked with editing breaking news stories for air and he did so with a tireless work ethic, a commitment to quality, and a creative approach to problem solving."
