Dan Hon

Founder, Six to Start

Portrait of Dan Hon

Dan Hon is co-founder of Six to Start, an award winning entertainment production company founded with his brother, Adrian, in September 2007.

Six to Start's first project, We Tell Stories, for Penguin, re-imagined how a publisher could adapt to producing internet native fiction. We Tell Stories was received to great critical and commercial acclaim, winning the awards for both Innovation and Best of Show at South by Southwest Interactive 2009. The company's work includes Spooks: Code 9 - Liberty News for BBC THREE; Smokescreen, winner of Best Game at South by Southwest Interactive 2010; and most recently, Misfits for E4.

Dan speaks extensively on ARGs, transmedia, cross-platform entertainment and video games and has served as a jury member for the BAFTA Videogames and RTS Education Awards. A winner of the 4Talent Multiplatform award for new talent, and one of Broadcast's Hot Shots in 2009, Dan has most recently spoken at and served on the board of The Media Festival, and spoken at b.tween, Hello Digital, Sheffield Doc/Fest, WildScreen, South by Southwest and the London Games Festival.

Dan is a law graduate from Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge University, has an MSc in Software Engineering from the University of Liverpoo, is a member of BAFTA and a fellow of the RSA.

Dan has been cold turkey on World of Warcraft ever since Christmas, and his Horde Rogue has been sadly neglected. Now, he's ridding the world of the zombie menace with his friends.
