As a film composer, Romer's scores include four-time Oscar-nominated Beasts of the Southern Wild, Beasts of No Nation, Chasing Coral, Gleason, Good Doctor and the Emmy-winning Jim: The James Foley Story. Romer scored the Ubisoft video game Far Cry 5 released on March 27, 2018.
He has produced music for numerous artists including A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera, whose single "Say Something," topped charts around the world, hit 6x Platinum, sold over seven million copies, and won a 2015 Grammy. Dan co-produced "Treat You Better" by Shawn Mendes which reached No. 1 on the iTunes chart and No. 3 on the US Top 40 pop radio charts in September 2016. He was set to compose the James Bond film No Time to Die, but was reportedly replaced by Hans Zimmer due to "creative differences". Romer composed the score to the Pixar animated feature film, Luca and worked with Justin Paul on the incidental underscore for Stephen Chbosky's 2021 film adaptation of Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen.
