Who is Danny Daneau? Where is Danny Daneau? Why does Danny...Daneau?
Danny Daneau is a man… medium size… British born… especially handsome after a couple cocktails. Surviving a series of terminal illness as a boy, he found an unquenchable appetite for stories about the dark side of growing up. With a MFA in Digital Cinema, Danny directed his first feature at age twenty-four — a coming-of-age thriller called, THE ATTIC DOOR. His work has played in over forty film festivals, won several awards, and is now available on streaming platforms such asiTunes and Amazon.
Currently, Danny lives in Los Angeles and serves as the Creative Director for production studio Kids At Play. His recent credits include writing/directing the digital series, ON THE LINE for SpikeTV — writing/directing an ad campaign for BUD LIGHT, — creating/directing a television pilot currently active at Travel Channel, and producing the half-hour kids series for Disney/YouTube Red, HYPERLINKED. A restless storyteller, Danny also continues his personal career creating projects for both film and television. His feature script, The Boy Who Jumped Time, was named one of the top 25 science fiction scripts of 2017 by The Page Awards. Most recently, his hour-long mystery series, Young Alfred Hitchcock, was recognized by The Tracking Board as 2017's Top 50 pilots and was also invited to be among the first participants for Film Independent's inaugural Episodic Lab.
At home, Daneau conned a talented / beautiful Ecuadorian filmmaker to be his wife. She thinks he works as a British diplomat. If you meet her in person, just say he’s helping you with a passport. Last year they welcomed a baby boy named Lucas into the world.
