Who is Danny Daneau? Where is Danny Daneau? Why does Danny...Daneau?
Danny Daneau is a man… medium size… English born…southern. After surviving a series of terminal illness as a boy, he found an unquenchable appetite for stories about the dark side of growing up. Obsessed, some would say possessed, he received his MFA in Digital Cinema to direct his first feature at the age of twenty-four, a coming-of-age thriller called THE ATTIC DOOR. His work has played in over forty film festivals across the world, won several awards (including Best Feature at the Bend Film Festival), and is now available on streaming platforms such as iTunes and Amazon.
After moving to Los Angeles, Daneau worked for several years as a motion picture editor and post producer. Learning from other up-in-coming writer-directors as they crafted their highly personal stories while keeping Chipotle in business, his work as an editor garnered praise by the New York Times, Huffington Post, and Cinema Editor Magazine. In 2014, Daneau was ready to return to his roots and joined the cutting edge creative studio KIDS AT PLAY to develop new projects within the company. Now the Creative Director, he oversees/creates/writes a slate of projects - ranging from scripted television, feature films, digital series’, and most recently, comedy pilots for VR.
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.
