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, Danny found an unquenchable appetite for stories about the dark side of growing up. Obsessed with filmmaking, some would say possessed, he received his MFA in Digital Cinema under the mentorship of Sundance co- founder, Sterling VanWagenen at the University of Central Florida. During his studies, Danny directed several award winning short films that played in over forty film festivals all over the world. Shortly after graduating, he directed his first feature, a coming-of-age thriller called THE ATTIC DOOR which was picked up by distributor Cinedigm and is now available on streaming platforms such as iTunes and Amazon.
Born in England, Danny is a tri-citizen of the UK, the US, and Ecuador. Currently, Danny lives in Los Angeles and serves as the Creative Director for cutting edge production studio KIDS AT PLAY where he develops new projects within the company. His day to day consists of writing / directing / overseeing a production slate - ranging from scripted television, features, and digital series’. His recent credits include producing/directing a digital series, ON THE LINE, for American television network Spike — writing/directing a digital commercial campaign for BUD LIGHT, and producing the kid-focused half-hour comedy series for YouTube Red, HYPERLINKED. A restless creator, Daneau continues his personal career as a writer-director, exploring his childhood fears through projects for both film and television. His most recent work, a hour-long mystery series entitled, YOUNG ALFRED HITCHCOCK, was recognized by The Tracking Board as one of 2017's Top 50 pilots.
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. They most recently welcomed a baby boy named Lucas into the world. He’ll out-score his father for with four citizenships (adding Chile to the mix).
