— ABOUT —
Danny Daneau is a man… medium size… British born… especially handsome after a couple cocktails. He is also the hubby-half of a writing duo with spouse, Laura C. Lopez. Together they are dedicated to creating bold and unapologetic Latinx heroes for their kids to look up to. Their first feature film writing together, AMERICAN DREAMER, was recently selected amongst 4000 submissions to be part of Imagine Entertainment's prestigious Impact accelerator program. Danny is also an alumni of the Film Independent Episodic lab.
Surviving a series of terminal illness as a boy, Danny 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 as iTunes and Amazon. Recent writing/directing credits include a half-hour pilot, THE QUINN MARCUS SHOW for PopTV and directing the digital comedy series, TURNT UP WITH THE TAYLORS starring Keke Palmer.
Previously, Danny served as the Creative Director for production studio Kids At Play. Among the dozens of projects her oversaw in active development, credits with the company include producing THE TOLL TOAD with Lizzy Caplan and Martin Starr, producing 150 episodes of the syndicated talk series ME TIME WITH FRANGELA, writing/directing the digital series, ON THE LINE for Viacom Velocity — writing/directing an ad campaign for BUD LIGHT, and producing the half-hour kids series for Disney/YouTube Originals, HYPERLINKED.
Currently, Danny and Laura live in Los Angeles with their two children and are developing a slate of projects under their first look with Impact.
