Back to Kanab

Danny Daneau

It has felt like a long time has passed since our first trip to Kanab, Utah in March of 2007. It was our location scout where we first saw those epic red rocks and met some of the wonderful people in the town. On July 24th, 2007 we started production on the film and on August 23rd we wrapped.

This Friday, August 22nd, we will do a special invitation only screening of THE ATTIC DOOR for the people in Kanab and some of our crew. This will be our first trip back to Kanab since we wrapped and the first time an audience will watch the movie. Yesterday was going to be the day I fly with my family out of Ft. Myers International Airport to Phoenix, Arizona then drive to Kanab, but our flight was canceled due to Tropical Storm Fay.

Now we are sitting in the airport ready to fly. The storm has passed and is actually gaining strength as it hits further north. I am anxious about the screening as it will be the first audience to watch the movie and it will be filled with the people who helped make it happen.

My First Film

Danny Daneau

I thought this week I would share with you the first film I made while earning my BFA at the University of Central Florida School of Film. The short film is called Goodnight Charlie (2004) and it is here that I first started to explore the wonders of childhood and the tragedy of growing up. I hope you enjoy.
