Archive for the '02. Erica Harrell – Producer' Category


It is with a heavy heart that we bring the sad news that The Attic Door has lost a member of our family. Linda Daneau, mother to Danny and his sister Christine, passed away unexpectedly last month at the age of 57.

From the onset of our film, Linda and her husband Dan showed nothing but support during the entire experience. She and Dan were on set in Utah and were always quick to lend a hand in any capacity, making some of the most difficult days that much easier. Their kindness and generosity also reached beyond the set, as they entertained cast and crew during and after production, keeping spirits up and traveling to our screenings all over the country.

Linda was warm, kind, thoughtful, funny and fun to be around. Her positive attitude and pride in the accomplishments of her son and his friends and colleagues helped to make our production the wonderful, joyful experience we remember so fondly.

She will be missed.

Producer Erica Harrell World Premiere in China

Danny Daneau

Shanghai PosterThe team here at theatticdoormovie.com would like to congratulate our producer, Erica Harrell, who will be world premiering her other feature, ACTS OF MERCY at the Shanghai International Film Festival next week. Shanghai, with it’s corresponding film market, has been described as the “Cannes of Asia” and it is truly an honor to be invited to play in the International Panorama.

ACTS OF MERCY was also directed by my future wife, Laura Lopez. We both wrote, produced, and post produced our films together while attending the University of Central Florida’s Entrepreneurial Digital Cinema, Master of Fine Arts program. Working in those tight spaces had it’s affect on us, and we are to be married this Summer in her home country, Ecaudor!

Paying homage to classic noir films and thrillers, ACTS OF MERCY unveils the story of young nurse Maggie Collins as she begins caring for the charming but forgotten residents of Moss Oak Manor nursing home. Slowly, Maggie finds herself on an ethical minefield where good intentions turn into ambition, and mercy finds its way into murder. The film stars Tony and Emmy nominated actress, Tovah Feldshuh and upcoming star of Martin Scorsese’s Boardwalk Empire, Aleksa Paladino.

Once again, congratulations Laura and Erica.
