GETTING TO

          KNOW ME

Hello and thank you for visiting. My name is Danene and I am a Rhode-Island-raised actress and storyteller living in the inspiring city of Los Angeles, CA. 
Since making acting my main pursuit, I've been fortunate enough to land a lead role in an indie sci-fi pilot, several lead roles in short films and accepted the award for 'BEST ACTRESS' at the LA Short Film Festival. 
 
The momentum is certainly picking up speed, and I couldn't be more grateful for that. I can't wait to see where this journey of exploring the empathic craft of authentic human expression takes me next.
 
Let's make some magic.

AWARDS 

It was a dream to attend the Chelsea Film Festival in NYC, NY. Thank you for distinguishing my team's film "CLUB RAT$" with the Special Jury Award - we are forever grateful for your support.

 

     

I'm both honored and humbled to have accepted the award for 'Best Actress' for my role in "FAST HEARTS" at the Los Angeles Short Film Festival in Santa Monica, CA, alongside director, Franck Tabouring.

CLUB RAT$ - FILM - LEAD

With the Time’s Up and Me Too movements launching a much-needed focus on sexual assault and how to put an end to it, we’re excited to contribute our film “CLUB RAT$” to the conversation. 

 

After a wild night of hunting for sexual predators at a local club, a vigilante girl gang arrives at a secluded desert location to begin initiating a potential new member.

 

Uncomfortable truths arise and launch their vengeance-seeking game into dangerous heights.

 

 

FAST HEARTS chronicles the impromptu romance between two women over the course of one weekend.

 

Rachel is an aspiring writer who enjoys spending time in a desert cabin to channel her imagination. One day she meets Mona, a free-spirited wanderer searching for her own purpose.

 

Rachel offers Mona a place to stay and clean up before the latter continues her journey, but it is not long before the two women detect an undeniable chemistry that starts unfolding over the following few days.
