Art Director, Production Designer, Producer

Career Summary

Hi! I'm Danaë, I'm a Melbourne based Production Designer and Producer, with a wide range of experience across feature films, shorts, music videos, web series and television. I studied Film and Television at Deakin University. While I specialised in the horror genre whilst studying, I has worked across horror, comedy, drama, sci fi, romance, and many other genres. As a Production Designer, whether it's a gory horror scene, or a light hearted romance, or something full of pattern and colour, I love to design costumes and sets that work to create visual interest and tell a story, and to use art and design principles and to create awesome looking scenes. As a Producer, there is no task that can't be done! I'm always keen to find workarounds and ways to achieve the best outcome for the Director, and for the film overall.
