Major: Bringing my brand of passion to filmmaking

Greetings and Salutations!

The world knows me as Ms. Danni Winn.  My friends know me as the movie nerd.  My employers know me as a hard working team player.  I know this is MY time to fulfill my lifelong goal of being employed within the filmmaking community.  

I am a lover of everything film, but Horror is my pride and joy.  Favorite Directors include but are not limited to John Carpenter, Stanley Kubrick, Lars von Trier, Guillermo Del Toro, Ridley Scott, Takashi Miike, David and Jennifer Lynch, Adam Green, Alexandre Aja, Xavier Gens, Nicolas Winding Refn, David Fincher, Gaspar Noe, Richard Kelly.....and very much anticipating the future projects from Joe Stauffer, Ana Lily Amirpour, L Gustavo Cooper, and Jovanka Vuckovich.

My Grandfather is to blame for my movie obsession.  I would spend a great deal of time with him in his house filled with film.  Hundreds upon hundreds of VHS tapes, with two to three movies on each.  Even as a child I could and would sit down quietly and enjoy something Grandpa picked, much to his delight.  

The obsession runs so deep my job is at movie theater.  I'm a veteran of the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, enjoying my shifts as a food peddler and pint slinger.  I've learned  many facets of operations during my time here, including Assistant Bar Manager, Special Event Host, Trainer, and even let me have my very own monthly personal film pick.  Some of these included Legend, 2001 A Space Odyssey, Donnie Darko, Battle Royale, Blue Velvet, Oldboy, and Sid and Nancy.  These particular showings I would incorporate relevant trivia with prizes followed by a brief film history.

I believe in treating everyone with respect and understanding,  I'm not afraid to ask questions.  I value the pursuits of happiness, love, and fulfillment.  I take pride in my strong work ethic and I'm ready to show the world what I was meant to do.  Make amazing films.
