We are a group of kickass women producers and filmmakers working together to not only bring this gem of a story to the big screen, but we are also joining others like us to dispel the belief that sci-fi is a male dominated genre or that it's a genre that people of color are not interested in. Thank you in advance for, joining and supporting us on this journey.

In 2012, Danielle S. Mooney decided to bet on herself. Averting her fears of this crazy industry, she got her feet wet in the world of film by joining the hit web series Finding Me, the Series as a Production Manager. Since then she has immersed herself in the craft by taking film and writing workshops and working as a PA, Production Manager, and AD on various projects. Danielle aims to create authentic films that focus on self-discovery, intimacy and how people relate to the world around them; with a focus on the African-American and minority experience. Most recently, she co-wrote and produced her first feature film Water (2017), a multidimensional story about a woman’s journey of self-discovery that highlights the complex integration of art, love and sexuality. She is currently a co-writer of the upcoming webseries DEKA-LOG: James & Danielle, a spin-off of Finding Me, the Series; and is working on a rewrite of her first solo project, a short about a mother/daughter’s relationship against the backdrop of mental health and suicide.
