Hey, I'm Dana!

Los Angeles, California

Director. Writer. Actor. Producer. OH... and food & scifi junkie...

DANA KIPPEL IS A WRITER, DIRECTOR, ACTOR AND PRODUCER, BORN IN QUEENS, NY. SHE WAS ADOPTED AND RAISED IN THE NEW YORK SUBURBS WHERE SHE EXCELLED IN GYMNASTICS, CREATIVE WRITING, SCIENCE & MATH AND THEATRE,  WHILE ALSO EXPERIENCING SEVERE BULLYING. DUE TO CHILDHOOD TRAUMA, SHE BATTLED ADDICTION AND MENTAL HEALTH IN HER TEENAGE YEARS, TURNED IT AROUND AND STARTED HELPING PEOPLE IN THE MENTAL HEALTH FIELD THROUGHOUT HER TWENTIES BY STUDYING PSYCHOLOGY, PHILOSOPHY, SPIRITUALITY, AND UNIFIED & METAPHYSICS. SHE THEN WENT ON TO OPEN ONE OF THE NATIONS FIRST GHOST KITCHENS IN SOUTH FLORIDA IN 2018, SELLING HER CONCEPT IN EARLY 2020. SINCE MOVING TO LOS ANGELES, SHE HAS STARRED IN VARIOUS INDIE FILMS, NATIONAL COMMERCIALS, WROTE AND CO DIRECTED A HORROR SHORT (CURRENTLY IN THE FESTIVAL CIRCUIT), AND IS PURSUING A MULTI-FACETED CAREER IN ENTERTAINMENT.

 I WRITE TO REPRESENT THE FEMALE PERSPECTIVE. I AM INFLUENCED BY THE HEROINE’S JOURNEY, SACRED GEOMETRY AND SYMBOLISM, UNIFIED & METAPHYSICS, PHILOSOPHY, MYTHOLOGY AND SPIRITUALITY. MY PASSIONS FOR FILMMAKING LIE IN THE GENRES OF HORROR, GROUNDED SCIFI AND DRAMA. I CRAVE OPEN ENDINGS THAT IMPLORE THE AUDIENCE TO THINK. I WANT TO SHOW THE WORLD WHAT A TRUE STRONG FEMALE IS: SOMEONE WHO IS VULNERABLE, ONE WHO BURROWS IN THOSE DARK PLACES AND SCRATCHES HER WAY OUT OF THE OTHER SIDE VICTORIOUS. I AIM TO INSPIRE OTHER YOUNG WOMEN AND MEN TO EMBRACE THEIR TRUE SELF, COME TOGETHER AS A COMMUNITY, AND DEVELOP TRUE CONNECTION.
