Dana Newell is a Director and Creative Producer with a focus on examining the human heart and sharing stories for change.

Dana helps brands and screenwriters share retainable ideas and stand out through films with challenging content. As a storyteller, Dana investigates and pulls together a narrative from interviews and researched discussions. With her background in acting, Dana delves in deep with her actors or interviewees to draw our authentic performances or responses. She then creates narratives or documentary style content that is engaging, informative and entertaining for an audience.

Dana is also an independent filmmaker with a slate of video projects. Dana is currently developing a series of content focused on sharing knowledge around sex and female sexuality for young Christian women.

Collectively, being a Director / Producer means the creative matches the budget and the schedule is reflective of the creative. This insures that each project is handed with the upmost efficiency and runs seamlessly from initial brief to final deliverable.

Dana has worked in post production and production since 2005. She has overseen the development of some of Australia’s most notable TV brands, opening title sequences, branded content and commercials.

Her experience extends across multi-platform content creation and branding with Narrative Drama, Reality TV, Virtual Reality, Explainer Videos, Educational content, Documentaries and Commercials. The synergy between all of these deliverables lies with the authentic nature Dana uncovers and delivers the message to the brand’s audience.

Dana oversees a team of Designers, VFX Artists and Production crew, coordinating everything from a film set to post production; motion design, VFX, editing and colour grading, to Virtual Reality.

With her diverse background in content creation, Dana is dedicated to bringing your vision to life, no matter what the project.
