Hi. My name is Courtney Daniels and I’m a writer-director of independent films. Besides pressuring people to follow their passion,
I love animals, muscle cars, matcha lattes, and anyone with a strong regional accent. My favorite topic right now is middle-aged people acting nuts–aka midlife crisis. 

I think astrology is b.s., but I’m a Scorpio. What are you? I don’t know the traits of each sign, so you’ll have to tell me. Then I’ll say, “Wow, you’re SUCH a Virgo.”

Whatever sign you are, I hope you’ll stick around. We’ve got stuff to break down together. To receive notice when I write new posts, or if you want to be alerted when I release a new film, please subscribe. (See the “Subscribe” button at the top right of this page.)

Tonight, when you’re looking for a movie to watch, I hope you’ll consider What Other Couples Do. Over two million people have seen it and there are 570 reviews on Amazon. (My favorite negative review is just 2 words: “No nudes.” Like there’s not enough porn on the net for that guy?? When I told my editor, Jason, this 2-word review, he laughed so hard he cried. It was great.) Here’s a link to the movie on Amazon. Or you can watch it here on Tubi. 

If you want to know how I began making films independently, here’s an interview I participated in, right after the pandemic started, with two talented and funny actors I work with often, Mike Friedman and Matt Ferrucci.
