About Deanne

Deanne Reynolds discovered her passion for horror films at the tender age of 7 after first viewing The Exorcist with her parents in their tiny living room in Hartford, WI. It was then that she daydreamed for years of making her own possession film one day. During high school, she attended summer art programs during high school at MIAD (Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design) where she dove deep into photography, sculpture, graphic design and painting and after graduating set her sights on Columbia College Chicago to study film directing. It was there that she first learned to use a Bolex and cut and tape film editing, as well as darkroom photography and film theory. After winning the Student Academy Award, she relocated to San Francisco and assisted local photographers while transforming her love of painting into paying the bills as a make-up artist, which it turned out she was really good at. She moved back to Chicago after signing with FORD Artists as one of the youngest make-up artists ever signed to their roster. From there she went on to work on several hundred photo shoots until she decided to get out of the cold and move to Los Angeles. In LA, she continued her work as a make-up artist and worked on several commercials and big studio films while also starting to direct and creative direct music videos. She was also one of the founders of the Venice Beach photo and production studio, Box 24 Studios. Since then she has shot album covers and music videos for pop icon, Sam Sparro, press and videos for LA R&B Artist, D.Wing, music videos for eclectic R&B trio, Tiny Hearts (she is also their lead singer) as well as several other fashion campaigns and portraits. She still resides in LA and is currently writing and developing that horror film she always dreamed of.
