Film Maker, Producer, Writer – Dane Terrell

Up and coming film maker, Dane Terrell, has a few irons in the fire with a new movie Casey and his latest action Sci-Fi novel Black Viking. Dane has recently recruited Noreen DeWulf, Forbes Riley and Joan Severance for his movie Casey. Dane’s book, Black Viking, is the first of twelve sagas, which combines the pageantry and mythology of Lord of the Rings with the cruel, brutality of Conan the Barbarian. Dane gave me an update on his new projects.

Lorraine:

What is your movie Casey about?

Dane:

Casey is about two tortured souls who have come together. Casey is a teenage boy who suffers child abuse from his alcoholic mother and harassment from his school peers. Teresa is a young newlywed who suffers the emotional trauma of a miscarriage.

Lorraine:

What was your inspiration behind Casey?

Dane:

Two of my friends each experienced an unfortunate miscarriage. I watched as friendships dissolved due to a lack of communication and the resulting aftermath of the situation.

Lorraine:

What do you hope viewers and in particular women will gain from watching your movie?

Dane:

It is very important for women to realize that a miscarriage is not their fault. Miscarriage rates are higher in women with rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, diabetes and celiac. The trauma of going through a miscarriage is something you need to talk about and not keep to yourself.

Lorraine:

Please tell me about yourself and how you got your start in the entertainment field.

Dane:

I attended San Francisco State University where I majored in Radio and Television Broadcasting. In my youth I enjoyed watching movies. It was something that was always part of my life. As time went on I developed a pension for writing. Some movies that have inspired my writing have been
White Palace and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolf.

Lorraine:

Tell me more about your most recent book project. The excerpts I have read and the videos on your Facebook page are very creative.

Black Viking

Dane:

In my book, Black Viking, King Dane, the son of a Viking King and an African Goddess, has been decreed by the supreme gods to save humanity from the brink of destruction. In order to prove himself worthy before these very forces of creation, Dane must travel the ends of the earth, conquering supernatural foes as he passes the tests of the Gods.

Lorraine:

Would you say that your book is a Sci-Fi adventure?

Dane:

Yes. Sci-Fi, adventure, fantasy and mythological.

Lorraine:

What advice do you have for young people trying to get their start in the entertainment field such as you have with your movie and book?

Dane:

Never, never give up. Look at the bigger picture and be flexible.
