Dayna Noffke is a screenwriter and director, who has brought her unique brand of storytelling,
dark humor, fangirl-infused enthusiasm and obsessive work ethic to Atlanta, Georgia.
Her work in the horror genre is informed by her experiences and her lifelong love of film. Her
travels have taken her from a childhood in St. Louis to stints in New York, Boston, New Orleans and even Branson, Missouri. Along the way, she picked up a degree in physical anthropology/primatology, logged time on a research project on mantled howler monkeys in Ometepe, Nicaragua, spent a few years as a high school special education teacher, and earned herself a roller derby name.
Dayna fell into filmmaking after a chance encounter brought her to the set of Rob Zombie’s
Halloween 2. Within two months, she had written and directed her first short film with a cast and crew full of friends, including Andrew Shearer of Gonzoriffic films. She had caught the bug and directed 9 more short films between 2009 and 2017.
Her film catalog runs the gamut from “backyard” no budget fare – such as the well-received 2011 film, MOUSE, praised for its naturalistic acting – to recent projects such as late 2017’s Teaser, a lush burlesque-inspired period piece that is hitting the festival circuit in 2018.
Dayna’s films have been screened at numerous festivals including Women in Horror events,
Rome International Film Festival, Spooky Empire’s Film Festival, Buried Alive, VHS, Florida
Film Festival among many others. Her screenplays have been chosen as official selections and finalists in screenplay competitions and showcases such as Oaxaca Film Festival, Stranger With My Face and Filmquest.
Dayna is currently in development for a horror feature inspired by a classic Victorian short horror story, along with working on new short films and logging lots of time traveling with her family, visiting historical and haunted sites, riding roller coasters and forging friendships all along the way.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this year’s Blood Drive campaign for several
reasons. One of my favorite things about filmmaking is the collaborative nature of the art. I love meeting people, working with other amazing talents and bringing it all together to create
something bigger than anyone of us. This project encouraged me to stretch my artistic
imagination and to reach out to new people to help realize this vision, which is unlike any other
project I have undertaken to this point in my career.
I love that there are 30 PSAs being released — that we are a part of something much bigger.
This is a wonderful chance to meet new artists and to see and support their work.
Of course, most importantly, our entire team is thrilled to be supporting the cause of blood
donation. I have personally been the recipient of blood transfusions at three different points in
my life. I do not know what would have happened had that blood not been available when I
needed it. I want to express my gratitude to blood donors and to put a face to this cause.
When you give blood, you are helping a real person – someone’s mother, someone’s sister or brother or baby… Although the need for donated blood can be greater during times of disaster, there are people who are counting on transfusions each and every day. We are honored to help spread the word and remind everyone how important it is to donate blood!”
