Dark Kidney Films
The Dark Kidney Filmmaking Effort was started in March 2011 by film buff Scott Danzig. The name Dark Kidney spawned from an inside joke. Scott was reassuring his girlfriend that a seemingly “evil” friend was really warm inside, like a kidney. The random nickname, Dark Kidney, has an artistic, rebellious element to it, so the name stuck. Filmmaking is a collaborative effort and Dark Kidney is no exception. The group consists of seasoned professionals and novices working together to bring their projects to fruition. While on a shoot, all hands are on deck, with pros helping the newbies learn the intricacies of the production process. In its relatively short existence, the Dark Kidneys have produced 3 movies and a PSA for the Human Trafficking Awareness Council. They have also started a writer’s circle to create content. They will to continue to grow and expand in 2012, so look forward to them producing more movies!
