is a writer and director from Denver, Colorado. She attended Colorado Film School for three years, and finished her degree in Humanities at Metropolitan State University.

In 2018 she co-founded Sad Girl Productions, a female-led production company with a focus on female driven stories. That same year, she wrote and directed the webseries Filtered Water, and short film Not Your Mother’s Scouts. She was the production designer for all 3 seasons of I Put the Bi in Bitter, as well as a writer and actor for the last season.

Other than film, Dannah enjoys reading, swimming, and drinking coffee. She hopes one day to have a corgi and live somewhere where the sun doesn’t set. She is also always looking for book and movie recommendations. 


Besides Sad Girl, Dannah also runs five other Instagram accounts devoted to a variety of subjects such as dogs, fake Ray Ban sales, a Legally Blonde quote, and herself.

is a screenwriter, director, and activist who grew up in Colorado, and lived in Beijing from age ten to sixteen. Falling within these groups herself, Marin is passionate about creating inclusive films that celebrate women, POC, and LGBTQ people. Her work often explores the intersections of these identities through the lens of comedy, romance, both, or neither — most notably, her coming-of-age web-series I Put the Bi in Bitter. Her films have screened at festivals across the country including SeriesFest, ClexaCon, and Denver Pride. She previously served as a board member for Women in Film and Media Colorado, and she was part of the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Task Force at the University of Colorado Denver, where she graduated with a BFA in Film & Television.

Besides film, Marin cares about her fellow adoptee community, and currently volunteers with Adopteen. She also enjoys juggling, board games, playing violin, and collecting turtle figurines.
