Velvet Pumpkin Productions

Danielle Turner

Creative Director: Video, Photo, Audio

Danielle has a reputation for not being your typical storyteller. She is a multi-award-winning videographer and film editor who has always believed that a successful motion picture, short or long, includes an interesting story and a great rhythm. This is a medium Danielle has been involved with all her adult life; first as an actress and then as a video producer and editor.

With a strong curiosity, an effort to stay well away from common and an ability to innovate, Danielle is a proven leader in this industry; from the start of her creative visions to taking those visions to completion; working on all kinds of projects with directors, governments and businesses.

Although her work has taken her all over the world, Danielle, born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, continues to reside in what she calls the most exciting and beautiful city on earth, Vancouver British Columbia.

WHAT’S IN A NAME?

The Genesis of Velvet Pumpkin Productions

Danielle reminisces, “Henry David Thoreau. One of my favourite philosophers: I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.  I don’t know what that quote meant to him when he said it. But to me, it meant standing out of the crowd, being different, being out of the comfort zone. Certainly, sitting on a pumpkin can’t be that comfortable. But it’s me being true to myself and exploring what’s out there beyond the comfort of a well used velvet cushion. What is out there? What’s on the other side of common? What’s on the other side of fear?! The myriad questions I ask everyday that drive my curiosity.”
