September, 2016

I'm Dawn Davis, an actor/producer based in Los Angeles. Over the past couple of years I've been looking for a feature script to develop that would give me a creatively challenging and compelling character to play. Last year I was fortunate enough to discover screenwriter Jo Hannah Afton and her beautiful work. We started a collaboration and Jo Hannah finished her final draft in July of this year. I'm so excited about HELLS CANYON because it embodies everything I love in a story--complex female characters, wilderness adventure and a transformative emotional journey.

We're now at the stage where the script is going out to directors--I am 100% committed to hiring a woman director--and we are starting to raise funding. This is an independent film in every sense of the word--a project born of passion, raised outside the studio system and determined to thrive against the odds. A critical part of indie success is the village that rises up to surround and support these projects. I hope you'll hit the trail with us as we head out into the unknown. I can promise you that it will be a great adventure.
