Daniel Tenni

Producer and cast, Greenfield

Daniel James Tenni is a West Australian artist that began his film career at Curtin University when a short he wrote and produced called “Restare Uniti” took him to the Cannes Film Festival. From there he forged a working relationship with Danish director Julius Telmer and started their company Tino Films. While working on other projects on his slate the Screenwest 3 to 1 incentive was announced and he saw an opportunity to put something forward. Julius and Daniel developed the initial idea for Greenfield by first building the world and then the characters and then making it all come together. Daniel believes in using film as a medium to inspire the world and set people free.

“We were determined to create something new, something real, not just bank robberies and car chases and Hollywood magic. We wanted something raw and confronting that could make a difference in people’s lives or at the very least inspire discussion about some of these issues that exist within our communities.”
