Dave Penner

Lives & works in Los Angeles, CA

Dave's narrative work has been showcased in film festivals such as Pasadena International, Studio City, Newport Beach, and North Hollywood Cinefest, winning awards such as Best Short, Best Director, Best Indie Short, and Best Adapted Screenplay.

Dave's origins are in comedy, and he currently co-hosts a weekly sketch comedy podcast called Chance & Penner. He also works as a freelance Editor and Script Supervisor.


Whether in his personal or professional productions, or that time he battled an army of villains at his wedding, or that time he created a choose-your-own-adventure horror sideshow maze party, he always strives to bring his audience the unexpected.


His favorite things are hockey, rock and roll, good beer, imagination, and ice cream. You know… the basics.
