<-- portrait of Daniel S. Duvall by artist Paul Beel
-- Welcome to the official site of Daniel S. Duvall --
I am a graduate of the UCLA Professional Program in Screenwriting, and I have repeatedly placed in the top five percent (quarterfinals) of the Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting contest. I was a regular contributor to Creative Screenwriting magazine from late 1998 until early 2001.
In the mid-1990s, I played fretted four-string electric bass guitar in a short-lived band called Dewey and the Porkbellies. You can hear some live tracks performed by this four-piece group by going to the LINKS section of this site and clicking on Soundcloud.
On the 18th of September in 2002, my favorite band (Fairport Convention) kindly allowed me to sit in as a guest bassist for one tune (Portmeirion written by violinist Ric Sanders). You can enjoy footage of this historic event by going to my profile on Google+ (via the LINKS tab above). Note that the YouTube version has wonky audio, so avoid it.
I currently dwell in Ohio with my two cats (pictured below). The brown boy is named Alley Cat, and the white girl is Thalia.
