About : CV


Dayna Noffke is an award-winning WGA writer and director specializing in character-driven horror, thrillers, and dark comedy.  Her work is fueled by gallows humor and a desire for connection. 

Dayna’s directing style is collaborative. As the keeper of the story, she believes in conveying a strong vision to the crew and actors, and  empowering them to bring that vision to life. 

Relationships are at the heart of her work, which is also informed by her
diverse life experiences, including work as a set decorator/production designer,  fieldwork in Nicaragua and several years in the special education and mental health fields.

She is particularly drawn to tales of outsiders, survival, and complex family dynamics.  Her favorite stories exist at the intersection of the horrible, the humorous,  and the beautiful.

Dayna is best known for her lush burlesque-themed horror short film, TEASER, her Women in Horror Month blood donation PSA, SANGUINO, and her Victorian horror poem, GENTLEWOMAN’S GUIDE TO DOMESTICITY, among other work.

When she’s not on-set or madly typing away, you’ll find Dayna hanging out with her family, traveling on the cheap, studying Japanese, skating, or working on vintage monster models.
