Danielle Solzman


Danielle Solzman started going to the movies as a child.  Her earliest memories include watching The Land Before Time at Showcase Cinemas in Louisville, Ky.  It was the arrival of another dinosaur movie that changed her life with the release of Jurassic Park in 1993.  Combined with Star Wars, the two films would cement her career goals of one day becoming a filmmaker.

While a filmmaking career has yet to happen, Solzman writes about movies, television, and books on those subjects at on several platforms.  She is currently a lead film critic for Cultured Vultures.   In addition, Danielle contributes to The Young Folks and Consequence of Sound.  Her main personal website with even more reviews, content, awards, and interview work is Solzy at the Movies.

Through writing about TV/film, Solzman has had the opportunities to interview Paul Feig, Mark Feuerstein, Jim O’Heir, Josh McDermitt, Rachel Crowl, and a number of transgender filmmakers.  In June 2017, Solzman published an article on what needs to be done to improve transgender representation in the media.

Solzman has also studied acting, improvisation, and writing through The Second City Training Center.  She has an outline for an original sitcom pilot with plans to expand into a pilot script by the end of 2018.
