About DeMane Davis:

DeMane Davis’ experience as a copywriter and director affords her the rare understanding of both sides of creating television, film and advertising. Represented as a commercial director through Sweet Rickey, DeMane applies astute observation, writing expertise, and the ability to usher forth intimate, powerful performances to her short and long-form work. She a massive talent, but it is her recent experience with the series Queen Sugar that brings me to this email.

Her inaugural episode of the acclaimed series Queen Sugar debuted on OWN this past season. She’s currently directing a second airing in October. Series creator Ava DuVernay sought out Davis as part of her vision for the show, which is helmed by a roster of women whose work has inspired DuVernay over the years. The production has forged new ground in crew diversity, boasting all female editors in its second season in addition to the female directors for seasons one and two. The connection between Davis and DuVernay was initiated via Twitter, with an invitation for Davis to be a part of “Array Day” a Twitter take-over where people ask filmmakers about process.  After Davis’ second Array Day, she was welcomed as part of the directing talent for the highly-anticipated Season Two of Queen Sugar, which debuted as the number one cable telecast.
