About Dawn

I'm president of Ron de Cana Productions, Inc. in Los Angeles. I've made 16 films since 2000 which have won 46 awards, including honors from Canon USA, Inc. and JVC-Tokyo. I also act and direct for other outlets, besides my own company. I have also judged film fests in Italy, France and Chicago. I'm fluent in English and Spanish, proficient in Italian and Portuguese. I read and understand Catalan.
I received a B.S. With Distinction from Northwestern University in Radio-TV-Film and studied acting at Second City in Chicago and with Jeff Perry, co-founder of Steppenwolf Theatre Company, and David Razowsky, former artistic director of Second City-Los Angeles.
In December 2014, I was honored by the Fellini Foundation in Rimini, Italy for my four-film series "Over a Cheever". In June 2015, I was a participant in the prestigious Big Sur International Film Series at the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur, CA.
