“Working with Danielle and Minnes Tree Media on the film OFFBEAT was one of the most memorable, fulfilling experiences of my life! Danielle has probably spoiled me for any other filmset in my future because she made my first film experience so amazing! The atmosphere on set was professional, yet fun and lighthearted. Danielle was very patient and gracious in the way she worked with all the cast and crew. She, along with K.C. Mathews, our awesome on-set acting coach, truly drew out the best in the cast! Even under stress, unexpected obstacles (as is the nature of filmmaking), Danielle remained positive and poised and handled everything thrown at her with class and creativity. I would work for this company again in a heartbeat, given the chance, and feel so blessed to know Danielle and company!”

“I was very blessed to be cast in the role of Maggie in the film Offbeat. It was my first major role in a movie, and I have to say it was one of the best experiences of my life. The crew was so much fun to work with, and the direction by Danielle was incredible. She and the whole Minnes Tree team made the entire experience one that was unforgettable and ridiculously fun. From the crazy late nights, to the bloopers, to the bonding moments we had on set, I will always be grateful I was able to work with such incredible people. I have formed friendships that will last a lifetime. Thank you Danielle and the whole Minnes Tree Media Team!”

“Working with Minnes Tree Media on the project, Offbeat was one of the most rewarding experiences I could ask for in the film industry. Everyone involved was dedicated and came together as a family to help bring the vision of Offbeat alive. The experience was a pivotal point in my life that awoke an old passion of mine and made me realize that this is what I want to do with my life. It has even helped me reunite with my spiritual side. If I had a chance to re-do working with Minnes Tree Media, there wouldn’t be one thing I would change.”

K.C. Matthews

“Working with Danielle and the team at Minnes Tree Media on the film Offbeat was an experience that I will always remember. I had been working in Chicago on several “big stages”, in both film and theater, so when I auditioned for Offbeat, I figured it wouldn’t be run as smoothly as what I had been accustomed to. I was wrong. Dead Wrong. Thank you to Minnes Tree Media for taking me on the Offbeat ride. Keep up the tremendous work and here’s to a bright future.”

~K.C. Matthews (Actor, Offbeat)

Amy Delp

“Minnes Tree Media is a creative and energetic group with a passion to tell relatable and redemptive stories. It was an honor to embody the role of Quinn Marshall in the movie Offbeat. The cast and crew became “family”. We witnessed Heaven touch earth as doors opened daily and relationships were built that will last a lifetime.”
