Episode Description

In sync with Autism Awareness Month (April) and Day (April 2nd), listen to this inspiring conversation about How Autism Influencer and Animator Dani Bowman builds Brand Buzz through Word-of-Mouth Marketing with 8-Second Branding Podcast Host and Goody PR Founder Liz H Kelly. Dani’s goal is to be the Temple Grandin “role model” of her generation by breaking barriers and encouraging others. She started her DaniMation Entertainment company at age 14, and is now working on a PhD. Through social media, Bowman openly shares her life with fans, and often gets 200-400 likes on Facebook posts. Dani also promotes her brand by actively participating in industry events, public speaking, receiving awards, having partnerships, and premiering nine animated short films at San Diego Comic-Con International over the past seven years. As a social entrepreneur, her goal is to reduce the “grim” autism unemployment numbers (90% are unemployed or under-employed, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics) by empowering youth with animation skills through her classes and jobs. Dani’s taught 2000+ youth on the autism spectrum and other abilities how to do animation at Joey Travolta’s Inclusion Films summer boot camps and DaniMation Entertainment classes (and taught one-on-one classes during the pandemic, that will continue.) Bowman’s work has been featured in the Los Angeles Times, Animation World Network, OC Weekly, BBC Spotlight Evening News (DaniMation UK) and more.
