Hannah Smith

I am a 17 year old student who has a keen interest in making short films with friends and industry professionals. I am infatuated with Dystopians and the enigmatic storylines they bring to life. I am very organised, hands on with any tasks, not afraid of a challenge and finally a very friendly and bubbly character.

Myself and fellow pupils recently collaborated with the Avon Police to create a short drama on ‘Radicalisation’. We transformed a ‘boring’ piece of text into a visual awareness video. I loved being a part of this project where I was able to share my creativeness and skills with other young people.

From working at the BFI I want to gain skills in all roles within film that I haven’t had the chance to experience. I want to be able to widen my skill set and experience doing editing, sound etc .

I have key skills in the organisation area of producing where I scout for locations, organise meetings between cast and staff on set. I would like to have more experience on the directing and cinematography aspect as I’ve had limited opportunity.

I have a part time job as a sales assistant in Monsoon Accessorize, I cater to customers, provide assistance and offer guidance. Even though my job is stressful at times, especially with challenging customers, my colleagues always find ways to cheer everyone up.
