About

Hello, I'm Hannah! I'm an illustrator and graphic designer, and I recently graduated from the University of Brighton with a First Class Honours in Illustration. My other previous training includes the BFI VFX residential course, where I worked on a collaborative short film, and Annie Atkins' 'Design for Filmmaking' course, where I travelled to Dublin to learn the art of creating graphic props.

I've recently been onboarded as a ScreenSkills HETV art department trainee for the 2024/25 intake, and I currently have full availability for the upcoming year. I'm particularly eager to work in graphics, but I'm happy to contribute to any and all areas within the art department to see where my strengths best align!

Experience

  1. Work Experience: VFX / Post-Production Runner

    Black Kite Studios · Nov 2023 - Dec 2023

    During my one-week work experience at Black Kite Studios, I delved into the intricacies of studio operations. I not only gained valuable insights into the functioning of a post-production studio, but also had the opportunity to participate in Q&A sessions with industry professionals across various departments. These sessions included discussions with producers, VFX artists, 3D artists, 3D animators, 2D animators, and more. Outside of these sessions, I contributed in fulfilling running duties within the studio.

  2. Online Work Experience: 4Skills

    Channel 4 · Sep 2023 - Sep 2023

    This online work experience allowed me to explore a range of departments within television broadcasting; including consumer insight, social media, legal and compliance, sales and commissioning.

  3. Barista

    Costa Coffee · May 2019 - Sep 2020

    At Costa I consistently delivered excellent customer service while handling money with accuracy. Operating in a fast-paced environment, I adeptly prepared food and drinks, maintained high standards in food preparation and hygiene, and adhered to rigorous health and safety protocols.
