Hannah - 2017

My time spent at the University of Auckland taking part in the Screen Tools program was unforgettable! The program tutor is an industry professional who gave first hand experiences and came with an abundance of professional knowledge. The course was quite intensive and the four weeks were incredibly busy, but I loved every second of it! I decided to take part in the course because it was a practical look into world of film and television production, where as students we took on roles from the industry and collaboratively made a short film. The course gave me so much confidence in my abilities to one day be successful in the film/television industry.
