Medeea Lascar Bahneanu   
Graphic Designer

A third year graphic design student, very interested in creative direction.

When working on projects I spend the most time on research and ideation. I make sure the concept is very strong, interesting and that it makes sense. This is why exploring the field of creative/art direction attracts me.

I have some experience in the industry, which I've gained through the two internships I have done so far. In my first internship, I was the marketing intern of a telecommunications company called Truphone. While there, I experienced what it was to work in a large corporate environment at an office in Canary Wharf. I designed many things for them including client newsletters, double page spread magazine adverts and even a trade show stand.

Currently, I am a creative intern at Geometry Global. So far this has been an amazing experience, where not only I have gained substantial new skills, but I have gotten involved on a number of exciting internal projects as well as client briefs.

Kidst Ayalew 
Writer and Director

An Ethiopian born Director who has travelled extensively and lived in various places such as Kosovo and Yorkshire. This exploration of different parts of the globe has developed and sculpted my perception of the world and the way I show how is through Filmmaking. An accurate way of describing my directing style is Art House. This is due to its ability for me to work with the genre of drama to convey social realism whilst incorporating very abstract characters that are overcoming multitude of battles. For me, filmmaking is not about following the rules but instead an opportunity to raise a plethora of issues and serve it in a way to create a spark of interest as well as discomfort from the audience. Being from Ethiopia gives me a vantage point to express things differently and offer a fresh take on western film and influences both my writing and directing. I particularly enjoy working on Short Films, Music Videos and Fashion Films.




Charlotte Regan 
Writer and Director

I have been creating low budget music videos since I was 15, rappers on rooftops mostly!

Simona Knuchel

Motion Designer / Filmmaker / Director   

I am a motion graphic designer and have just finished my Masters degree in Moving Image. I have a wide range of experience within motion graphics, seeking opportunities to broaden my skill set.

I am a fast learner and easily adaptable; with a love of storytelling and typography in every way, especially in title design.

While working for a Swiss broadcast company for 8 years, I have been doing editing, colour grading, 2D- and 3D animations and title designs for lots of different programmes. I won an award by Eyes and Ears Europe for my work "Baroque – mon amour“ in Best lead-in "Culture“ (vimeo.com/115794022) and got honored for an explanation graphic I have produced for a documentary (vimeo.com/115768995).

I enjoy the variety of my work but as I worked for so long in television it is not enough for me just to produce “nice pictures”. My love for storytelling, and especially for people whose stories got lost, made me produce a documentary about administrative custody in Switzerland as my final major project.

I believe that documentaries, presenting actual facts about genuine people, can enlarge our imagination, widen our horizons and present us insights of cultures we would otherwise never discover. They transport you into another world, to build an understanding of the struggles other people faced and the circumstances they lived in. Giving a voice and identity to the people who got lost in the story is something I am really passionate about.

 



Josie Kyan   
Scriptwriter/Director


It feels as though I’ve spent most of my life learning to be a director. Although I didn’t start film directing until three years ago, I trained as an actor and dancer at Guildford School of Acting and The National Youth Theatre, and have studied improvisation under some of the top improvisors in the country (including members of ‘Showstopper! The Improvised Musical’).

This training influences the way I direct my performers on set; having had experience of being directed, I am conscious of the type of support my performers need from me as a director. With this in mind I am looking forward to acting in and directing a new play, ‘The Human Mating Dance’, which will debut in July. Furthermore, analysing countless stories and scripts over the years as an actor has also been hugely beneficial to my own writing.

Since 2015 I have written and directed two short films, a British comedy and a science fiction, which are just beginning their festival journey. My current projects have a much more visual focus, I’m enjoying using the forms of short film and art installation to experiment with a more abstract approach to film.

Although directing and fiction writing are mostly where my passions lie, I have begun developing a political website for launch by the 2020 elections. The aim is to use this website as a platform for reliable and unbiased information, through the medium of succinct, engaging videos. After the election I hope to develop the platform further, by expanding the subject matter to include charity focus, especially in relation to those affected by global conflict.

Alongside my own projects, I have had experience of paid work in; casting, on-screen interviewing, directing corporate videos, and first and third assistant directing. I always find it refreshing to get involved with other peoples ideas in these sort of roles.
