PUBLIC VERSION. Actress and filmmaker Hannah Fierman (V/H/S, SIREN, ST. AGATHA, DARK CIRCLES, CREEPSHOW, VAMPIRE DIARIES) shares her career journey with Adam, Joe, and Arwen. From making ends meet financially in the early days… to the inspiration Hannah found in seeing Baz Luhrmann’s ROMEO + JULIET for the first time… to adapting the play she wrote for her college senior thesis into her first short film… to learning that the first feature film she ever acted in just so happens to be “huge in Nigeria”… to the success of V/H/S and the process of turning the segment that Hannah starred in (AMATEUR NIGHT) into a stand alone feature film (SIREN)… to studying the movements of both cats and bats in shaping her performance as “Lily” in V/H/S and SIREN… to stepping into the director’s chair on the upcoming DARK CIRCLES (currently in post-production)… to the beauty of being part of a filmmaking community filled with solid and reliable artists/friends you can call upon… to the importance of always continuing to move forward rather than dwelling on difficult past experiences… Hannah’s positive outlook and sincere love of storytelling is absolutely contagious.
Dr. Arwen provides “Hollywood Therapy” to a filmmaker who agreed to work on a project that is beginning to show some serious red flags, Hannah shares her strangest encounter with a fan, and Adam and Hannah profess their love for cinematographer Jan-Michael Losada (VICTOR CROWLEY, DARK CIRCLES) “one million percent” in this extremely enjoyable artist on artist conversation about the filmmaking process.
