Private Project


Hannah Stanfield's imagination distracts her from running, imagining a world made of paper.
Hannah has gotten a new coach, Jack Wilmot, replacing Jenny Murdoch who has now retired. Jack does not work with Hannah's imagination, unlike Jenny who used Hannah's imagination to help her sprint at her fastest.
We join Hannah and Jack the day before the races qualifying young runners for nationals, Jack and Hannah are both losing their patience with one another, leaving tensions high for tomorrow's race.

Director Statement

Within most of my work I focus on manipulating audience emotion through contrasts or connections in imagery and sound; using image systems to subliminally create correlations for the audience to invoke waves of emotion and realization.
