She was tutored in screenwriting by the American Film Institute’s Martin Daniel on the North by Northwest script program, and Columbia University’s Milena Jelinek at the Mediterranean Film Institute. She trained in directing actors at the National Film and Television School and at the Paris Method Acting Centre. Hannah is currently co-writing Kriss Kross with Sir Lenny Henry, a comedy drama TV series being produced by Tiger Aspect for Channel 4. She is also Sir Lenny’s script consultant and editor on many of his projects, most recently the ITV commissioned Three Little Birds, with Russell T. Davies. Hannah’s co-written feature Fireworks won the American Screenwriters’ Association Grand Prize, Silver in the Page Awards and the support of the Wellcome Trust. As a director Hannah has a raft of prize-winning short films under her belt, all of which were awarded public funding and have been screened on UK television: Night Swimmer won the Grand Prix at Vendôme Film Festival, Sheila won Best European director in Rome, and In The Mood - featuring Kelly Brook as a tap-dancing German spy – won silver in Mumbai and was a worldwide feel-good festival hit. Hannah also writes, directs and produces animations through her company, Palindromicals. She has worked as a journalist for The Scotsman and The List magazine.
