about
Hannah Dougherty is a voracious filmmaker working predominantly on short films, television commercials, and music videos and she is represented by Velvet.la as a director. Her dedication to storytelling has catapulted her into creating numerous live-action and animated short films and music videos in Sydney, Melbourne, New York, Paris and Spain. Hannah has had four short films selected to screen in international film festivals such as Montana International Film Festival, Down Under Berlin, Sydney's For Film's Sake, Festival Du Film D'Animation De Savigny, Hamilton Film Festival, Brooklyn Women's Film Festival and the Utah Arts Festival with her one-woman cast and crew film 'Mates' receiving an award at Vancouver International Women In Film Festival. Her most recent stop motion film 'Theo and Celeste' won the People's Choice Award at IndieFlicks UK and has been part of the official selection for nine film festivals and gained a Vimeo Staff Pick, it is currently still on the festival circuit after having been chosen to screen at TedX Sydney 2018.
Hannah’s first role in the industry was designing animated television commercials and since then she has worked for various production and post-production companies such as The Gingerbread Man, Medium Rare and One Green Bean for an array of different clients including Universal Music, Qantas, Sydney Dance Company and The Brandenburg Orchestra. She has taken on the roles of animator, writer, director, cinematographer and editor. Hannah has created an eight-part computer-animated web series titled 'Bendy West' and she is currently working on a new web series investigating the human experience which involves interviewing real people on various topics and then animating those interviews using sock puppets.
Her mission has been to learn firsthand the many mediums and languages of filmmaking in order to communicate with her cast, crew, and audience to create engaging stories and this challenge has seen her working with a variety of storytelling mediums from live-action and hand-painted animation with a focus on stop motion and puppetry.
