I am an entry level filmmaker recently graduated from the BFI Future Film Academy as a screenwriter. I am looking for work in the script department both in office and on set, to continue to develop my creative and professional skillset.
“Brioni is a natural writer, she wrote a beautiful and well researched script for our academy team. Our film was about a deaf protagonist and the script covered the story delicately and when a rewrite needed to happen on set she quickly stepped up to the mark. She worked well with her team and always took on the feedback without letting it overwhelm her vision. She has a great understanding of story structure and met all the targets we set her. I highly recommend Brioni and I hope to work with her again in the future.”
Brioni successfully applied for the BFI Future Film Academy (September – December 2019) for which we received over 60 very strong applications for only 20 places. Her application clearly showed us that her passion lay in storytelling, both in terms of what she sought in films and the key skill she wanted to learn more about and to develop. She communicated a keen understanding of the emotional effect of good storytelling and that only from a good script can a successful film be built around. She joined Academy keen to apply this creative ambition and wrap it in the practical and technical knowledge of how to craft a film. Brioni has evidently immersed herself in the art of writing, teaching a creative writing class, studying screenplays and films for inspiring work and developing her own short film script which she intends to develop into a production.Throughout Academy, Brioni has been polite, very attentive and keen to take on a variety of tasks. She has an unassuming character and from the start was very eager to learn about every aspect of production. Her team-mates and tutor felt that the role of Writer would not only match her evident aptitudes but also serve as someone reliable and competent enough to play a central role in the making of the film. I have every confidence that Brioni would be a highly valued trainee as her level of talent and commitment tells me that she could develop a very successful career in the industry. I wish to recommend and support her wholeheartedly in advancing her career in film.
