Alana is an aspiring writer/director with an interest in a variety of genre pieces and drama feature films, with a special focus on coming of age stories. Growing up as the Designated “Film Kid,” Alana has spent the last four years at Humber working hard toward her lifelong dream of bringing stories to life onscreen, and exploring the fine balance between homage and fresh originality. Thanks to a vibrant semester abroad in Denmark, Alana had the opportunity to learn more about where film and fashion, her two deepest passions, intersect to create an entirely new world for both art forms – this included the opportunity to make a short, three-part comedy about a haunted jacket, working with an incredible international team. In her fourth year, Alana has been writing a script for a feature film that brings a touch of darkness to the pink world of the iconic 2000s teen movie genre. Along with this, she has had the wonderful opportunity to produce a stop motion short, Stitch Fix, with Rachel Jackson and Mallory Pogue. To further explore and celebrate her love of not only films, but the film community, Alana has recently launched a film analysis blog, @box.dog.critique, in which she breaks down the complexities behind the subjectivity that makes movies of all eras a little bit of good, bad, and terribly corny.
