Film Studies - BA (Hons)
Having written several screenplays and contributed to production of numerous independent film productions, Jack Brand has accumulated a wide portfolio of work, ranging in genre from surreal comedies to cyberpunk thrillers. Presenting his first full screenplay project, OmniScience: Purple Haze, in a screenwriting module, he has keenly pursued creative writing related to film ever since, becoming a regular of the National Centre for Writing in his hometown of Norwich as well as other conventions such as the Royal Television Society. Jack has lent a hand in the development of his friends’ and classmates’ projects by editing the scripts and brainstorming new ideas alongside them. This culminated in a great international opportunity to provide creative feedback to a German director in his comedy-horror screenplay.
Beyond film production, Jack has learned valuable skills from having worked as a dispatch call handler at the NHS 111 service for over two years, briefly assisted as an intern at the Cambridge Film Festival, and acted as Course Representative for Year 2 Film Studies.
