Ones to Watch
Welcome to our brand new monthly feature on Hiive...Ones to Watch!
Each month we'll be selecting four creative professionals on Hiive who've impressed us with their drive, talent, potential and ideas.
Here are the personalities behind July's Ones to Watch....
Elliot's a busy guy; in his own words 'I'm juggling a lot...!' But in between being an actor, writer and filmmaker, he's inspired by sitting down in a greasy spoon, and wishes there was a 'mood-board app' to collect sound, art, pictures and words (...any app creators out there?)
Jade is a documentary filmmaker and journalist and was recently shortlisted for the Tower Hamlets Creative Talent Fund. She's interested in stories about resistance, women's rights, the relationship between art & politics, and advises creatives to always keep their integrity, listen and learn...
Emanuele's an Italian documentary photographer who now considers himself a Londoner by adoption. Last January he travelled to Ecuador to investigate the legacy of oil exploration on the people and environment of the Ecuadorian Amazon rainforest. He's inspired by the writer George Orwell, the photographer Tony Ray Jones and the photojournalist Roger Hutchings.
Antonia has a background in environmental and human rights law, but she decided to pursue film/documentary with a social angle instead, starting from scratch with no formal training. She's currently producing a film about the changes in Hackney and encourages young people to go out there, meet people and ride the wave!
