Courtney Knowles

Hi I'm Courtney Knowles, an aspiring director/producer in both film and theatre.

I am leaving this degree having had the opportunity to write and direct a few pieces which you can see below. Alongside this, I have bettered my skills in all departments such as production design and cinematography to give me the creative freedom to pursue a variety of projects after graduation.

My main focus is short films and documentaries and I would class myself as an experimental filmmaker/photographer. Outside of university I have made some great connections through videography work for events and festivals. This year I will be

filming a documentary at Glastonbury comparing the physical festival to their VR success of last year. I will be staying in Bristol for the near future and will be continuing to write and direct shorts and documentaries. I am also part of the 'Smile You're On Film' collective.

Always looking for new work and creative individuals!
