WRITER DIRECTOR PRODUCER
Hit & Run is Hannah Pike's debut film, devised from the feature length script she wrote.
Hannah has a BA in Drama from Hull University, an MA in scriptwriting from Salford University, is a BBC writersroom Future Talent Award winner and was a participant on Paul Abbott’s Shameless shadow writing scheme.
The feature length script for Hit & Run was shortlisted for the industry renowned Channel 4 Coming Up scheme and their Screenwriting Course. Despite the incredibly positive reception, Hannah realised as a first time Writer Director she should create a ‘taster’ for the feature and set about making the short from the first twenty minutes. Hit & Run was made in summer 2016 for £7500.
Hannah is now developing the feature length film, Tomato Rose, and currently looking for producers and investors to join the project.
Jack Deam (Shameless, Father Brown, DCI Banks, Clocking Off and Blindsided) and Katie West (Hamlet, Lela & Co., Blindsided, Punk Rock, A Taste of Honey and United) play the leads, Ian and Loretta. They are the cream of Manchester when it comes to acting talent and are the perfect duo to bring these characters to life.
The hugely talented and generous cast and crew gave four days of their life to help bring this script to life. The film was shot in and around Stockport and the High Peak, edited in Manchester's Northern Quarter over eight days, the score was composed in London, and final post was completed at 3sixtymedia, Media City, Salford.
