sheikh ji (2020) A personal doc I used as a sandbox to blur the lines between my own story and the story of my immediate predecessors in Pakistan, exploring mixed-ness, converging stories, and the generational trickiness that is navigating and discovering your own sexuality.

Lisa Jennison (she/her) @lisa.jennison
Film Junior Hi! I'm Lisa, I'm a 3rd year film student at Pratt. After taking Non-Fiction I, I became fascinated with documentary film and decided to make it my focus. Being able to capture a moment of reality and present it in a way that is unique to the filmmaker is something that I want to perfect and be known for some day.
Are You Recording Me? (2019) After going through all my family's home videos, I realized that not one moment was spared from my father's old camcorder. The good times, the bad times, and the times that felt inappropriate to preserve in the first place. I wanted to create a message that sometimes the worst of ourselves are kept behind closed doors or get buried in boxes in the attic, but that doesn't mean they never existed.
Anahita Amirshahi (she/her) @anahitarose + anahitarose.com
Film/Video Junior I’m a multimedia artist, guerrilla filmmaker, and writer based in Brooklyn, New York.

I make narrative, experimental, documentary and hybrid short films, and write both screenplays and poetry exploring different facets of my identity and perception.

Isaac Losacco (he/him) @losacco_art
2D Animation Senior I have always adored watching all kinds of cartoons, especially classic Disney movies. I am one of the biggest Disney nerds you will meet. At Pratt I have been a part of the event planning committee Program Board, my favorite events being the off campus trips to Broadway, as I am also a big musical fan, but am awful at singing myself. However, that's not gonna stop me from singing Disney songs at any karaoke night, character voice impressions and all.
Ghosted (2019) Made for Pratt course Animation Studio 3, this film involves the Rotoscoping technique which is when you animate over live action reference footage. This short follows a ghost trying to scare people who ignore him because they are consumed in using their technology (only the people are what is rotoscoped). All of the photos in the backgrounds I shot myself as well, and I provided the voice acting for the ghost character.

Yessenia (she/her) @yessenia.sanchez21
Film/Video 2021 I’m a senior in Film from California who loves working in post production. As a Latina filmmaker, recently I’ve wanted my work to touch on areas and themes that I can connect to and that others can relate to on a similar level. Whether it's fictional or nonfictional story making or a hybrid of the two, I hope my work sparks conversations and brings curiosity to my viewers.
Las Cosas Sencillas (2020) portrays the dynamics of two different generations, two cultures, and two languages coexisting altogether in the simplest, most authentic way possible. I wanted to bring something on screen that’s becoming more and more relatable with today’s generation and following generations, especially those who come from immigrant families and backgrounds.

Rohan Subramaniam (he/him) @rohan_2711
Film Sophomore I come from New Delhi, India. I'm super passionate about fashion/film and mixing those genres together (sustainably and ethically). I wish to get into grassroots politics and activism back home when I'm done with school. I also am an advocate for averting the climate crisis and better representation and platform sharing for BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ artists in the film/fashion industries.
Use Me (March 2020) I made this film for Fiction 1. The prompt was to construct a film on our personal crises. We could make it as abstract and/or emotional as possible and had to allow our audience to guess what our crisis is. My personal crisis was the sexual encounter I had had. I am always confused by sex, by what I want, how sexual I am, or who I want to have sex with. I've often resorted to tinder and that has led to horrible experiences. I wanted to make a film representing one of my sexual encounters, what went into it, my emotions, and my thought process.
Kiernan Francis (he/him/his) @bigknives + kiernanfrancis.com
