About the film
Hannah Stanfield’s imagination distracts her from running, imagining a world made of paper.
Hannah has gotten a new coach, Jack Wilmot, replacing Jenny Murdoch who has now retired. Jack does not work with Hannah’s imagination, unlike Jenny who used Hannah’s imagination to help her sprint at her fastest.
We join Hannah and Jack the day before the races qualifying young runners for nationals, Jack and Hannah are both losing their patience with one another, leaving tensions high for tomorrow’s race.
‘Tearaway’ is a student made short film, gathing 30 students from three different societies, University of Sussex and Sussex Downs College together to learn techniques and create a short film all around deadline dates.
The past few months have been manic, but amazingly everything has seemed to come together!
I hope you enjoyed the film!
