Anne Frances Ewert.
“In August 1986 I was born in Villingen, Germany. From an early age, drama and film have fascinated me and I gathered some acting experience in different theatres. However, I soon realized that I wanted to become involved in filmmaking instead. After my graduation from secondary school in 2006 I took a gap year in which I participated in a short film course in London and completed an internship on a professional film set in Berlin. As I have always been very interested in different cultures, I decided to study in Scotland rather than in my familiar environment. In 2007 I started to study the ‘Film and TV’ course at the Edinburgh College of Art with the focus on making documentaries and graduated this June 2010.”
