Awana M

Hello! My name is Awana Morris.

Being hands on-creating visual and impactful films and or artwork means the world to me. Though I've always had a camera in my hand for photography, I can't deny my main passion has always been writing; scripts, songs, and treatments. After graduating from Oakland School for the Arts (my emphasis Digital Media Production) I promised to continue doing my art. Those three years of intense studies and hands on experience was only the beginning. Now after graduating from New York Film Academy, my promise remains the same. I want to continue doing what I love because I am invested when it comes to a project. Being on set is important to me. Whether I'm a script supervisor or production assistant, shooting behind the scenes - I just loved to fully be involved in the film making industry.
