Bio

My name is Becki Couch and I'm an 21 year old FDA Film and Media Arts Production graduate. I have been studying film for over 6 years and have made several films, both for myself and clients. My main interest is in classic Hollywood films which have greatly inspired me with my scripts and the cinematography of my films. Although I have mainly focused on script writing and directing I have also worked as an camera operator, director of photography, editor and producer.

The photo at the top of the page is my own I took as part of my experimental unit research.

About me:

Hello I am Lizzy aka Seanto, creator of Cloudburst Media Corporation. I'm a 22 year old girl studying the art of film at university, which means I love learning about ways in which I can tell a good story. This is illustrated throughout the media I have produced, which is showcased on my youtube channel, and through the online forum roleplay that I take part in. The internet is a hugely relevant resource for me as it helps me stay connected with the things I love. In the future I want to make travel videos for a living. Though If given the chance I would also like to produce some mumblecore and korean styled dramas. Though at the same time I love all things related to making film. 

I have travelled in Europe, where I very much enjoyed the new experiences I had and hope to go to South Korea, China and Japan in the near future where I plan to immerse myself in the culture, including K-Pop.

In addition to my media productions, I have a background in Graphic Design, which I have integrated into my filmmaking, through my interest in typography and layout. I have also put my Graphic Design skills to use by producing things like logos, flyers and posters, for my course .  

This page illustrates my skills and vision as a filmmaker, so please enjoy watching.
