Midlands Spotlight - Hannah Smith goes Rogue

Midlands Movies finds out about a new sci-fi film from the region called Rogue which is set to land in the Midlands in 2017.
Rogue is the story of an under-siege Earth after the catastrophic results of a rogue planet passing by. Without its own star, the planet is left to roam in space and although most of the world celebrates its passing without collision, one professor may be the only man with the knowledge to truly save life as we know it.
Envisaged by Lincolnshire writer-director Hannah Smith, the film is a student project aiming for high professional standards of production and a passion project for the entire crew who are giant fans of science fiction. The pre-apocalyptic narrative asks question about what people would do if a catastrophe strikes and what to do if you were given a second chance.
After an intense and well supported crowd funding campaign, the filmmakers have raised over £1000 to help cover their production costs
For many years, this film has been in the back of the director’s mind with Hannah explaining that “now is the perfect time to create Rogue and let people into the mind of Quinn, our odd yet compellingly relatable protagonist”.
“Our crew is made up of four hard working and successful students who have created a variety of projects in the past, spanning from the documentary form to a fictional world such as the world of Rogue”, explains Hannah.
“With this experience, we hope to bring an entertaining story forward with Rogue, something that you, as our backers will be proud to have helped us achieve”.
As well as Hannah, her close team is made up of Natasha Cooke as producer and VFX artist, William Gee as director of photography and film editor, and Lois Carr as the sound recordist.
With the fundraising total surpassing expectations at £1,220, Hannah and her team enter 2017 with their plans afoot and with a step into space that they hope we can all relate to.
