My name is Yasmeen Grandison and I am from Detroit, Michigan. I am an aspiring filmmaker with particular passions in screenwriting, editing, and cinematography. I attend Elon University and I am working towards a degree in Cinema and Television Arts with minors in French and International Studies.
I enjoy the different aspects of storytelling and creating visual images. I aspire to have my own production company where I would create films that share a powerful message with my viewers. I have always been passionate about storytelling since I started writing when I was thirteen years old. I love arranging words to make phrases that help create my own world with my own characters. I also love the creative freedom that I am given through this field.
My interests don’t only reside in film, in that I love to paint, read, cook, and stay active. My favorite films include Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992) directed by Francis Ford Coppola and Atonement (2007) directed by Joe Wright. I enjoy nearly all genres of film. I enjoy, however, drama and religious-based films the most.
This portfolio showcases projects that I have created on my own and through Elon University. In this collection, I also highlight projects that I am working on and have worked on in the past. Here, you will see major growth from my first projects to my most recent projects. I also highlight in my portfolio scripts that I have finished and am working on, along with several film critiques. Thank you for following me in my filmmaking journey.
