  • It’s important as an artist to look at the world in a unique way. Be comfortable with yourself – and resist the pressure to conform to stereotypes or what’s expected. Tap into whatever strange beauty you see in your subject that you want to share with others.

Maria Hanson - Trainee

Trainee Assistant to Patty Jenkins, Director of Wonder Woman

How are you involved in Warner Bros. Creative Talent?
I am part of the Creative Skillset Trainee Finder scheme and through them I received the amazing opportunity of being involved in a Warner Bros. placement as Patty Jenkins' Trainee Assistant on the set of Wonder Woman.
What does it mean to you to be part of Warner Bros. Creative Talent?
As an upcoming and aspiring director, being part of Warner Bros. Creative Talent is a great opportunity to kick start my career in the film industry. I am so overwhelmed with excitement and happiness because I know this is a gateway to a bright future. The film industry is a tough sector and to know that there is support and training available for new talents is really comforting.
What do you hope to achieve in your career?
I want to become a film director and also a 1st assistant director on feature films. Additionally, I aim to become a business exponent developing the film and television industry in Africa, starting from my motherland, Ghana. My passion is not only limited to telling stories, but I would also like to expose the African community to a more developed system within the media sector. There is a big lack of organisation within the process of film-making and I would like one day to develop schemes and training that will provide the same level of professionalism that is seen in the Western film industry.

As an upcoming and aspiring director, being part of Warner Bros. Creative Talent is a great opportunity to kick start my career in the film industry.

Which Warner Bros. character would you be and why?
I would be Gorgo from the 300 movie. She is a strong and brave woman with strong morals and values. In '300: Rise of an empire' you can see her strength, her abilities of leadership and how the death of her lover gives her more power to conquer their enemies. She is the best example of the quote: Behind every successful man there is a woman!
Tell us something about yourself most people would be surprised by?
Many people are surprised when I tell them I am Italian and I don't drink coffee.
