Alana and I worked together on a fast turn around, online drama mini series. She is an awesome team player, full of great ideas and not afraid to get her hands dirty. She has great energy on set and is a total people person. She’s a pleasure to work with and an asset to any crew. I would highly recommend snapping her up for your project - she will no doubt have bucket loads of value to add

I worked with Black Ant Films to create a body of photos and videos for a project. Alana and her team were easy to work with, understood what we needed, and delivered everything on time. I enjoyed watching them work and seeing them interact with our staff and consumer representatives. She made everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. I'd love to work with Alana again.

I've worked with Alana on Numerous occasions, and she's not only a fantastic person to have on a team due to what she brings in regard to her professional skills, but also from a personality perspective. In terms of her professionalism, she's incredibly hard working, has a fantastic passion for her craft which infects all around her, and will just keep going until the the job is done, the shot is in the can, or the production is complete. She takes on all tasks within her remit and then searches for what more to do to help a project. In terms of personality she's a fantastically positive person to have around and a real asset to any team or group.

Alana is a truly creative soul and is highly detail-oriented in everything she creates. From documenting corporate content such as Council’s fortnightly meetings, through to designing animations and video series for social media campaigns, Alana finds a way to bring the human element out. Alana is a natural storyteller which is evident in the way she works and reflected in the final product which is of an extremely high standard and always engaging for Council’s diverse audiences.
When filming, Alana’s unique warmth and empathy makes all of her subjects feel relaxed and at home in front of her lens. Alana makes such beautiful content because it’s not just her job but her creative outlet. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough to others and continue to do just that whenever anyone says they need a content creator.
