IC Honors Summer Student Spotlight: Hannah Basciano

Meet Hannah, a rising junior Documentary Studies major!


Hannah is extremely busy this summer — she’s interning with Veverka Brothers Productions out of Brooktondale for their documentary Passfire (a film about fireworks culture throughout the world) as their Assistant Producer and will be traveling alongside her producers to Wyoming for their rough cut’s selected screening in August at the Pyrotechnics Guild International Convention. She’ll also be headed to the IC Galway, Ireland arts program in July with Professors Utterson and Monagan. In addition to all that, she’s working on finishing post-production on her own independent documentary!

Hannah has had a great experience with taking Honors classes so far.

“The Honors seminars are my favorite part of the program. They bring together students that are just as curious and free-thinking as I am, creating an environment of conversation and intellectual growth. Every Honors course I’ve taken has been on a subject I had never thought to learn more about—from natural disasters, South American journalism, origin stories, Cayuga Lake, to animal tracking. I’ve learned so much being a part of the Honors Program, and I cannot wait to learn more!”

What are you doing this summer? Honors wants to know!
