The Edit: Hannah Oliver

In #theedit by Hannah Oliver

The Edit is Prancing Through LIFE’s first video feature. These courts métrages are not so much interviews as the editing of LIFE’s little anecdotes in an effort to reveal, in part, the personalities lying behind the screen of Prancing Through LIFE.

“So they puffed out, like this. And for some reason, apparently, that made me look like a sheep …”

Meet Hannah Oliver, Editor of FILM, THEATRE AND TELEVISION on karaoke, American Werewolf in London, and her twelve-year-old self.


Melanie Christie and Hannah Oliver would like to consider themselves an artistic match made in heaven. Among their fans are a small group of middle-aged men who roared that the pair must quit their day jobs when heard drunkenly belting Les Mis in the West End of Edinburgh (yes, that’s most definitely how it went), and also all unfortunates who are forced to share their presence when the two converse exclusively in film quotes. This happens far too often.
