Hannah Mason is an EMC actor, filmmaker, and writer originally from San Antonio, Texas. Growing up, she tried every sport imaginable, yet none of them connected with her. It wasn't until she was asked to join the run crew on a middle school production of Willy Wonka that she had her first taste of the arts. The rest is history.
After high school, Hannah received her undergraduate degree in acting and film studies at the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film. She officially became an Equity Membership Candidate in 2021. After graduation, she moved back to Texas, where she is currently based in Austin, TX, and serves as the Director of the Young Filmmakers Program at Austin Film Festival. Before joining the Austin Film Festival, she worked for various non-profits in Austin, such as the ZACH Theatre, Impact Arts, and more. Previously, she has also worked at various film companies, such as PBS (where she worked on the project American Portrait), Radical Media, Argo Media, and others. As an Equity Membership Candidate with the Actors Equity Association, she has performed at various theatres and film companies, such as the Nebraska Repertory Theatre and HBO Max.
Due to her versatile history, she can play and write about a variety of characters, ranging from the best friend to social justice warrior, to (most importantly) Texan.
"Talent alone won't make you a success. Neither will being in the right place at the right time, unless you are ready. The most important question is: 'Are your ready?'"
