Hazel is a writer currently developing a live show, which began as the VR film We Sing In Fire & Blood. With 30 yrs in the biz, mixing digital with real world, she's used a wide variety of media including robots & smell!
Hazel's current project is We SIng In Fire And Blood, a live theatre show in development that is essentially a rock musical that experiments with space and sound. Previously she worked on a childrens' game for the Science Museum. As a writer Hazel has a unique kind of expertise: beginning with 15 years in theatre, film and radio, followed by a decade of experimentation in digital storytelling. She collaborates with digital agencies, technologists and researchers because she is driven by a very strong creative ambition to reach audiences with the magic of storytelling heightened by new technology. Building robots, chat-bots and real world games, what all Hazel's ideas have in common is a strong sense of emotion and real innovation. Hazel has worked for Aardman Animations, the BBC, the smash hit zombie street-chase game 2.8 Hours Later, and has created an Alternate Reality Game for JJ Abrams' Star Trek movie. Hazel featured in Channel 4's "How To Build A Robot". In this documentary Hazel is part of a team creating an AI robot that, when left alone in the street, asks people what it means to be human. The project is lead by David McGoran of Rusty Squid who brought Hazel on board because of her unique set of skills as a street theatre performer, voice artist and a writer who understands 21st century audience experiences.
