Hello! My name is Makena, otherwise known as M. B. Harkins. It's great to meet you!

I’ve always been a creative individual. Not only have I been making films since I was eight, but I’ve been writing all my life. Even before I actually knew how to hold a pencil, I would tell stories of all sorts. When I was six years old I finished my first short novel, which I’m still proud of today, and in eighth grade I self-published my first full-length novel, the first of a series. I’ve always loved stories, and converting them into films that people can see playing out in front of their eyes exactly the way I had it pictured in my head makes it all the better.

When I was eight years old, my dad gave me his old cell phone to play around with. Little did I know that this ‘playing around’ would soon be something I’d have a passion for and commit myself to. It didn’t take me long to notice that this phone had a camera and could record videos, nor did it take me long to come up with hilarious and childish ideas for something I liked to call ‘The Random Show’. Back then, I knew nothing about editing. Everything had to be done in one take, and would sometimes take multiple tries. My little cell phone had a pause button on it, to pause the recording, and I’d use this to act as sort of a ‘cut’ from one scene to the next. But if one thing got messed up, so did the rest of the footage. It wasn’t until around 7th grade when I discovered the world of editing.

Most of what I created was done in Windows Movie Maker and eventually, after my laptop died, iMovie. Only just recently have I moved up to Adobe Premiere Pro! I'm still learning, but I intend to keep practicing, and get better and better. Want to join me on this epic journey? If so, welcome aboard the Film Crew!!

Your growing love and support for me and my work mean the world to me, as someone whose goal is to create and inspire. If you are looking for more ways to support me and my projects, Patreon is definitely one of the best ways to do so! If you cannot afford to donate, that is perfectly okay! Liking and sharing my social media is one of the most helpful and meaningful ways to express your love and support - and this method has absolutely no cost to you!
