Enjoy!

    Editor48h Film Project
     - London, United KingdomFreelance
    Was nominated for best editor for working on the film, David and Bathsheba, for the 48h Film Project and had the pleasure of shooting it at Pinewood Studios. This required us to plan, film, edit, sound design and colour-grade within 2 days. We were given a genre, a character, a line and 2 props which had to be incorporated within the film. I worked among great professionals under immensely high time pressures and could keep organised and deliver necessary results as an editor. As a result of David and Bathsheba winning best film, it is going to be screened at Filmapalooza in Cannes.

    BA FilmmakingNorthern Film School
     - Leeds, United Kingdom
    Studying film-making at the Northern Film School has allowed me to develop basic skills in all aspects of cinema. This included sound, editing, production management, directing, cinematography and art direction. Through specific projects from University I have had the chance to develop team working as well as personal skills. From these workshops I have a good level of understanding on the process of developing a film. My interest for editing lead me to further my knowledge within this specialism in 2nd year and 3rd year, allowing me to practice and develop a variation of post-production skills in creating films within the course.
