    Working with Elizabeth in her studio, I particularly focus on the Post-production of her film-work. Including editing, colour grading and CGI graphics. Recently, Elizabeth's exhibition at the Hunterian museum in Glasgow titled 'Underfoot', featured CGI I created and editing I helped orchestrate alongside Elizabeth.
