Broadcast Films


Filmmaking is increasingly incorporated into social media and journalism platforms. We are bringing better visual storytelling skills to online digital media as well as traditional broadcast to improve international understanding and create meaningful jobs for media graduates.



Many of my productions are filmed across countries as the stories take audiences into personal interpretations of historical events.
