Additionally, I served as a Director/Editor for a music video, overseeing the production process and ensuring a smooth dynamic between the actors and crew. In my role as a Sound Editor, I was responsible for editing audio files, managing archival systems, and handling technical equipment for recording. I also served as a Producer for a video project, where I conducted production research, prioritised set safety, and managed communication between the team and the client. Furthermore, I worked as a Technical Assistant/Actor, contributing to camera setup, lighting configuration, and maintaining continuity during the shooting process.
