I have always wanted to be a film director, I worked on film sets and TV sets as an assistant director for several years, and after joining for my bachelor’s degree I focused more on production and a future working as a producer.

Studying at SAE helped me to put the fears of failure behind me. SAE provides practical subjects where you are given a brief for a film and then you each get a role as you would in the industry.
