Myself in the past. Every day I want to be a better version of myself. Better than I was yesterday.
Is it important to collaborate with your colleagues? How have your professional collaborations benefited your career?
It is highly important to look not just for professionals but for like-minded people. Creatives that see your vision and have a mutual understanding of the idea.

I am not into social media really, but I understand the necessity of familiarizing people with your work. Networking nowadays is the key to getting new job possibilities.
What are your plans for the next 5 years?
I am signed by Broken Cage Studio to produce 4 feature films, we are also in a development of the TV Series at the moment.

I found that this is another way for me to express my visuals. It sometimes gives you more freedom to do quirky shots rather than in a film.
