I was lucky enough to learn the Director role for Kids Shows 2021 as part of the TV/Screen Course at NZBS. Overall it was a really neat experience and covid definitely threw a few spanners in the works, as we went into lockdown the day before our scheduled shoot day. Coming back to the studio after a few weeks was a challenge but an experience that taught me to be resilient and flexible.

It was rewarding as one of the writers of the show, as I enjoyed seeing the project go from an idea, to the script, to the finished product.
