Company Mantra Film


I see myself as a storyteller. My years of working in different parts of the film industry, many of them as a film editor, has given me knowledge and experience within many technical, practical and creative aspects of the filmmaking process. This is a huge asset in my daily work as a producer. There will always be a market for good stories, and I believe in providing these by creating a safe environment where writers and directors can thrive. I enjoy working closely with the filmmakers and helping them to hone their ideas and develop their stories, especially in development and post-production.
