Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Laura Mpagi

Sydney, Australia
At the moment I'm woking in post production but I have been looking to get back into production work, particularly directing and producing.

I'm looking to utilise all of my skills again as I have been mainly working with editing the past few years. Would love to team up with people who are as passionate as me about creating something creative, innovative and versatile
