I undertook work experience with the Louisiana Channel - the Louisiana Museum's online video platform, where I spent several months working on a short film. I interviewed esteemed Danish artist Asmund Havsteen-Mikkelsen at his studio in Copenhagen, focussing on his view on the modern world, architecture, and his ambition to promote sustainability in his work. Alongside three talented filmmakers, I co-produced and co-edited the final video in order to align with the high standards and brand of the Louisiana Channel. Click here to watch my video.
