Another position I held in Milan, Italy, was with a commercial film production company. The post available was that of an Office Manager. It wasn’t exactly in step with my previous experience as a film school graduate and news video editor, but these same things made me compatible with the spirit of the company.

My first media job was as a video editor working on news clips for the website of the Italian news agency, ANSA. I edited using Adobe Premiere Pro on the Milan premises of RealLife Television, the partner company which produced the news items for ANSA.
