MARINA WATSON

Marina thoroughly enjoys translating the director's vision into cinematographic and suitable locations, and works across documentary and narrative.

 

She has plenty of experience as a local producer and fixer, having worked with The New York Times, BBC and Italy’s Rai TV, among others.

 

She also has experience as a writer, researcher, photographer and director.

 

The one common thread in Marina’s experience is her passion for storytelling. Her own work tends to focus on intimate human stories in underrepresented communities.
