About the experience

I led the production of this project when I was working at EPFL. It was an incredible experience to guide and receive all these people from different parts of the world in our studios. It was also a challenge to coordinate a project done by so many people and maintain consistency across the different modules throughout the project.

They wanted to make the final module more practical. For that we did a case study that was filmed in Senegal. It was an incredible experience! The challenge once again was to collaborate and make people who had never made a video before, become film-makers and co-writers.

The secret? Work hand on hand.

I truly believe that sustainable change comes through development and learning. That’s why I decided to put my services in favor of something that adds meaning and value to the world today as the digital learning .
