The MFA Creative Practice allowed me to expand my understanding of working with performing bodies in architectural space and how a camera can intrude upon the site-specificity of the live body in motion. With excellent facilities and supportive faculty and staff, Trinity Laban offered a unique platform for me to build my career as a film director.Michaël Boucherie
