TESTIMONIALS
Production (role):
Brassic S2
Dir: Saul Metzstein
Project details:
"Zsófi edited three episodes of Brassic that I directed. Brassic is the sort of programme that the audience really feel the editing’s presence; there are a lot of montage sequences, moments in which the music selection becomes a prominent part of the storytelling, and no shortage of fast-paced action. Zsófi brought real flair to the programme, excelling in all these areas, and becoming a significant authorial voice in the episodes. On top of that, Zsófi’s sense of humour and comic timing really improved the end product.

Brassic was a complex project politically, with a lot of different voices that needed to be heard in the editing process. Zsófi dealt with that very well, and I certainly felt that in no time at all she’d gained the trust and confidence of everybody involved. I can’t overstate how important that was. If anything, because of Zsófi's skill, her opinions and decisions were taken more seriously than would be expected of such a young editor."
Production (role):
Brassic S2
Exec prod: David Livingstone
Project details:
"Zsofi worked exclusively on three episodes of Brassic and additionally on others. The work she did was focussed and transformative. It was also fast. We will definitely be using her again."
