She recently created Ireland’s first narrative-led VR 360 film, I am Galway 2020 as Filmmaker in Residence for Galway’s successful bid for European Capital of Culture in 2020. This film was shown to the ECOC 2020 jury as part of Galway’s bid presentation and was highly impressive and influential in Galway being awarded the designation.
