AMIRA AFENDI - PRODUCER / PRODUCTION MANAGER
Amira has been part of the team for almost 10 years, with a combined experience in production management and administration, pitch development and documentary production.
Amira mainly hustles behind the scenes - shaping story and script through meticulous researching, establishing relationships with clients and collaborating closely with production team.
Having worked on projects from a spectrum of genres - from the environment, construction to human interests, Amira is especially interested on projects that give voice to the unsung heroes, the forgotten ones and marginalised communities - when a nobody does something extraordinary.
