Anetta Jones, graduate of LCC’s MA Documentary Film course, has joined the Guardian’s Virtual Reality (VR) team as a producer – recently working on a film showing how a baby’s perceptions changes through the eyes of the newborn in their first year of life.
Working with VR for just over a year, Anetta has already demonstrated early success in her field. ‘First Impressions’ has so far been exhibited at Sheffield DocFest, Open City DocFest, The Other Art Fair, Raindance Film Festival, PHI Centre Montreal and NY Media Centre, with more screenings are yet to come.
