Palesa MAMONKA Mokoena

MultiMedia Producer

Summary

I am an aspiring Producer/Director and Videographer with a burning passion for our constantly growing media industry, more especially Social Media and it's ever changing trends. I have worked on numerous projects under the aforementioned positions and I'm always ready for a new challenge. The equipment I have worked with include Sony PD's 170 and 175, Sony NXCams, as well as a Canon 5D. The editing softwares I am efficient with are Final Cut ProX and Premiere Pro.

I am a young creative with a hunger to go into our industry and make my contribution, whilst also learning from others as I am a team player with good communication and people skills but I am also confident in taking initiative when need be. I have learnt that timing is vital in the media industry and am, therefore, very prompt and deadline driven, not compromising, however, on quality, paying much attention to detail.
