Mavi says: I'm a lifelong gaming fanatic with a passion for the arts, notably filmmaking and the intricacies of behind-the-scenes production. I am self-taught in cinematology with a focus on cinematography and I'm continuously exploring and expanding my knowledge through personal research and practice. I've been teaching on Outschool for a year and I really love to explore history through this lens!
