Wood remarks that "I find what attracts me the most to a project is one where I can work collaboratively and in synergy with all arms of production. Working with the director, actors and artists and all the way through post and finishing. Those exciting occasions where a team can pull together, shape, hone and refine the creative vision is something I truly live for. And to try to have as much fun as possible in the process!"
