Grab experience where you can
Santana: “I arrived here, jobless, from the Canary Islands in 1994, and wanted to carry on editing.
“I did a very short online course in order to get into low-budget TV. It was great experience and led to me working on National Geographic documentaries.
“You shouldn’t be sniffy about low-budget productions as an editor because it’s fantastic experience. When you’ve got really tight deadlines, it makes you think quicker.”
