Margarida was then accepted onto The Grierson Trust’s renowned DocLab In Focus: Editing. Supported by Netflix, this competitive training scheme provides extensive mentoring in storytelling through the edit.  Her work placement was as Assistant Editor on Netflix documentary ‘Running With the Devil: The Wild World of John McAfee’.

Margarida has a very bright future as a documentary editor.  She is particularly passionate about investigative projects and true crime, she really enjoys exploring the layers to their stories, trauma and resolution.
