An award winning and experienced director, I excel at self-shooting creatively and building relationships with contributors, getting the best out of them on camera. I successfully gain access to institutions and people otherwise sceptical of the media. I lead teams, managing both budgets and schedules and often working in hostile situations - for example for the United Nations in Somalia in 2013. I managed a team of 13 while maintaining client relationships with a large and bureaucratic institution. My credits include Producing and Directing for BBC, C4, Al Jazeera, European and US broadcasters. My subject interests are varied, but I thrive with character driven obs docs narratives combined with strong journalistic skills to make powerful films. I successfully collaborate with talent from top broadcasters such as Jonathan Dimbleby to BBC 3 rising star, Reggie Yates. I am equally happy working with camera crews. Read Less

Ruhi managed a team of over twelve production staff at our Kenyan and Somali offices and was responsible for delivering 100 hours of radio and 50 hours of television in a twelve month period. Ruhi is also passionate and a dedicated producer/director with a natural ability to extract brilliant interviews and performances from contributors whilst working under extreme pressure. Her editorial instincts are superb, both on the frontline (in the field) or in the edit suite.

Robert Elliott, Creative Director
