In New York, Shira edited the American Indie Feature Film, “Empathy Inc.”, by Yedidya Gorsetsman, to be released in 2018.

Shira has been editing fiction and documentary films since 2005. Her passion for editing and her knack for timing, narrative and storytelling probably has much to do with her background, both as an actress and a DJ. She is also an experienced music consultant. One of her major projects was music research for the critically acclaimed feature film “Borat”.
