Human centric UX research & Design projects
FOUNDER, SYSTEM DESIGNER, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
“The co-founder of Adapt Lab Filmmakers, Margarita Korol, originally volunteered as a job coach at the JCC Manhattan's Center for Special Needs - where she quickly learned the harsh reality of job placement agencies for only administrative roles. She saw passion in a couple of her clients, Leigh Silver and Andrew Johnson, that craved for a career with creative skills. She wanted to expand what was possible in her scope of reach of creating a video production company and further challenge what the film industry could accept. Thus, with her new helping hands and some community organization, AdaptLab Filmmakers was born.”
