From HTC, MoreThan, and McDonald’s to HSBC, The Royal Navy and Sky, Sara brings an effortless quality to her films and shows a real flair for big ideas.Sara’s first short ‘Big’ for the Big Issue was met with critical acclaim both within the commercial and film worlds, received a number of awards and was featured in the D&AD annual. ‘Billboards’ for Sky also received British Arrows and Creative Circle nominations and another feature in D&AD.More recently, Sara has also turned her talents towards a number of content driven productions. Sara co-wrote and directed the dark and thought provoking film ‘High’ for shoe designer Jonathan Kelsey which received extensive press and internet coverage following its release and achieved £1.7m of media coverage for the brand.Sara then went on to create, develop and shoot the incredibly powerful digital film ‘Where is your line?’ in support of The Havens, the Crisis Centre that helps rape and sexual assault victims. ‘Where is your line?’ has so far amassed a Cannes Lion and four Golds, including Best Direction at the 2011 British Craft Awards.
