Sarah's filmmaking journey started in 2014 with the Dream to Screen competition hosted by Cineworld Cinemas. She was working as a waitress when she made her first film, 'The Cyclist' which won the competition and was nominated for a BAFTA Scotland New Talent Award.
After that you couldn't get the camera out of Sarah's hand. She spent 4 years making films with collective One More Stone, a group from across the UK. During this time she was awarded the Sky Academy Arts Scholarship and won filmmaking awards that took her to Paris, LA, Seattle and Florida.
In 2019 Sarah put herself in front of the camera for the first time when she made a short film on holiday called 'The Aviary', and then made 'Scare' for the 48 Hour Film Project. 'Scare' won the competition and has been a hit in both national and international film festivals, it is now BAFTA qualifying. With this, Coven Productions was founded and since then Sarah has been committed to storytelling that is honest, feminist and fearless.
Sarah currently works full time for Edinburgh Napier University as a Film Producer and undertakes a number of freelance projects for clients such as BBC The Social, the YWCA Scotland, Loud Poets, In The Works Theatre, Tin Can Audio and many more.
Sarah lives with her noise-making husband (she can't hold it against him, he's a sound designer, it's kind of his job) in the west end. She enjoys reading, painting and eating copious amounts of mashed potatoes.
