The Floating Man

In this intimate self-portrait, Michael V. Smith’s The Floating Man sources his art practice to examine a lifetime of untrue stories about his body. Beginning with interviews in his hometown, and moving forward through mentors and students of his own, Smith explores the kaleidoscope of a body’s relationship with gender.

Sarah provides a wealth of skills but she also has the special ability to empathize with competing interests, egos, backgrounds and competencies. While working with Sarah on multiple projects, she proved to be highly creative, intelligent, disciplined and resilient.

Sarah speaks the language of film impeccably and having her as my editor for "Now is the Time" has been both a privilege and a learning experience

Christopher Auchter
Now Is The Time

Sarah is a wonderful collaborator and a joy to be around and work with. Not only is she highly organized and efficient, but she brings to the table experience and ideas that help elevate a story. From the start to final export I felt in great hands.

Her patience, creativity, and technical knowledge made the entire post-production process easier. Sarah brings her education and experience as a director to her editing process and sees story with a keen eye from multiple angles.

Last Stand To Nowhere

I’ve been working in post-production since 2001. I currently work as a freelance editor but my formative years as an assistant editor gave me a solid technical foundation and understanding of the entire post-production workflow. Working with smaller boutique production companies on independent productions also gave me a chance to participate in all stages of a film’s life cycle – from development to delivery.

I’m a storyteller, and I love helping people tell their stories visually.  I work in narrative and documentary, long and short form. I choose projects that I can both contribute to and learn from, and aim to get to the heart of the story and build it with every edit decision.

I don’t know if films can change the world but I think a story well told can change us - by showing us what it is to be human, to connect, feel, consider another point of view, opening up new worlds, challenging the status quo and even simply to entertain - and that to me is something worth doing every day.
