A few years ago, I decided it was time for me to expand my storytelling options and began working toward my Masters degree with a focus on writing and directing narrative content. It seems like an obvious thing to say, but I think it’s important that film/video projects are both visually compelling AND tell a story. I love that this job requires imagination, practicality, empathy, times of solitude and times of intense collaboration.
I believe it is a privilege to collaborate with cast and crew who use their expertise and love of their craft (and art) to bring a story to life - and that everyone deserves to be treated with respect in the process.
Sarah is an extremely thoughtful and patient director whose even temper and extensive knowledge make her a joy to work with. Sarah guided us through every step of the process of bringing the short film Honestly Charlotte to life and was instrumental as a source of advice on the series as well. I would work with her again in a heartbeat.
Working with Sarah Hedar as a Director coming into a four-person collaborative film project was like feeling held warmly by someone "who knows". She was respectful of our vision, collaborative and a supportive "actor's" and "producer's" Director. I felt confident with Sarah at the helm guiding us to the finish line.
