SARAH HICKEY

Sarah started out in this world as a professional swimmer, evolved into the world of musicianship, and ultimately ended up in her happy place... film. Sarah's background and studies in music mean that sound design and soundtrack often play a large role in her productions, always thought about in the planning stage, never as an afterthought. And the swimming? She admits that this raised her to be fiercely hard-working, and maybe a little competitive.

As an emerging director, Sarah's strengths are becoming recognised primarily in performance-based works, either with talent or non-talent, capturing a rawness and authenticity in people on screen. Whether it be drama, comedy or documentary storytelling, she prides herself on developing a mutual respect with performers on set (and feels this shows in her work).

In 2018, Sarah's debut series Dee-Brief was hailed by the likes of FILMINK, Frankie Magazine, and Cinema Australia, and has been acquired by Channel 11 and Tenplay for broadcast in late 2018.

Sarah has one philosophy in her approach to film: Every. Detail. Matters.
