We felt extremely confident in presenting our series in front of an established film audience, and we would love to work with Sara again."

Janice Jensen: Producer

 

"Sara is an extremely successful and established producer and filmmaker who gave a brilliant talk for WIFV and has consulted with me and number of WIFV members on our films (each time with, frankly, life changing advice - I do not use hyperbole so that is genuine feedback from everyone I know who has worked with her)"

Mikail Chowdhury

"Sara Elizabeth was an incredible resource during the development phase of our film project. She provided in depth research and productive insight into our pitch deck while delivering our prospectus, financial documents and operating agreement in full. She was very collaborative as we brainstormed strategic and creative avenues for our film's platform. I appreciated her detailed approach to help us bring our film to life."
