Director Sarah Adina Smith (Legion, Room 104, The Midnight Swim) speaks with us very candidly about how she had to make her own opportunities to get her career off the ground. She breaks down exactly how she used an unorthodox approach in making her first Microbudget feature, then tells us how she pivoted into directing TV for Amazon Prime and HBO (no big deal!).
Be sure to look out for Sarah’s name in the credits for the upcoming Amazon Prime series, Hanna.
