Executive Producer- Sara Elgamal
My journey began with a passion for politics and wanting to 'save the world' by telling stories that matter. This lead to an Honours Arts Degree at York University (Toronto) where I majored in Political Science, followed by a Broadcast Journalism Diploma at Seneca @ York. It wasn't long after interning at a news station that I realized my passion was in film production, where the creative possibilities were endless.
This led me to full-time work at post-production houses in Toronto working alongside major international agencies like Saatchi & Saatchi, Ogilvy, Publicis, BBDO and Cossette to name a few; To Dubai where I produced 'The Flex' (MTV Unplugged style show) for Fox Arabia; and eventually London where I was post-producer at one the leading animation studios in the city Darkside Studios, and later was approached to produce for the first ever in-house production company at Iris Worldwide London where I created weekly branded content for brands like Adidas , Samsung, Mini and Shell.
While working full time in the advertising world, I always made sure to find time for my 'passion projects' - creating innovative short films, music videos, and documentaries. Allowing me to continue to learn and grow by collaborating with fellow creatives and artists who inspire me both locally and internationally.
I have since gone on to produce many award winning projects , including ‘Sonder- Too Fast’.
