For day two of YDA week, co-editor of shots magazine Danny Edwards is back to speak to Writer/Director Sara Dunlop.
Since early beginnings on the Top 25 Directors To Watch list by Creativity Magazine, Dunlop is one of the industry’s most gifted storytellers and a highlight of Campaign’s annual top ten Directors.
Today Sara is the UK ambassador for Free The Work, choosing timely, empowering work such as Nike Victory Swim and The RAF’s No Time For Clichés.
Her commercials work has been recognised by Cannes Lions, British Arrows, D&AD, Creative Circle and LIA.
Dunlop’s cult, coming-of-age short film DREAMLANDS about the pressures on young women in a hyper-sexualised, image-obsessed society, was officially selected as the only UK short in competition at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival as well as Brooklyn Film Festival’s Best Narrative Short.
Find out more about Sara’s work here, and stay tuned for another discussion with an inspiring direcector tomorrow!
