Sarah Lipi

Award Winning Filmmaker

When Sarah Lipi was merely a child, she was considered the princess of getting attention. After all, she was always persistent in getting attention from her parents. This attitude laid the foundation of an attribute which helped her in the later stages of her career as a professional filmmaker.

At a very early age, 2 years old, due to an unknown illness, Sarah had to stay in an isolated area in a hospital for a long time because doctors simply believed that her illness was contagious. She used to escape from the lonely room several times and make the nurses run after her like on the James Bond’s movies. Her main goal was to arrive at the front desk to hang out with a kind group of nurses who always gave her attention. Even though her stay was always limited, she thoroughly enjoyed every single bit of it. She remembers that time as fun and enthralling. Time passed, Sarah experienced her first miracle, none of the nurses from the group got sick and that was the first time Sarah could ever find out that she loved to connect with people. And that was a start of never-ending attention-seeking ventures for Sarah.

Two years later, during the ceremony at the church, Sarah was waiting for her mom to finish playing the organ. Sarah got bored and wanted her mom’s attention. Her mom couldn’t stop playing the organ, so Sarah had this idea to go to the front by the microphones and take her clothes off. It was because in her mind this was the only way her mom could look at her. Her mom got so upset! Her mom says that Sarah was definitely punished and Sarah can’t believe she did that! It was not a preplanned step which Sarah took at the Church, it was sheer instincts.

When Sarah turned 13 years old, her parents had already realized that she was very persistent whenever she wanted attention. After a long thought, they decided to put her to work in the graphic design department at their visual communication company in São Paulo. Her task was to design signs for the front of the stores of their clients and help their brands in getting the attention they need to attract customers. It was her pure talent which helped her to excel within no time. She did a wonderful job and that’s when she realized her passion to help people get noticed.

Later on, she left her family’s company to work as a marketer and then finally started her career by working on commercials and music videos for big brands on the film industry and TV shows. She completed her graduation in multimedia design and digital film production. In 2002, Sarah started her career as a set decorator transitioning into cinematography, direction, and video editing in 2006. Soon, she started to make her mark in the industry by delivering unique and intriguing work. Due to her talent as an artist who always brings an impeccable combination of emotions and fun into her videos, her fun, intuitive and inspiring work has been recognized worldwide.

Her films have been screened on Film Festivals around the world and she has won awards which include the best cinematography for the web series ‘The Last Fall of Ashes’ and best royal reel for her work as a writer and director on her short film ‘The Passage’.

Apart from having a passion for creating highly creative and striking videos, Sarah also loves photography and her photographs have been featured at the Gibsons Public Art Gallery, Vivo Media Art Center, and other famous galleries in British Columbia.

In 2015, she decided to launch her own video production company Doc ME! Productions to produce video marketing content for brands and legacy videos for families with a goal to bring them together. Her main aim of creating her own company is to help her clients by delivering their messages in a strong, inspiring, and exciting manner.

Sarah is hugely inspired by Wes Anderson’s work and in some ways, she always tries to depict the uniqueness and originality – both of them are quite evident in Wes Anderson’s work. Regardless of the fact that she is a huge fan of Wes Anderson, she is always thriving to set high standards of her own. Sarah’s favorite quote somehow explains everything about her personality and her work.
