Sara Taigher

Born in Rome in 1980, works as a director and motion designer. Her work is deeply inspired by contrasts between nature and technology

I started producing videos and motion graphics during my techno and electronic “era” as a VJ in 2005 when I moved to London and graduated in Graphic and Media Design at London College of Communication.

That’s when I set up my first video-sculpture “Humanity Lost” and won my first award at Dams Film Festival back home. 

I’ve always wanted to do something that was not only in a commercial direction, firstly I tried with installations, then with some experimental videos here and there, then with music videos like Solar life raft (Dj Rupture and Matt Shadetek) and Valse de meduse (Le Cardamomò).

Anyway, after graduating in UK and coming back to Rome, I started directing tv, cinema and web commercials hired as a motion director by the production company Filmmaster. There I learned many thing especially how to deal with clients and how to respect tight deadlines without getting a panic attack.

In 2012 I founded my production company So What Pictures with Ippolito Simion and Lorenzo Giordano where I currently work as a motion director and motiongrapher.

Currently I’m working on my first animated short film Black, which I’ve been producing for the last 2 years.
