About Sasha Andrews

Sasha Andrews

Sasha is a filmmaker with a passion for character-driven factual stories, particularly of sub-cultures that comment on universal human issues in unexpected ways. As a documentary practitioner she is conscious of the tensions involved in making a film of real peoples lives: The choices of what and how to film and the influence the filmmaker can have on events. These are increasingly becoming a part of the films themselves.

Sasha’s last two shorts (The Pair & Boat Dreams), screened at numerous international festivals including Uppsala International Short Film Festival, where thanks to a British Council Travel Grant she was able to attend the screenings and Q&A sessions in 2010.

Sasha is currently editing a longer (60mins), creative observational documentary on the alliance of two diverse groups opposing a land grab. Whilst working on this she is exploring the potential for an interactive creative documentary with actors. Both projects will gain valuable insights and a reality check from the 1:1 mentoring sessions, meetings with funders and the peer community feedback of Filmwork’s participants as we explore, contribute to and trouble shoot each others ideas.  All activities which will hopefully facilitate the development of long-term collaborations.

Mood video

Hi, I’m concentrating on just one project at the moment – the mostly shot doc; logline: ‘Being arrested can mean losing everything, but what if you have nothing to lose?’ I hope it’s going to be a mix of 5 Broken Camera’s meets All White in Barking ie a documentary about a territorial dispute through the thoughts and actions of its characters I’m aiming it at an audience of people who have never met or … Continue reading

Fab start to FilmWorks

The first FilmWorks Masterclass was great – I now have “make sure every scene pushes the story forward” on my wall to help me resist those shots which I love but aren’t going anywhere.  Yeah, ideally I wouldn’t be editing my own work, but needs must and FilmWorks mentors and fellow filmmakers will help me develop the strongest story structure and give feedback on the sequences as I go along. The Workshop was fascinating; hearing … Continue reading
