Between Lines: Out of Trauma, Blooms a Sense of Healing and Connection
Gateway Film Center
Passion projects tend to be a rite of passage in the creative industry.. but don’t let that fool you – these works are no easy feat. What do you do when you’re not sure where to start? Or perhaps you have an inkling of an idea, but don’t know how to transform it into something more? In this talk, Sarah Beth dives into her own short film process and speaks to the lessons she’s learned along the way. She celebrates the team of talented women who’ve put their full hearts into the project and addresses the ways that you, too, can succeed with your own passion project.
Sarah Beth Morgan is an animation director and illustrator (soon-to-be) based in Cleveland, OH. Her work is a mix of textural musings, graphic explorations, whimsical characters, and a firm yet fluid ability to weave it all together with conceptual storytelling.
At the forefront of her work is a reverence for narrative-first storytelling and a gravitation toward myriad execution. In other words, it’s impossible to pigeonhole Sarah Beth’s style into one neatly definable package and improbable that she’d want you to try. Above all else, she loves the ‘people’ component of storytelling. “Conceptual, narrative storytelling is so important to me,” she says. “My goal is to connect with people – not just to create something visually appealing.”
Originally from the USA, Sarah Beth grew up in Saudi Arabia where she was granted a unique and broad perspective. After studying motion graphics at the Savannah College of Art and Design, she worked in the commercial animation industry in Los Angeles, Portland and Ohio. She is currently represented worldwide by Hornet.
