Producer & Director
Recently, a high school classmate of Sarah Megyesy’s said to her, “I never thought the girl who wore basketball sweatpants and Adidas sandals to school would grow up to create documentaries”. It truly was a 180 flip from her jock-like character in high school to the filmmaking student she became at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. Since deciding filmmaking was her path a little over a decade ago she has never strayed; never once looked back dreaming on what her life could have been as a WNBA all star. Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, Sarah is now stationed in Denver, CO working as a full time filmmaker and videographer. The Right to Rest is Sarah’s first feature-length film sparking the blaze down the trail of a long career as a documentary filmmaker. Her next project, currently in pre-production, is a film about industrial hemp and farming in Eastern Colorado.
