Sally also runs a career in writing and directing alongside her acting work, and has successfully managed to do both in Australia and the UK.
She began her work behind the camera as a producer at the first community television station in Victoria, MPTV (Mornington Peninsula Television), producing (and presenting) a weekly magazine lifestyle show for teenagers, as a teen herself, before moving onto professional work as a boom swinger & makeup assistant among other varied roles in film and television. Her work as backstage crew in theatre began in the Lighting department on follow spot, where she could be found when not on stage herself for nearly three years.
In the mid-1990’s, Sally left for the UK to audition for drama school and instead ended up working at the BBC for a few years in production and research roles. Eventually she accepted a place at The Actors’ Institute, where she graduated with a Degree in Drama, then promptly returned to the BBC for just over a year before returning to Australia.
It was during her last stint at the BBC that Sally first began writing for the stage and screen, as well as producing and directing her own work – usually also appearing as an actor. She has to date written, directed and/or produced a collection of short films, short features, plays, TV pilots, short documentaries, a feature length documentary and now two web series.
Sally has also worked as the General Manager of Melbourne WebFest (one of the original five web fests globally and the largest web fest in the Southern Hemisphere) and was the Founder and Festival Director of Shorts Relief: Flicks For The Fires founded in 2020 – a charity short film and web fest initially founded to raise money for Bushfire relief.
