Sarah Nerboso ('12, Film)

Sarah Nerboso


Sarah Nerboso is a born and bred New Yorker. After studying East Asian History at the University of Chicago, Sarah returned to New York to work in theater. She started at Richard Foreman's Ontological-Hysteric Theater and continued down the rabbit hole of experimental theater as stage manager, light designer and director at various venues such as PS 122, La Mama and 3LD.

Sarah began applying her storytelling skills to the screen when she began studying film at Columbia. There she wrote, directed and produced short films such as Braaains! and Duct Tape Twins. Focusing on screenwriting, she also wrote several feature and pilot scripts. Recently, she interned for the Levinson-Fontana Company, where she got first-hand experience in television production for the new show Copper. At Columbia, she received the Mita Mallick and Piyush Phadke Fellowship (for students interested in women's issues), several TAships and was a Dean's Fellow.

Sarah received her MFA in Film from Columbia University in Spring 2012. She is preparing a move to Los Angeles.
