Multitalented Wellington-based WIFT member Sarah Hunter has been busy! Her music video, directed for Rhombus’ new tune Treat You So Right, was released on 13 May, ready for an album launch on 27 May. Sarah also produced and directed two concert feature films for Kiwi band Fat Freddy’s Drop - Wairunga and Lock-In, both made sans audiences and on Freddy’s YouTube channel. She also has another visual collab with Dallas Tamaira called Kaikoura coming up for release; Sarah previously directed and produced Dallas' No Flowers music video in 2020. AND Sarah was also second camera on the Kaikoura video and a camera operator on Freddy’s Wairunga.
In between doing all that, Sarah designed a collaborative art installation ‘EMOH’ (the word 'home' in reverse) exploring the environment on the Pōrangahau coast. The immersive exhibit, part of Wild Creations (a joint initiative between DOC and Creative New Zealand), is a series of light boxes featuring Sarah’s photography from the area, hand-folded by origami artist Juliet Black (Blacklight), and environmental recordings by sound artist Dr Thomas Voyce of Rhombus.
Sarah is the boss of Transmit, an ideas and content generator company specialising in video storytelling and content.
