After graduating from Yale University, studying sculpture and photography in Italy, and working as a legislative aide for a NJ state senator, Lisanne Sartor moved to Los Angeles to become a writer/director but was waylaid when she was admitted to the DGA Assistant Director Training Program. After seven years, she left ADing to get an MFA in Screenwriting from UCLA, where she won numerous screenwriting awards. Her original screenplay, “Cleaverville,” was produced by Alexander/Enright Productions and aired on Lifetime Television. She’s written an MOW for the DeAngelis Group in Italy, had a script optioned by Hearst Entertainment, and developed projects with Roth-Arnold Productions, among other companies. She wrote and directed the short film SIX LETTER WORD via the AFI Directing Workshop for Women. “Six Letter Word” has screened at over forty-five film festivals across the USA, including the Telluride Film Festival and the American Pavilion at Cannes (full list: www.sixletterword.org). She’s currently prepping her next short, PRICK, and has written a feature version of SIX LETTER WORD which she will direct. She lives with her husband, two unique boys, a goofy St. Bernard/Boxer in Los Angeles, where she teaches screenwriting at the UCLA School of Theater Film and TV Professional Program.
