Colorful Masks
Still from The Accidental Death of Joey by Sue
Stylish and strange enough to mark Sarah Louise Wilson and Neal Thibedeau as helmers to watch.

Bio

Sarah Louise Wilson is an artist based in California. She writes, directs, teaches, paints, and acts. Her courage puts her on an edge that cannot be fabricated; rather, it comes as a natural part of who she is and what she stands for. 

 

She co-founded Stella Bella Productions with Mercedes LeAnza in 2006.  There, she penned and starred in her pseudo-autobiographical romantic comedy “Jelly”, starring Natasha Lyonne (Orange Is the New Black) and Hollywood icon Ed McMahon. The script alone attracted name talent and funded the film into release. After screening in competition at several renowned film festivals, the film went on to win four Accolade awards and is represented by Cinetic Media. It has since been released on Netflix, Fancast, Hulu, PBS, and The Sundance Channel. The second film for Stella Bella Productions was The Accidental Death of Joey by Sue. The film premiered at the HBO Latino Film Festival. It stars Mercedes LeAnza, Steve Talley, Lin Shaye, Ashley Fink, Caroline LeDuc, Ignacio Serricchio, Vanessa Libertad Garcia, and Merrill Davis.

 

Throughout her career, Sarah taught, wrote and directed short films, plays, music videos, documentaries— Anything she could get her hand on. In early 2016, when Sarah was living in Almaty, Kazakhstan, she shot“No Exit”, a feature film, shot entirely on location. The movie went on to win multiple awards.

 

She has been featured in Up the Staircase Quarterly, Isotrope - Art, Changing Wxman Collective, Peatsmoke Journal, Variant Literature, Drunk Monkeys, The Huffington Post, The Los Angeles Times, Indiewire, Cosmopolitan, Variety, Diversions LA, Tengri News, Esquire, and The Bookends Review, and Decamp Journal.

 

Her plays have been performed at The Walt Disney REDCAT theatre, California Institute of the Arts, and Artishok Theatre in Almaty, Kazakhstan.
