Movie BIOS!


Born in Kenosha, Wisconsin to British parents, Sarah Deakins spent the first year of her life in Chicago, until her parents decided to move to Canada. A graduate of the University of Victoria theater program, Ms. Deakins has extensive stage and screen credits; she has also written and produced several plays and films, taking the helm most recently as director of her newest piece, "Greece", produced by Brightlight Pictures.

The first short film she penned and starred in, "Late", went to Cannes with Telefilm Canada as part of a successful festival run, and "Greece", has just begun the festival circuit. A writer for hire, Ms. Deakins has "script doctored" several features in LA and has four spec scripts of her own that continue to garner her work with page one rewrites. She is currently in development on her own first feature film, "Home Free". Ms. Deakins makes her home in three main cities, splitting the year between LA, Toronto, and Vancouver.
