Sarah Hesterman

Phase 4 Media LLC Founder & Executive Producer Media Brooklyn, NY
About Sarah
I'm a film and video producer of documentary films, advertising and branded content and Brooklyn mom to Clementine (4) and Sebastian (1). I am the founder of Phase Four: Media with a Mission, a production company with a vision of using the powerful tool of media as a force for social change, specializing in producing documentary-style content for foundations, non-profits, social causes and sustainable, mission-driven brands. I also freelance, producing commercials and content for big brands and ad agencies. My #1 passion is food - both as an issue around which much of my work revolves (healthy food access, sustainable agriculture, farming, urban farming, good-food entrepreneurs, etc.) and as a personal interest and source of pleasure (chefs, restaurants, food tourism, cooking, entertaining, eating), and happen to be married to a chef! I grew up in Michigan, came to New York over 20 years ago to go to film school at NYU Tisch and never left!

What special skill, talent or gift would you like to give back to the community?

Using documentary storytelling techniques to promote good brands and causes,
and I'm a producer so I'm great at planning and getting sh*t done!

What is your biggest business challenge right now?

Marketing & Social Media

What is one thing that would be game-changing for your business right now?

One or two clients that have significant ongoing project-based work to allow me to transition to 100% project-based (rather than supplementing with day-rate freelance work).

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

Since becoming a mom, I have found such a source of love, support and community amongst groups of other mothers and I love that Heymama is a community of like-minded creative and entrepreneurial mothers like me. I think your model is brilliant and would love to become more involved.
