Sacha and Stacey are long term collaborators, having met at Art School, and have worked together since then. Fingers Crossed is their first film. Their shared sense of black humour, satire and visual style is what gives them a distinctive voice.
SACHA TEULON | DIRECTOR
Sacha Teulon has always been a visual artist, with a career that started with a degree at Central St Martins during the purple patch of the early nineties. From there she went on to direct animation for Sesame Street, then switched to photography, shooting for Vogue, The Face, Tank, Levis, PlayStation, O2. Not content with submitting to other magazines,
Sacha founded Marmalade Magazine, a creative hotbed of established and breakthrough talent. Described by The Guardian as ‘championing new trends and talent in the fields of film, music, art and fashion’. Sacha was awarded a D&AD for Art Direction of the magazine, the first magazine to win this coveted award for 30 years. A short hiatus for motherhood and Sacha has returned to her love of film, starting with the highly awarded and darkly funny and scarily prophetic Finger’s Crossed.
Sacha brings her unique flair for the visual in her direction but also an intellectual sensitivity that draws humanity from the performances that are at the very heart of the story.
She is currently developing Marinade with Stacey Williams.
