Namesake welcomes Sage Bennett to our roster of directors.
Sage Bennett's childhood, in New York City and downtown Chicago, shaped her expansive curiosity, as did her art-obsessed family's road trips, criss crossing the country summer after summer to visit every museum they could find. This early exposure to visually stunning and unfiltered artwork fueled her imagination and her need to create. She began funneling creative energy into short films, music videos and photography from a very young age, developing and honing her individual vision. This expansion continued on through a film course at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Film and Media Arts program at the University of Utah, and well beyond. Sage’s work is emotional, evocative, and taps into universal truths from a female perspective. Sage is passionate about making work that brings people together through this shared human experience.
