Hiyeee! I’m Sarah Ramos.
Most people know me for playing Haddie Braverman on Parenthood, or for other acting roles. If that’s all you know, you’re in for a rude awakening: I am also a filmmaker!
As an actress, I've often felt like I needed to be what other people wanted to succeed. You know - an Effortless, Well-Adjusted Cool Girl? I’m more neurotic and intense. It’s fun!
Like, when I was 9, my family paid to go on a Mary-Kate & Ashley cruise. Next, I pretty much became an autograph hound, obsessively collecting photos with my favorite celebrities. I wrote a rom-com for Reese Witherspoon to star in, which no one read for over 10 years. Then I tried really hard to pretend none of this happened so I could be Cool & Successful™. It didn’t really work.
Writing and directing films about how I actually see the world has been transformative and freeing. I’ve learned that I don’t have to pretend to be someone else to succeed. Instead, I can embrace the ambition and obsession I spent my formative years trying to hide.
Because I want to share my work with you, I’m putting my short films, webseries, and funky experimental art all in one place, on this website.
For YOU! For me. For us.
