Sarah Watt was an award-winning filmmaker who worked as a writer, director and producer of animation for fifteen years. Sarah's acclaimed animation Small Treasures (1995) brought widespread international attention, winning, amongst many awards, the Baby Lion for Best Short Film at the Venice Film Festival that year. Local Dive and Living with Happiness followed, both of which screened widely at festivals and theatrically, winning many international and Australian awards. Sarah's hand-painted animated films are distinguished by her comic exploration of personal states, set against lush Australian landscapes, fully using her previous career as a painter and printmaker. Look Both Ways was Sarah's debut feature film. Unlike the short films, it is live action, interspersed with animated sequences. A critical and commercial success in Australia, it has also won many awards and has screened widely internationally. It is currently used as a text on the VCE English list. She was the author of the children's picture book CLEM ALWAYS COULD and, with her husband William McInnes, WORSE THINGS HAPPEN AT SEA.
