On paper Sara and Bobby Sheehan are a mismatch.

Sara grew up in Westchester, New York, attended Bedales School in Hampshire, England and graduated from Wellesley College. Bobby on the other hand, had an unconventional upbringing that was nomadic and slightly feral: moving from the lower Eastside of NYC to Brooklyn then back to the lower Eastside of NYC. Bobby had a front row seat and was an active participant to the explosive art scene of the 1980’s. Bobby had to hustle his way into New York University Tisch School of the Arts with scholarships and grants. Sara had started a successful career first in advertising and then as a journalist with TV appearances on Oprah and the Today Show and Bobby was photographing punk rockers, creating art and fashion videos that caught the eye of Andy Warhol. Warhol and Sheehan began a collaboration, which tragically ended when Warhol died just months before their film was to commence filming.

The fashion industry brought them together when Sara had an assignment to interview a filmmaker directing “fashion videos.” Sara went to Bobby’s studio and Bobby told his assistant that he would only be interviewed over dinner: the couple have been together ever since. Collectively, they have produced well over a hundred hours of content in the form of online and conventional TV series, documentaries, and narrative films. Bobby has directed and lensed over 300 commercials…and they have produced three talented children.

Their secret to a successful partnership relies on a few simple principles: treat every project as if it was the very first and most important one; never become creatively complacent; always stay culturally relevant by immersing yourself in what you love; support one another during difficult times; always over-deliver to clients and consistently give back by producing passion projects that have positive impacts.

A mismatch made in heaven.
