Direct Contact

Sandy Parker is an Italian-American screenwriter/director based in New Orleans. After studying theatre and German at Indiana University, she completed the rigorous two-year photography program at Atlanta's Portfolio Center (now Miami Ad School @ Portfolio Center), followed by over twenty years working with world-class talent as a script supervisor in television and film. As a writer, she infuses her quirky sense of humor into coming-of-age stories about people of all ages as they surmount challenges in unexpected ways.

Her dark comedy short "Creatures of God" won Best Comedy at the Imagine This Women's International Film Festival in Brooklyn, New York. The New Orleans-based non-profit The Cool Cooperative produced Sandy's sci-fi short film "Alienated" after selecting her script as their 2018 contest winner. The completed film has screened in six countries and received awards for Best International Sci-Fi Short at the New Forest Film Festival in Brockenhurst, England and Best Super Short Sci Fi at the Berlin Flash Film Festival. Sandy has three feature-length scripts in development.

Sandy is a member of the Alliance of Women Directors, IATSE Local 161, and served for over four years on the board of Women in Film & Television - Louisiana. She is conversationally fluent in German, and enjoys dragging home treasures from other people's trash heaps.
