Creative Lives — Freelance producer and script reader Sarah Granville on going from full-time into the unknown

Posted 25 July 2017 Interview by Indi Davies

Starting out as a production assistant, Sarah Granville spent over eight years climbing the ranks across various roles at Channel 4. Last year she branched out into the world of freelancing, curious to find out “how different companies do it”. As a producer specialising in short-form video content, she has since worked with MTV, Sky Creative and helped Vice launch their own channel, Viceland.
