Sarah's mission is to create socially conscious media to promote compassion and introspection through different perspectives. She's best known for cultivating a certain style of filmmaking- what she likes to call 'holistic video production.' This means that the audience experiences the media's theme not just visually, but also in other dimensions, such as audibly. For example, her viral music video "Red Dress," is a holistic portrayal of judgment. The vocals being out of place mirror the character being out of place as she is met with exclusion from church insiders, judging her in the pews for being an outsider. Moreover, the out-of-place vocals incite the real-world audience to judge, just like the church insiders. Hence, the real-world audience is brought into the church pews of judgment, partaking in the theme, creating a holistic video experience.
