Michaela Sabo

Michaela studied theater dramaturgy at VŠMU (Theatre and Music Academy in Bratislava, Slovakia) and at DAMU (Theatre Academy in Prague, Czech Republic). She has a Master degree in Multimedia Communications at UTB Zlín (Czech Republic). Michaela also studied script writing at UCLA and at Serial Eyes. She was part of the EPI European TV Drama Series Lab in 2013. During Serial Eyes Michaela found her network in Berlin and is currently living there. Michaela is able to read and write in Slovak, Czech and English languages and also speaks German.

Apart from her own work as a freelance writer, creative producer and development executive (five TV series already aired, several feature and TV series projects in different stages of development or production) Michaela is also working as a story development trainer (Sarajevo Film Festival, Serial Eyes – DFFB, Series Mania – Writers Campus, Midpoint Institute, Karlovy Vary IFF, Clermont-Ferrand Short Film Festival, Tallinn Black Nights, Torino Lab, Eureka Series …etc).

Michaela has a very strong voice in comedy (30 hours of comedy series and one comedy feature in her portfolio), but lately she is exploring also other genres, such as adventurous thriller. She has a rule to work only on projects she feels passionate about.

Michaela develops scripts in English.
