We had the good fortune of connecting with Sara Boutine and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Sara, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Growing up, risks were often hasty and reactive. As I grounded down, risks became calculated and action driven.

Getting into arts, was a risk. Starting my life over in LA, was a risk. Launching a yoga business, was a risk.
Risks have been vital for my growth and an important push into life changing choices.

This year, I took a risk directing a short film; taking old unused footage, adding new footage, creating an experimental narrative that is super exciting to tell.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’m so humbly excited for our latest adventure. Last year was challenging on multiple levels; adapting my yoga business, yogibandits, to find ways to benefit our community best. Keeping creative and inspired while the acting world adapted. There was a need to talk, create and express, I got the team together to create our mini film “NIGHT SHIFT”. The idea was to keep creating, especially when things seem dim. I’m so proud of everyone involved. We are so excited to release it.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Things you may want to do when you visit: Drive down Sunset blvd.
Hike the Santa Monica Mountains.
Book a massage at THE NOW.
Visit The Huntington Library
Lebanese food at Hayat’s Kitchen
Spend the day in Malibu
Roller Skate in Venice
Vegan cheesecakes at SunCafe Organic Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My recent risk, the film “NIGHT SHIFT” is almost completed; I deeply thank my team. Elliot Tee & Debora Giannone for their superb performance.
Micho Solo for his incredible eye and unique cinematography.
The biggest shout out goes to Mina Abrahim for his patience, professionalism and exceptional talent, which are beautifully showcased, in our latest endeavor.
