Director Biography - Sebastian Podesta

I love everything about video. Watching movies, capturing moments, editing it all together and telling a story. After graduating from NYU, I got my professional start working in sports media. I made a feature-length sports documentary in 2012, Going Pro: American Soccer, about a semi-pro soccer team from Brooklyn, New York. I then worked for U.S. Soccer where I traveled the world creating video content for the Men's and Women's National Teams. Next up, NBC Sports, where you'll still often find me editing broadcast promos for the NFL (Sunday Night Football), NHL and Premier League. The birth of my son, Jamie, and the joy of watching him grown up has inspired me to capture stories outside of the sports world. Love, Lulu is my first documentary short with this new perspective.
