Meet Sabrina Lassegue of Yellow Rain Productions in Burbank

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sabrina Lassegue.

Sabrina, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I just started my production company for indie films this year. We were supposed to launch in June, but with COVID, that is a bit hard. We’ve not even set up our website yet, but our Instagram and business deals are already in motion. We are producing our first feature film this August in NYC, with an amazing cast. I wanted to create a production company that promotes diversity in all areas.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It’s been a bit more challenging with COVID to get everything going, but it’s also made me much more productive. It was hard to get people to take me seriously since I am so young, a woman, and a person of color, but I have a vision and would not quit.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
My business is an indie film and multimedia production company that promotes underrepresented and unknown actors, writers, and filmmakers. It allows them to collaborate in all aspects through us, and we not only help with the filming process but the distribution as well. Especially films that want to go on the film festival track in terms of editing and filming. We are also set to have films released to amazon prime as well. I’m most proud of the diverse collaborative efforts that can be seen and promoted in our storytelling and company as a whole. We tell diverse stories and believe diversity doesn’t just mean add more black people or all of one race. To us that means more black, Hispanic, Jewish, Muslim, Asian, middle eastern, native people and more. That applies to both the scriptwriting side, as well as the people in front of and behind the camera. It’s important to tell these communities stories, and who better to do that than people from these communities. We collaborate with people from every race and religion in order to properly develop characters and their backgrounds and then place them in the everyday roles that these individuals would not normally necessarily get to play, like the girl next door, or the athlete, or scientist, or the rom com love interest.

What were you like growing up?
Growing up, I was very energetic and yet shy at the same time. With kids my age, I was always telling stories and making jokes and loved to talk, but with adults I was always observant and quiet. I loved nothing more than picking up my mom’s camera and beginning to film my little brother and I doing the “Sabrina Show” I would direct him and film vlogs and my dolls. I was always filming my mom and dad as well trying to make a family movie. I really loved to read and write. I was enrolled in dance to get all my energy out and I was also in theatre at 5.
