Sadra Tehrani is an Iranian-born Set and Production Designer based in New York City. His past design and film work has been featured in the New York Times, Broadway World, TimeOut NY and awarded in various national and international festivals. He’s intrigued by stories that explore concepts of belonging and alienation, and characters who are inconspicuous outliers. With a Masters in Architecture from Penn State University, he deeply appreciates a well thought-out construction detail. Space and Sound are the main drivers in his approach to design, and his ultimate joy is experiencing the synergy between a film’s production design and its score.
Throughout his studies at NYU, Sadra has increasingly become obsessed with sketching and the presence of one’s “handwriting” in their artwork. When away from the designing board, Sadra enjoys riding his bike on and off trail, drawing strangers on the New York subway, and dj mixing his favorite dance hits.
