After a decade as a professional dancer, championship ballroom competitor and
choreographer, Sie dove into filmmaking in 2006, when she created, directed and
produced her first official music video, "Here It Goes Again," with her
brother's band, OK Go. After rehearsing on treadmills for 10 days at her dance
studio in Orlando, Florida, Sie shot the video in a single uncut take, using a
friend's borrowed camera.
That treadmill video earned Sie and the band a Grammy Award for best
short-form music video, and since then, her other groundbreaking concepts and
direction with the rock band OK Go have produced some of the most universally
heralded music videos of all time.
Her most recent OK Go collaboration, "Upside Down & Inside Out," was shot
entirely in weightlessness aboard a plane that simulates zero gravity. It racked
up more than 47 million hits in its first week online and has been praised by
critics and fans alike as a truly groundbreaking work of filmmaking.
Success as a music video director led to commercial work for Sie. She's shot ads
for brands such as Levi's, HÃ¤agen-Dazs, Sony, Old Navy, Dole, Carl's Jr.,
Hunt's, Big Lots! and more.
Her work has been honored and awarded by Smithsonian magazine, Creativity
magazine, the Cannes advertising festival and Saatchi & Saatchi's New Directors'
Showcase, among others.
She also writes and creates her own short films and concept videos. Her short
films, Not Alone and Being Dennis, have enjoyed success on the festival circuit,
screening at BAM, Henson's Puppets on Film, Atlanta Film Festival, L.A.
Art-House Film Festival, the NYC Independent Film Festival and the LA Puppet
Festival. Her newest short film, The Big Breakup, deals with America's
dysfunctional relationship with guns.
Sie is also a recurring creative collaborator and choreographer for the
inventive, world-renowned dance company Pilobolus.
Her first feature film, Step Up All In, was filmed in native 3D and hit
theaters around the globe in 2014, grossing more than $90 million worldwide.
According to the Los Angeles Times, "Sie packs in her exuberantly choreographed
and staged dance scenes as tightly as beads on a necklace," and The New York
Times says her film "exudes the infectiousness of an old-fashioned movie
