Sarey Martin Concepcion

Sarey spent a decade in the world of heavy metal and horror as part of Rob Zombie’s management team. She then started a new journey, getting a master’s degree in theology and developing her own film projects. Her first directed short film FATHER MARY (2020) about a priest confronting an abusive figure from her past, engages some of her favorite themes: spiritual crisis, female identity, and human relationships. While working in management, she helped produce 5 Rob Zombie feature films and worked on over 20 album releases of artists such as Booker T. Jones, Megadeth, and Devo. Her work since then has included being a senior programmer for the Vidlings & Tapeheads Film Fest (Detroit), producing shorts like the award-winning TORTOISE (2018), self-publishing a poetry collection, developing a series called HOMESCHOOLED (a semi-finalist in Sundance’s New Voices Lab), and becoming a Disney Launchpad finalist (2022). She currently works as the director of communication for a small nonprofit (in the academic sector, focused on grant writing) and writes/produces film projects on a freelance basis. More at
