About Sabine Anton

Sabine Anton is the founder of Sabine Anton Productions, a television and video production company based in New York City. Over the past twenty-two years, her proven creativity, thirst for knowledge, and can-do attitude have helped her build a highly successful enterprise in TV journalism, one of the most competitive markets. She is a gifted communicator, with a well-established track record of creating informative and entertaining narratives.

Born in East Berlin in 1965, Sabine remembers a blissful childhood, until her world was turned upside down by being denied college admission and television apprenticeships simply because of her contacts with relatives residing in West Germany. Unable to further her education, she requested permission to emigrate, but was denied. Her subsequent efforts resulted in the imposition of an eighteen-month sentence, for allegedly distributing information detrimental to East Germany’s reputation abroad, which she served in the notorious political prison, Bautzen II. Eventually freed in 1987, as a result of efforts by the United Nations Human Rights Commission, Sabine moved to West Berlin, where she studied design. After working for four years in Asia, she moved to New York City in 1995, and found her way into journalism and television reporting, working for a variety of networks.

Sabine has since broadened her portfolio to include numerous, custom-made films for charities and corporate and promotional websites, and ones reflecting the personal biographies of private clients worldwide. She provides highly personalized services, tailor-made and cost-effective products, by calling on a broad network of experts on a project-by-project basis. Her exceptional managerial skills allow her to effectively direct multiple projects at once.

Sabine’s expertise has been recognized by the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, and she proudly serves as a judge for its International EMMY Awards.

  • My father was a catholic and a pacifist, yet because of his drawing skills he was sent to work as a cartograph for Hitler at the Eastern Front Head Quarter Wolfsschanze. To preserve how he experienced the Second World War, a lot of injustice but also a lot of luck and joy in his life was important to us, his children. We are forever grateful and know that the next generations will be at aw just as much as we were listening to our father.

  • "The video made an incredible impact, not only in our fund-a-grant efforts shortly after, but with our pharmaceutical sponsors that we had at the event. The Merck table at the Charity Event was so moved they want to show the video to their employees at the annual American Society of Clinical Oncology Meeting. Merck with another company called Ariad a few months ago completed one of the largest studies every performed in sarcoma and are now working with the FDA to get in approved. The fact that one of the largest companies in the world is interested in sarcoma and that they are showing your video to all of their staff attending this huge meeting is just phenomenal and adds to our partnership. It is now on the front page of our website and giving people hope and courage to keep on fighting".
