Sherril began working in film in the mid 1980’s in South Africa, Zimbabwe and Namibia. In 1990 she relocated to Los Angeles and has worked on over 30 feature films, documentaries and theme park films as an editor, visual effects editor, post production supervisor, production coordinator and writer.
The theme park films she has worked on include 70mm circle vision for Epcot in Disneyworld; and 3D-animation, on projects like It’s Tough to Be a Bug (It’s a Bug’s Life spin-off) for Disney and Pixar, and the soon to be launched Despicable Me 3D Ride for Universal Studios in Orlando.
Sherril’s interests are diverse and she feels fortunate to have been able to explore a multitude of subjects through the medium of film. Many of the projects she’s enjoyed working on focus on social and human consciousness, like the feature film Conversations With God; the documentary You Can Heal Your Life (The Louise Hay Story); and the political documentaries Reconciliation: Mandela’s Miracle and Rush To War.
In 2010 she completed the documentary 333, which is about religious tolerance amongst Islamic Sufis in Mali, West Africa and the relevance this impoverished nation may have for the world at large. Last year she edited the feature film Atlas Shrugged-Part 1, an adaptation of the Ayn Rand novel.
On a trip to Botswana in Southern Africa, Sherril shot and created a short film entitled: Okavango: Journey To My Heart – reflecting her deep love of nature and her passion for preserving the “wild spaces” that are left on our planet.
Making films that transform, inform and inspire embody her mission; and her passion: storytelling.
