Savannah Abrishamchian

also known as Sav, Savab, Savage, and Nana

Savannah Abrishamchian is a Persian-Armenian American writer/photographer based in LA specializing in poetry, flash fiction, and screenwriting. Surrounded by a musical family, she spent most of her childhood dancing and singing aside from her usual arts & crafts. She earned a B.A. in English from University of San Diego where she was dedicated to flash fiction, poetry, photography, and literary magazine production.

Post-college, Savannah blossomed as Spotify's Jr. Writer for the ¡Viva Latino! Video Playlist writing short-docu style content for artists such as Ricky Martin and Demi Lovato. Soon after, she landed in CAA's TV Scripted department under Tony Etz and later served as the right hand to Jenni Konner where she grew in Development. Savannah has since then been investing and spearheading her own screenwriting projects with aspirations to produce and direct, moonlighting as her own creative entity aside from her day-to-day profession as a Development Coordinator at Jordan Peele's Monkeypaw Productions.

Savannah's pieces Alalia and Lolll Same. can be seen in San Francisco's The Racket. She adapted her poem Alalia into a short film, which she also directed during the pandemic in 2021. The piece won awards in Outstanding Achievement First Time Director Female and Outstanding Achievement Best Women Short for the Indie Short Fest, Los Angeles International Film Festival's 4th qualifying season for 2022, in addition to gaining a Certificate of Achievement as an Annual Finalist. The film was also nominated for Best Performance Piece / Experimental for the 2022 Micheaux Film Festival, and more.

Savannah is managed by Nadya Panfilov, Writ Large.
