Represented by:

Humphrey Elles-Hill
Sophie was selected for the Uncertain Kingdom film fund with SWAN – a film which she co-wrote, produced by Screen Stars of Tomorrow and BIFA-breakthrough nominees Helen Simmons and Stephanie Aspin, and starring Mark Addy and Sally Bretton. SWAN is distributed by Verve Pictures and is available on Amazon Prime Video, Curzon Home Cinema, BFI Player and Apple TV+. Her NFTS graduation coming of age short UNEATABLE stars Letty Thomas and was nominated for the Grand Prix at Encounters, whilst her previous shorts have been nominated for awards at BAFTA and Oscar-qualifying festivals internationally. She’s recently finished up on period short FAREWELL SHE GOES (written by 2020 Bafta Rocliffe selected writer Claire Tailyour) as part of a campaign for women’s reproductive rights. She’s also just been selected to make one of a series of comedy shorts produced by Shot of Tea, and is developing a variety of longform projects.
Sophie also directs music videos, commercials and content for brands and broadcasters globally, with clients including Netflix, Warner Music and Mulberry.
