Sophie Black has been making films for over a decade now - a journey which started when her parents gave her a Hi-8 tape camcorder for her 15th birthday.
She graduated from the University of Creative Arts in 2010 with a BA in Film Production. During her time studying there, she received her first commissioned work as a director on a road safety advert for Surrey County Council.
Since graduating, Sophie has directed six short films and produced two, as well as having created a variety of promotional films and music videos. She's run her own production company, Triskelle Pictures Ltd. since 2008, and in 2014 she also found work at successful corporate video production agency, Dynomite Productions Ltd, where she’s now their head of post- production.
Sophie has a highly artistic and creative eye. She's created costumes and designed sets for theatre and film since her teens, and has worked in the art department on numerous short and feature films. She has been interviewed for various online magazines and television shows, including BBC East Midlands Today. As a result of one of these BBC interviews, in 2013, the reporter publicly described her as 'Belper's answer to Baz Luhrmann.'
She won the MMBF Rising Star Award in 2017, and was recently announced as a participant of this year’s prestigious BFI x BAFTA Crew.
