Hello! I’m Sophie, a maker of things based in the wonderful city of Bristol.
I make stop-motion animations using paper. My most recent paper film, Writing in the Shadows, is about Prisoner publishing in Mexico and can be found on BBC iPlayer as part of the series Animated Thinking, produced by Calling the Shots. I have made another paper film called Untamed Truths, an adult animal alphabet screened on Channel 4 as a part of the Random Acts Series.
In the summer of 2018 I joined anthropologist Camilla Morelli to form part of the AMAZONIMATIONS team. This was funded by the British Academy to make animations with Matses people living in the Amazon rainforest. This is an ongoing project using animation as a platform for indigenous people to tell their stories.
In Autumn 2021 we are working in Newquay with young people on a project called Waves of Change. This project collaborates with young people, anthropology, animation and climate science.
As an editor I have worked on corporate film, adverts, animated shorts and short films.
I also like to make books of many shapes and sizes and writing travel cartoons about adventures that I embark upon. Most of these are available in my Etsy shop.
