Sophie Kirk

Sophie Kirk is an aspiring production designer, based in Bristol and Buckinghamshire. Though she came into filmmaking as a writer director, her focus has been drawn to the art department, looking for a more hands on form of storytelling. Her practice focusses on authentic and nuanced realism, centring character and story to produce an emotive and organic stage for the action to play out. As a self admitted hoarder, she sees the beauty in the old, unused and unloved, always finding a way to give new life to the old nick nacks she has tucked away.
