Sophie’s three big passions in life are writing, animation and doughnuts, and to her delight she’s combined the first two and turned them into a career (though she’s still working on getting doughnuts in there somewhere…) After graduating with a distinction in MA Creative Writing from Cardiff University, she found her first creative home at Cloth Cat Animation. Her experience in developing new animation projects and writing pilot scripts led to a position on the writing team for animation series Luo Bao Bei¸ an exciting international co-production with China. Having gotten her first taste of professional scriptwriting, Sophie is hungry for more… (pass the doughnuts, please!)
