Sophia Carr-Gomm is a filmmaker and director based in East Sussex. She is the director of short films ‘The Wider Sun’ and ‘Nobody’s Darling’ as well as several music videos, all created through her production company Certain Light Films. We talk about Sophia’s background and career as an actor and how despite apparent success she felt compelled to change direction, finding a new purpose in filmmaking and directing. We also speak about her love for the collaborative nature of the filmmaking process, the mental health pressures on working as an actor and the inspirational effect you can have on others if you are working from an impassioned, healthy and enjoyable place in what you create.
