Mixed Reality Artist and Animation Director Sophie Vickers Signs to Somesense

Sophie’s commercial representation at animation studio Somesense presents an opportunity for forward-thinking brands looking to make waves with dynamic content in the mixed reality space.

Primarily a 3D animation director, Sophie brings a wholly creative approach to the technically complex mixed reality space. She creates uncannily beautiful worlds in her films and shares them with us through her artistic use of AR, VR and immersive cinema.

During her time at The Manchester School of Art and, more recently, the Royal College of Art, she explored mixed reality technologies and their applications in animation. She opted to use 3D animation for her graduation film ‘Aeons Ark’, which depicts the destruction of a future world by a momentous flood.

This month she was included as one of thirty finalists in the CIRCA x Dazed Class of 2022 filmmakers, which invited aspiring filmmakers and new media creators to respond to the theme ‘A Future World’, and will have her work shown around the world.

Sophie comments, “I am incredibly excited to be joining the roster of directors at Some Sense and can’t wait to see where it takes me as an animator. I aim to continue pushing the boundaries of reality and create other worldly animations filled with enchantment and wonder. I am also very excited for the wide scope of exciting XR projects we will see in the industry over the coming years, in particular for luxury brands. I wish to be a part of extending reality through animations that bring people together through both wonder and humour".

Founder and director at Somesense, Chris Cray, comments, “Sophie’s work feels electrically new and would be wonderfully paired with luxury brands that want to explore the outer limits of aesthetic experience. As a filmmaker she bewitches us with luxurious alien imagery then makes us laugh with the sheer strangeness of a character performance. Somesense occupies an artistic space between sense and nonsense, to which Sophie will be adding other-worldly sensory experiences.”
