ABOUT ME

 

 

WESTERN AUSTRALIAN BASED SCREEN DIRECTOR & PRODUCER

Sophia Armstrong was born and raised in a small country town, nestled in the hills of the South West of WA. This is where her love and interest for film grew and where she continues to source her inspiration. Sophia made the big move to the city in 2016 to complete her Bachelor of Screen Arts at Curtin University. After completing her degree, she wanted to continue to further her experience and knowledge, and was accepted into WA Screen Academy in 2019, specializing in directing and producing where she completed her Masters of Screen. She hopes to make films now, and in the future, that will inspire and change those who watch her work.
