Sophia & Laura

Sophia Dewberry

MD / Executive Producer

Sophia’s background in marketing and retail evolved with her making a dynamic career move into the film industry in 1996. She has extensive experience working as a director/producer on local and service commercials, documentaries, music videos and series.

While still working in film, Sophia’s entrepreneurial drive prompted her to co-found a health company in 2009, of which she later became the sole owner. The company swiftly established a client base of over 290 stores, exporting internationally, and even patenting a product.

Sophia was the Executive Producer for a German-owned production company and another company in South Africa. A hands-on EP, Sophia has a firm grip on the mechanisms of the service industry and its delivery expectations.

Sophia is renowned for her professionalism, creativity, enthusiasm, humour and warmth.  She loves people and attributes her vivacious personality to her tropical Durban roots and Mauritian family heritage. She possesses a remarkable capacity to enchant the ordinary with a creative vision and easily translates your wishes into action. Let’s make magic.

Laura Sampson

Partner / Producer

Laura’s been juggling on a high frequency since the early 90’s when she was running a busy café in London’s Sloane Square. The YK2 bug hit and Laura headed back to her roots in South Africa.

What began with answering phones, Laura’s journey up the production ladder has seen her working at some of the most established SA production companies.

After spending several years in the service industry, Laura went onto working with some of South Africa’s top directors. Her accolades include producing award-winning work at Cannes Lions, D&AD, The One Show and locally, The Loerie Awards. She’s been ranked as one of the top 20 South African Producers in the 2019 Official Loeries Rankings.

She says “as a producer, our creativity is equally important as the onus is on us to make the money work!”

Laura loves a good challenge and making the impossible possible. She’s even been known to pull a rabbit out of a hat.
