Director Statement

Still Sophie is the result of quite a few coincidences aligning over the last four years. At the very start, I had always been attracted to non-fiction film and wanted to work on a project with my mentor, Chad. So when 100 Words Film Festival contacted me with the opportunity to make a short documentary, I thought to myself, if anyone was going to tell Sophie's story, it's going to be me and Chad, and we better do it right!

What I hope the film will achieve is to guide a better understanding of what aphasia is and how it aects people. While I hope this film will reach as many people as possible, I hope that it will provide a resource for any and all people aected by stroke to find comfort and hope. For me, this film is about how we must learn to get comfortable abandoning the plans we make for ourselves to forge a new path to happiness.
