Daniel has worked at Docsville Studios for two years. Her recent producer credits include Kevin Macdonald’s Last Song from Kabul which tells the story of girls in Afghanistan whose musical aspirations are threatened by the Taliban takeover and will debut on Paramount+ later this autumn.

Daniel’s current portfolio also includes a range of projects, as yet unannounced, including a documentary series for the BBC and a feature-length documentary about the 1985 bombing of Greenpeace’s Rainbow Warrior ship.

Daniel’s range of projects prior to joining Docsville Studios includes, as producer, Sisters Interrupted, the feature-length documentary about two sisters who have epilepsy.

“We have had a huge amount of interest in our ideas recently and we are delighted to have Sophie on board to help fuel our growth,” Elman, CEO of Docsville Studios, said.

“Sophie is dynamic and extremely talented, a fantastic communicator with a strong production background. She has originated, developed and produced a wealth of programme ideas, with much domestic and international success. She is a great asset to our team and we are lucky to have her head the team.”
