A little history...

SOPHORIA was co-founded by Jonathan Symmonds and Romy Tesei in early 2017. They met in 2012 when they worked together on a project in Italy and ever since then have been working on a diverse range of projects to build up a portfolio of high quality work.Jonathan comes from a film background having worked on such productions as AVATAR, Harry Potter, Prince of Persia, Trollhunter, Dark Tide, Nanny McPhee, Where the Wild Things Are and was the Lead Animator on the Game of Thrones.

Romy comes from an Interior Design and Architecture background in 3D visual effects and has over 15 years of experience dealing with high-end clients from all around the world. His amazing skill in final look development kept him in high demand from his clients.

Combining their years of experience, they decided to join forces to focus on the TV and Film industry and created a high-end Visual Effects Studio. The studio was setup in the UK and is now expanding.
