Sophie Gateau studied architecture and art history before focusing on graphic design and film direction
at the Parisian School Ecole des Arts Décoratifs. Sophie began her career in the French fashion industry, after being recruited
by designers to create stunning live action and design-driven runway films. Her sense of design and art direction can be directly
traced to her early experiences in fashion and architecture. As a graphic artist, Sophie was recruited to work on top-tier feature films like The Matrix Reloaded, The Matrix Revolutions, Alexander the Great, and Wong Kar-Wai`s 2046. As a commercial and music video director, Sophie effortlessly mixes live action, animation and visual effects. Among her recent projects are spots for LG, Expedia, Nike und Kodak.
