As one of the leading directors in the world of music video, Sophie Muller has spent over 20-years crafting some of the most seminal videos of the modern music era.
After graduating from St Martins School of Art, Sophie pursued a master’s degree in Film and Television at the Royal College of Art before honing her skills as a music video director – establishing long-running working relationships with Gwen Stefani, Annie Lennox, No Doubt, Sade, Garbage, and The Kills.
Renowned for her live work, in 2016 Sophie directed the first ever live music video for TV broadcast. The video for Gwen Stefani’s ‘Make Me Like You’ was filmed live on-air during the 2016 Grammy Awards.

Also in 2016, Sophie visually directed the Dixie Chicks MMXVI tour. Other notable live works include creative direction for Sade’s 2011 critically and commercially acclaimed tour, and tour visuals for Gwen Stefani, No Doubt, the Dixie Chicks, and Garbage.
A kaleidoscopic array of artists have benefitted from Sophie’s visionary approach, including Rihanna, Beck, Weezer, Jeff Buckley, The Cure, The Stone Roses, Blur, Garbage, Supergrass, PJ Harvey, Coldplay, Lily Allen, Radiohead, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Dolly Parton, Alicia Keys, The Strokes, Shakira, Bjork, Kings of Leon, and Beyoncé. Commercial clients have included Reebok, MTV, L’Oréal, Gillette, and Venus, to name but a few.
Sophie’s work has won numerous awards including a Grammy, several MTV Awards, a Brit Award, and numerous UKMVA, MVPA, and Music Week awards. Sophie has also won both the MVPA Director of the Year and the CADS Director of the Year.
