Post Production Team for “What’s Love Got To Do With It” film by Sofia Wellman
Creator, Director, Producer
Sofia has always had a fascination with people, and the film industry became a natural progression, where she creates in the genre of documentary film. Inherently introspective, she explores topics people would prefer to avoid or gloss over. Sofia is not afraid to lead others where most people are afraid to go for the purpose of healing; by facing the underbelly of sorrow, she has cultivated the material from which she draws on to touch the lives of so many. She handled such depth of feeling with creative outlets, such as writing poetry at sixteen years old. Being both creative and detailed oriented enables her to interlace the varied aspects of filmmaking. Whether Sofia is interviewing her subject, arranging the way the film topic needs to flow, or pulling together a group of talented individuals to carry out her vision, she seems to be in the moment but is always two steps ahead. Sofia passionately gives her all on any endeavors she partakes in. She currently resides in Atlanta, and when not working on a film, Sofia is writing or speaking. For a diversion, she does agility with her dogs and enjoys a good workout in the gym.

As a kid, Whitney obsessively watched movies or pretended she was in one. Naturally, filmmaking became her medium. Shaping character and story to make you laugh when maybe you should be crying, or having the control to show a person in their most raw and vulnerable state, is intoxicating. So, storytelling became a way of life; and Whitney found her place as an editor. When she isn’t tucked away in the edit suite, Whitney is wandering the city streets, or hanging out at the coffee shop eating pastries and writing screenplays.
