After an early career as a child actor, Sonny wanted to explore other avenues in production and post production. Starting as a Runner, he worked his way up to an Edit Assistant before meeting Colourist, Aidan Farrell, where his Colour Grading journey began.
Sonny spent 8 years as Farrell’s assistant first at Molinare and then Picture Shop, firstly observing and learning on the job, performing basic grades before getting the opportunity to grade pop promos.
His big break came when he graded Craig David: Live at Wembley, which lead to further work grading music content for artists including Madonna, Katy Perry and Oasis. Since then, Sonny has worked on a wide range of projects including documentaries, scripted drama and music concerts. Sonny thrives on projects with unique looks and loves collaborating with DOP’s, directors and producers to visualise and create different looks.
Some of his key projects include Made in Chelsea (2012), Stan Lee’s Lucky Man (2016), Informer (2018), and the BAFTA Award winning, I Am Ruth (2021). Sonny also won an RTS Award in 2011 for Picture Enhancement for his work on TV film, Eric and Ernie.
