Sophia has just finished studying at Columbia College Chicago with a BA in Television focused in Directing and Writing. She currently lives in Los Angeles and is working as an executive assistant for Threshold Entertainment, with Larry Kasanoff.

Recently, she just ended her internship at Bradley Cooper and Todd Phillips’ production company, Joint Effort, as a development intern. There, she focused on script coverage while also answering phones, helping to maintain the office, and run occasional errands.

Spring Semester 20I8 Sophia was selected to be one of the directors for Columbia College’s Live FreqOut Comedy Sketch Show. With this production she directed two live sketches (“Meatball” & “CGI”) as well as two other digital shorts (“History” & “CGI - Single Camera”) which were all multi-camera live studio directing. Sophia also was the assistant director to two other live sketches while also directing the opening credits in a single shot digital short.

Summer 2018 Sophia worked with the non for profit Green Star Movement as their Video Production Intern in charge of filming events and projects and creating promotional videos as well as social media. (Promo videos can be found at https://www.sgilberto.com/)

Spring 2017 Sophia was fortunate enough to work with the BBC on several of their smaller projects including ‘Blue Peter’ working as a grip/production assistant. In the Fall of 2017 Sophia also worked with the 2017 Chicago International Film Festival as their Volunteer Coordinator responsible for scheduling, training and recruiting over 150 volunteers during the festival season. Through this experience she was able to gain managerial skills and time management.
