Nick Williams

Director / Owner

Nick set up Feral in 2014 after working for several years as a Producer in one of the largest animation studios in Manchester. Armed with a laptop and a desk in his front room, he decided to leave the safety of the pack and go Feral.

Even though the business has now grown, Nick is still involved in all elements of the business. From filming and editing to business development, project management through to sweeping up, making brews and feeding the studio dog.

He is a life long Manchester City fan, a Dad of three, and attempts to play golf sometimes.

Sophie has a strong background in Project Management, working previously in a global IT business, overseeing large-scale projects and constantly delivering on time and to budget.

Sophie produces our animations, pre-production planning on all shoots and is our financial genius. We’ve also used Sophie’s voice as a voiceover on a few of our animations!

If she’s not in the office bossing us all around, then you’ll find her up to her neck in vegetables in her garden – you couldn’t possibly meet anyone who loves gardening more than her..
