“Vivian is a compassionate filmmaker who tells stories accurately and with the utmost care for the communities she represents.”
Born in San Fransisco and educated at the Portland State University School of Film, transgender director and animator Vivian Veidt (she/her) has both passion and skill in telling the stories of those in vulnerable communities.
In 2007 Vivian took her first job as an animation intern in Fukuoka, Japan and fell in love with the art form. She then moved to Los Angeles where she worked as a freelance animator until 2010 when she decided to pursue a formal education in film. Since then she has gained experience in advertising, documentary, narrative short film, video game design, and live television.
In 2019, Vivian founded Chiral Filmworks in order to further pursue her newfound love of documentary, while still getting to animate whenever she has an excuse to!
Oregon born and raised, Sosha Belle (they/them) has been a part-time contract videographer for the past 12 years as they amassed the eclectic collection of skills that make for a good film producer and business owner. They’ve gained a diverse work portfolio over the years including customer service, event planning, education, stage performance, and sales management. Having even served a spell as a head lice removal technician, Sosha prides themself in being a “professional nit-picker.”
Sosha first started making videos as a side-gig to pay for their Musical Theater and Psychology education at Oregon State University, and then their Masters in Pastoral Ministry from University of Portland. This diversity of education informs Sosha’s passion for genuine human communication, as well as their flair for the dramatic.
In 2020, Sosha met Vivian at a karaoke bar and the two discovered their mutual love of visual storytelling. Sosha joined the Chiral Filmworks team in 2020 as producer for “Distance: Sex Work in the Pandemic,” and became a partner in the company in 2022.
“Sosha is a joy to work with. As the face of the company, they make everything smooth and comfortable. I felt relaxed knowing Sosha was in control of the project.”
