Meet The Team

Holly Cocker

Producer / Director & Co-MD

After completing her Documentary Film MA, Holly dived into the TV world and produced and directed her first broadcast documentary for CBBC, My Life: My Birthday that Shook the World. Holly’s brilliant work and commitment to television led her to become a Media Guardian’s One to Watch in 2012 and a Broadcast Hot Shot in 2013.

In 2012 Hey Sonny were extremely excited to have her join the team where her quick learning saw her swiftly move from working as a Shooting AP on CBBC’s BAFTA nominated My Life: Breaking Free and various other docs to her current role as Producer / Director. Holly is now Co-MD of Hey Sonny.

Holly is integral to the development team, helping us win commissions for Radio 1, BBC Three and CBBC. Holly’s strong shooting skills can most recently be seen in CBBC’S The Racing Set and her excellent directing won her and the team a Radio Academy Award for Radio 1’s Tempted by Teacher.

Recently, Holly has recently made a film for Radio 1 – Parents in Prison and Directed our latest RTS winning film for BBC Three with Kate.

Holly is currently Directing our latest CBBC My Life with Freya.

When not shooting, Holly is the one who drives our development.
