"Sonja Perryman is not only an amazing writer, producer and actor... She’s an amazing collaborator. Sonja and I have collaborated in many capacities. As actors on stage, as producers on my film, "Time 2 Surrender," and now as co-writers of an upcoming feature film. Sonja is smart, creative, imaginative and pays great attention to detail. Of her many strengths, what I’ve been blessed to enjoy the most when working with Sonja is her collaborative spirit and nose to the grind attitude. She always gets the job done and sees it through with an amazing attitude. I absolutely love collaborating with Sonja and am proud to call her my creative partner."
"Sonja Perryman was an inspiring lecturer in our entertainment education course. She has the unique experience of having bridged the creative world with research and audience voice on public health and social issues to develop entertainment education for the needs of today. Her stories really opened up my student’s eyes about the opportunities within the entertainment education world and gave them insights into possibilities of things they might do with their lives and work that they hadn’t considered before her talk."
