From 2010 to 2015 Somi produced a number of films and documentaries including five seasons of a highly popular reality series about the British culture for a millennial audience.
Somi realised that many premium brands face a challenge in capturing the digital native audience. In 2015 she launched Smart Cookie Media, to help bridge the gap between millennials and the brands.
Somi and her team have produced short films for Steinway, Savile Row, Bentley, Bremont and Burlington Arcade to name but a few. The team are is currently producing a feature-length documentary about Luxury Brands in a Millennial World. The film features in-depth interviews with C level executives of Bentley, Steinway, Jaguar Land Rover, Bremont, Gieves and Hawkes and The Economist, among others. Somi also visited the United States, where she interviewed the prolific New York entrepreneur, Gary Vaynerchuk.
In late 2014 she was part of the film crew for a project for Bentley and Savile Row, sponsored by Apple and entirely shot on the iPhone. That was a turning point when she observed the cross-section of technology, millennials and the luxury market.
