Skye Von is a writer, filmmaker and VR content creator based in NYC, but often travels the globe for her work. She once shared a Jeep from Timbuktu to the Sahara with Henry Rollins.
Committed to write and visualize stories, which inspire inclusion and portray a more real picture of the outside world, Skye focuses on stories that push diversity forward. She seeks out to tell stories that engage, educate, and delight, and she uses both the page, the silver screen, and the metaverse to do so.
Skye has written multiple features and short length screenplays that have received admirable attention and awards. Her feature screenplay Us has been optioned by Entertainment 360. She has recently completed her first novel, Time's End. She contributes to such publication as UploadVR and Hammer&Tusk on emerging trends in Virtual and Augmented Reality. Currently, she creates VR experiences for The Wall Street Journal, Condé Nast, and USA Today. And she is slated to direct her first feature length film The Ghost, The Girl and The Texan. Furthermore, Skye teaches directing and VR narrative storytelling at the New York Film Academy.
She is a member of The Association of Women Directors (AWD), New York Women in Film & Television (NYWIFT), Filmshop, Film Fatales and Sci-Five.
Skye was selected as the 2016’s IFP/Indiegogo Fellow at the NY Media Center for the VR experience Falling Out of Love and as a semi-finalist for the Final Draft Big Break Screenwriting Contest 2016 for The Ghost, The Girl and The Texan.
