About Syd

I am an award winning freelance writer, producer and director with multimedia experience in a variety of different projects including feature films, shorts and online branded content.

My previous short films have screened at national and international festivals including London Short Film Festival, BFI Future Film Festival, Camelot International Film Festival, Garden State Film Festival and New Filmmakers Los Angeles.

I have recently made the move into feature films and most recently completed work as the assistant producer on ‘The Rizen' & ‘The Rizen II’ from Lost Eye Films, both due for release in late 2016 and 2018 respectively. In addition to this, I am also currently producing and directing my first feature length documentary.

If you're interested in working together, please send me a message and let's collaborate!
