Profile

More

My name is Syd and I am a freelance multimedia producer and director who graduated with first class honours from Canterbury Christ Church University in 2012.

Following my university studies, I secured an internship with leading social media company, Telegraph Hill where I  worked on various projects for BBC Marketing, most notably as Lead Digital Producer of the final series of BBC’s Merlin. However, film production was always the long term goal and I've been freelance in film since 2013.

Outside of freelancing, I am an award winning filmmaker and my previous short films COSPLAYGIRL and TEXTUAL RELATIONSHIP have screened at national and international festivals including London Short Film Festival [UK], BFI Future Film Festival [UK], Camelot International Film Festival [UK], Garden State Fil m Festival [USA] and New Filmmakers Los Angeles [USA].

Alongside my experience in producing TV pilots, digital branded content and short films, I have now started transitioning to feature films and have since completed work as an assistant producer on The Rizen & The Rizen II from Lost Eye Films, due for release in 2017 and 2018 respectively. 

Whilst I continues to write, develop and produce short films for myself and other filmmakers, I am currently producing and directing my first feature length documentary.
