Skye is a Writer/Director/Producer working in Narrative Film, VR and Branded Content. She is based out of New York. Skye recently completed a VR music video for the band Aloud, which led to her creating two more VR experiences for the band, which she is currently collaborating on with the New York Institute of Technology to bring to life. Along side these projects, she is producing VR for a variety of clients from fashion to branded content. But VR and branded content is not all, later this year Skye will be directing the feature Miss Independent, a coming-of-age story. And she is slated to direct Invisible Lines, a Mexican-American love story, in January 2017. As a writer, Skye has recently completed the feature screenplay Us, a Turkish-American Co-Production, and the first part of a series of Young Adult Novels for Disney.

Here is a sneak peek to Skye’s project, Falling Out of Love: a VR music video experience, and be sure to follow the Indiegogo campaign here.

Again, congratulations to the winner and welcome to our space!
