Sydney Smith

Professional Profile
I am a student, graduating a semester early, with a Bachelors of Arts in Filmmaking Practices and a minor in English. With four school years of learning about the development and production of film, as well as experience working on several student films and projects, I have a vast understanding and knowledge of the inner and outer workings of film. I intend to further this knowledge by focusing on television script writing, as I continue working on my own personal pilots and projects.
