SYDNEY ROBERTS (Executive Member / Writer & Producer)
Born during a blizzard in Asheville, North Carolina on January 18th, 1993, Sydney Roberts has been honing his creative skills for as long as anyone can remember.
Acting in plays from Kindergarten on, Sydney began writing and directing plays as a youth delegate to the Western North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church, and after serving for four years had written, directed, and starred in over a dozen productions, some of which were played to crowds of over three thousand.
Once he began studies at North Carolina State University for Political Science, Sydney directed his artistic focus towards audio production, a life-long passion that quickly consumed his interests. During this time he obsessed over creating and mixing digital music, fine-tuning audio tracks, and composing custom film scores over his favorite movies.
After deciding political science was not for him, Sydney enrolled in the Film Studies program at Cape Fear Community College in Wilmington, North Carolina, which allowed him access to professional equipment and expertise. His time at CFCC afforded him experience with every facet of audio post-production, more focused direction for screen-writing, and entry-level skills for each position on a film crew throughout all aspects of production.
"Singularium" is Sydney's screenwriting debut, with several other projects already written or conceived. He also owns an aerial photography company and co-runs an audio studio where he works as an audio engineer, sound designer, and foley artist.
He plans to focus on writing, directing, producing, and possibly acting after Singularium, with the ultimate goal of playing a role in the revitalization of Wilmington's film industry, where he currently resides with his fiance and two cats.
