"Girl and a Gun" Premiere
Girl and a Gun premiered in October 2020 as part of the drama program at the LA Short's International Film Festival.
Syd stars as Birdie, a young artist who finds herself in a life changing moment when her older mentor, Roger, crosses a boundary. This is not a story about a violent assault but rather a more subtle aggression that will stay with Birdie for years to come.
"Murderabiliac" Festival Run
This horror short by writer/director, Richard Karpala, premiered at FilmQuest 2019 where Syd was nominated for Best Supporting Actress.
It was then a part of the "Eat My Shorts" Showcase at Beyond Fest 2019, "The Shorts are Coming from Inside the House" at the Austin Film Festival 2019, and the "Horror-on-Sea" Film Festival 2020.
For her performance, Syd was called "a cuter version of Shelly Duval in The Shining."
