Sync Films Independent, Not For Profit Community Based Filmmaking
Everyone’s Story Matters. Our films strive to make a difference.
Sync Films independent Filmmaking is led by student of the year Weekend Art’s College Filmmaker Leo Baker and Camden Award Winning Writer and Poet Patricio Meneses-Carrington. As members of the Camden Council Autism Partnership board and Autism Research group, they are dedicated to raising awareness of autism and promoting inclusivity and acceptance. Growing up with autism themselves, filmmaking has been a deeply personal journey for them. With their personal experiences as fuel, filmmaking becomes a transformative outlet, empowering creative expression and profound connections.
“Our genuine interest is to passionately create independent dramas of both short and feature length film. Forging longtime collaborations with other film makers, creatives and principal actors”
It is crucial to highlight that our independent film production is 100% self-funded and not affiliated with major studios. We don’t make any money from our films. Everything is funded by us. We have more creative freedom and flexibility to bring our unique vision to the screen without any outside biases or limitations. And, we make sure there’s no political bias in our projects.

Through our inclusive productions, community-based filmmaking provides a stepping stone for filmmaking volunteers, regardless of their educational background or disabilities, to get involved in the creation of our productions. This involvement unleashes valuable experience in the movie-making process.
