Sync Films

Independent Not for Profit Filmmaking

Everyone’s Story Matters. Our films strive to make a difference.

“Sync Films” was born as a personal project during Leo’s time at WAC Arts Weekend Arts College in 1998-2002, initially serving as a working title for our budding filmmaking collective. However, it quickly evolved into something more significant. It became the unifying umbrella under which our fellow filmmakers, whom we studied alongside, came together. This was our journey as filmmakers from the classroom to the creation of our independent films and collaborative endeavours.

Meet The Filmmakers

Leo Baker, recognised as the Weekend Art’s College student of the Year, and Patricio Meneses-Carrington, a celebrated writer and poet who has earned the prestigious Camden Award. Leo’s filmmaking finesse and Patricio’s exceptional visual and creative storytelling talent come together.

But it’s not just about filmmaking; it’s about shared dedication to autism advocacy. Leo and Patricio are actively involved in the Camden Autistic Adult Advisory Group and the Camden Autism Co-Researcher Group.

Their unique blend of personal experiences within the autism spectrum and creative skills transforms concepts into captivating cinematic experiences, infusing our films.

“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”

We want to make this crystal clear: We’re 100% independent and self-funded, operating on a micro-to-no budget to support our filmmaking projects. Our dedication and commitment to our craft are unwavering. We don’t rely on nepotism or political correctness to advance our films. Instead.

Furthermore, our filmmaking doesn’t aim for financial gains. We personally invest in every aspect, ensuring complete financial autonomy. This safeguards our creative process from external influences, allowing us to authentically realize our distinctive vision. Most importantly, our projects are crafted with absolute neutrality, free from any political bias, preserving our unwavering commitment to artistic integrity.
