"Throughout our eight+ years of work in the sync space, we have personally noticed an overwhelming disparate number of female versus male participation in this field. With that being said, when sheWrites came to us with the chance to do our part to change this, we jumped at the opportunity,” states SILO:’s Jack Ormandy. “Though we understand this is only one small piece of a larger problem this industry has faced throughout its history, we are thrilled to partner with sheWrites in giving women a hand up in a vocation where these immensely talented creatives have far too often been overlooked. We are honored to be part of this moment in history and plan on this being the first of many future endeavors in involving more women in the sync space."
“At sheWrites we've found the pandemic hasn’t stopped us, and has in fact allowed us to find new ways of working and bringing women together internationally, including a Kpop camp with Interscope last winter,” shares sheWrites co-founder Violet Skies. “I met SILO co-owner Neil Ormandy on a writing session and we spoke about bringing more women into the male-dominated sync world and we're so happy the SILO team has helped us make that a reality. We've brought together the best in sync and pop talent, and Charlie and I are extremely excited to be working with SILO on this sync camp!”
