Sylvie was born in France where she trained as a visual artist. She moved to the UK in 1989. After studying animation filmmaking, she joined forces with documentary and animation producer Orly Yadin to establish Halo Productions Ltd as a creative home for independent animation filmmaking aimed at adult audiences. At Halo she co-produced with Orly the comedy animations series Treasure for BBC2, and in 1997 they jointly wrote, directed and produced short documentary animation SILENCE, which won the Golden Hugo in 1998 and was short-listed for Academy Award Nominations in 1999. In 2002, Sylvie was awarded an Animate! commission for which she made ROOM SERVICE , produced by Eyal Shaphyr and executive produced by Orly Yadin, winning Best Experimental Film at Imaginaria in 2005. During her producing years at Halo, Sylvie started an ongoing creative relationship with up and coming writer/directors Robert Morgan (THE CAT WITH HANDS) and Liana Dognini (BYE BYE).
With the desire to make live-action projects and features, Sylvie set up Animus Films Ltd in 2002. At Animus, Sylvie has produced award winning shorts – THE SEPARATION (Cymru BAFTA winner, 2003) and MONSTERS (Silver Melies, 2005) by Robert Morgan, HIS PASSIONATE BRIDE (BAFTA nominated in 2004) by Monika Forsberg. Sylvie is currently involved in developing a slate of distinctive feature and TV projects - horror, drama and animated comedy.
