SIS – A Short Film

Sis” is a short film (written by and starring 10-year-old Amelia Sheikh) about a young girl who has a frightening and disturbing session with her psychiatrist.

ABOUT

“Sis” came to us originally as an audition scene that Amelia wrote and self-taped for herself (watch above/left).  But we were so impressed that we decided to shoot the scene for real and cast Hilary Barraford (who played her mother in Evie) as the psychiatrist.  It will be produced and directed by award-winning filmmaker Dawn Fields and entered it into a few film festivals that showcase works created by children.

While most of us are volunteering and donating resources, there are some hard costs like equipment and food that we could use some help with.  If you like supporting young talent, and female talent, this project is for you!  Check out the great deals we’re offering on IMDb credits!

Amelia Sheikh was born in the Bluegrass state of Kentucky and lived there until she was 6, chasing fireflys in the summer and building snow-Queens (she is an avowed feminist) in the winter. However, since she could stand herself up and jibber-jabber a couple coherent words, Amelia has been telling stories. From her earliest days, she has been performing plays with her stuffed animals and Barbies and drawing and writing stories, all the while recruiting friends and strangers alike to fill her audiences at home, park and shopping mall play area.

She has been acting professionally for over a year and has shown intense dedication to mastering her chosen art. She she recently earned a guest-star spot on an episode of the Nickelodeon series Game Shakers and she is incredibly excited to take the next step in her career with the exciting role of Evie. She is chomping at the bit to tackle this incredible opportunity!
