For arts and entertainment consumers tired of being placed in generic boxes, ROY PRODUCTIONS produces daring creative content that gives you permission to break free of your formulaic life, reclaim joy and spontaneity, and remember what it’s like to live a wild and unpredictable life. Different from other media companies, our success is defined by you bucking the algorithm and discovering your life’s true beat.
ROY PRODUCTIONS produces radio, theater, film, television and new media that rekindles our consumers' desire for autonomy and gives them the will to break outside their comfort zone. The questions ROY PRODUCTIONS asks are: How can our content open portals to our consumers' imaginations? Where will their imaginations take them? Can our content be the catalyst for our consumers rediscovering how to see? Will their open eyes create an enlightened culture? We at ROY PRODUCTIONS believe the answer to that question is "yes." It won't be instant gratification, but we think there’s no such thing as a shortcut.
PROBLEMS WE IDENTIFY:
- Media companies use their intelligence in service of their bottom line.
- Consumers of media are over-fed and undernourished.
- Producers create sugar-coated media thereby distancing consumers from the human condition.
Does the world need another media company?
Yes! Especially one run by a woman and dedicated to encouraging humans to live imaginative, emboldened lives; one that recognizes that though our future may be full of robots, we don't have to become one.
Is it possible you're being overly ambitious?
We believe it's important to act at the top of our intelligence and this is ours. We've spent years becoming an "expert" and though there is much to learn we're ready to go public and open the floodgates of ideas and collaborative thought.
What are your initial projects?
We're still in the research and development phase and asking a lot of "What If" questions. That said, we've got three big projects in the cooker: A theatrical comedy A Swan on the Edge of Danger, a feature length film production of Macbeth set in the American West, and a podcast series The Erin Roy Show - thoughtful conversations with bad-ass women.

Where is ROY PRODUCTIONS headquartered?
Good question! Our founder Erin Roy works out of Brooklyn, New York and Jackson Hole, Wyoming. We have plans to include Birmingham, Alabama and Los Angeles, California.
How can I get involved?
We're in need of investors, interns, and "believers" who don't have the capacity to invest their time or money but have connections to people who do.

SOLUTIONS WE BELIEVE IN:
- ROY PRODUCTIONS uses our intelligence in service of our consumers.
- Our content is authentic and eliminates the need for overindulgence.
- We're not afraid of making consumers uncomfortable. May it lead to a country of citizens who make courageous choices not limited by fear.

Sylvie Scowcroft is a New York native producer and performer. Always torn between two worlds, she studied Mathematical Economics and Dance at Colorado College. She went on to work on the corporate side of Bank of America before jumping back into the more creative side with ROY PRODUCTIONS. These days she aims to combine her experience in economic problem solving with her artistic capabilities to create practical, effective solutions for art making. She is driven by her interest in providing more opportunities for artists to more easily be artists. As a choreographer, dancer and singer, this mission has led her to produce and perform in a wide variety of theater, dance and musical performances across the United States. She has recently begun exploring how her work, and art in general, can make a positive social impact and harness the power that live performance can provide.
Liza Miller is a rising senior at Connecticut College, who will be applying her affinities for writing and art to her position as the Creative Assistant at ROY PRODUCTIONS. Her area of study is psychology, but she intertwines a love and respect for comedy into as many areas of her academic and extracurricular life as possible. Her preferred style of artistic expression is writing, but she also harbors a love for filmmaking and graphic design. A Minnesota native, she was admittedly attracted to New York City by the tantalizing spirit of Saturday Night Live and the delusional hope that Lorne Michaels lingers outside of 30 Rock in his spare time, but the thing that ultimately propelled her to make the move was a fascination towards the great accessibility to art of all kinds that the city offers . Her past experiences in sculpture, painting, computer science, film editing, and photo editing have served as her motivation to pursue the endless relationship between comedy and art.
