Jobless and without concrete living arrangements, Virginia native, Joyce Sherrí, stepped off a Greyhound bus at New York City’s Port Authority bus terminal on August 23, 2010. Armed with her passion for creative writing, Joyce hurled herself into the independent film capital of the world in pursuit of a career as a writer and director.
A year after her exodus to the empire state she was accepted into the Tisch Graduate Film program at New York University. In addition to Sherman, a comedy web series now available online, Joyce has written and directed five short films including down, down, baby which received an INDIE FEST merit award and screened as a special selection in the Langston Hughes African American Film Festival in 2014. More recently, Joyce has adapted her romantic comedy short film, The Family Romance, into a feature script and is also developing The Ages, another feature adaptation of a short film which will complete the thesis requirement for her M.F.A. at New York University.
