Skyler (Sky) Dylan-Robbins is a New York City-based filmmaker and visual journalist who’s passionate about telling (and watching) character-driven true stories that address deep societal questions.
She’s currently a staff journalist at NBC News, where she produces short documentaries about the cultural and spiritual shifts in how we think, connect, and exist in today’s unpredictable world. Previously, she was the Senior Producer, Video at The New Yorker magazine, where she created short films, series, and video supplements for print stories.
