After leaving Wilmington, North Carolina for Manhattan, Boyd matriculated into then worked for a post-production trade school before hiring into its sister company. His first major screen credit was the Academy Award nominated Winter's Bone (2010), of which he was attributed by director Debra Granik with shaping into a neo-noir, away from observational iterations.

He worked as an on-line editor for the Sundance documentaries Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work, The Tillman Story, the SXSW documentary Strange Powers: Stephin Merritt and the Magnetic Fields and subsequently in creative offline editing with the Independent Spirit Award nominated film The History of Future Folk and the Adult Swim television series The Heart, She Holler and Delocated.

The film was lensed at 65 locations across North Carolina over a period of 29 days with a production budget of only $300,000, qualifying it for the now-defunct North Carolina Film Incentive 25% refund. Boyd won Best Director, Best Screenplay and Best Feature Narrative for the film at the 2015 Williamsburg International Film Festival. He is currently writing a follow-up feature film, an international crime drama concerning 3D printing.
