Highly technical and experienced Self-shooting PD and Edit Producer. Hundreds of hours of FS7 & C300 shooting as well as glidetrack/Moza gimble/interrotron kit to get the perfect shot/motion timelapse. Entirely self-sufficient - have shot multiple broadcast documentaries as a one man band. I’m known for making warm, often very funny films, both independently and directing talent. From January 2021 I will be a qualified drone operator.
I've shot, directed and edit produced acclaimed single documentaries (Trump’s Unlikely Superfans, Fox Wars, The Yorkshire Clamper) and prime-time series, both observational documentary and fixed-rig, having recently worked on First Dates for 5 series. I've presenter led experience with my BBC documentary 'Trump's Unlikely Superfans' being presented by Angela Scanlon.
My BBC1 film 'Fox Wars' was one of the highest rated 10.35pm's in recent years with almost 1m more viewers than the slot average. It received a plethora of positive reviews with the Telegraph calling it "wryly revealing portrait of the creature that divides the nation." and the Guardian saying "Fox Wars felt as genuine as GBBO was artificial. It may not have been, of course, but credit to the director and producer for succeeding in making an usual slice of people's lives look that way."
I have a proven ability to quickly forge relationships with key contributors in often sensitive circumstances.

Leon made two films for our company, landmark Films: BBC1 Fox Wars and BBC1 The Hole in the Road Inspectors. He proved to be a confident and talented self shooter and an all round nice chap to work with, collaborative and easy going in the cutting room. He's also got a remarkably wide tecchie knowledge, which comes in very handy on locations in enabling all sorts of extra shots to be achieved - time lapses, slo mos, CCTV footage, GoPros etc etc.
