Director Biography - Leanne Campbell

Up until 2009 Leanne had never considered films as a career option but all that changed when she was on set for 'Knowing' a feature film starring Nicolas Cage. In 2010 she once again delved into the film area on the program 'Wilfred' These two experiences sparked the journey she is now on. Joining 'Metro' TV, a member group of Channel 31, she began learning all the aspects of film and TV production on the job. During this time she began developing ideas of what she wanted to produce in film and TV. Leanne has been working on perfecting her techniques so that her skills are of the highest quality. Not satisfied with just learning at Metro, began developing networks within the film community and started volunteering on student films to gain more experience and greater opportunities. Six Lovers was her first break into crew work on an independent feature film where she learned valuable skills and set experience. Further developing her passion for the industry. This dissatisfaction with waiting pushes her to find ways to learn and she now knows her way around sets and has gained valuable knowledge regarding how the actors and crews interact with each other and valuable skills for both crew and on screen work.

In 2012 Leanne traveled to Los Angeles to attend the 'Taxi' music conference and met Lani Ford a singer/songwriter from New York and filmed and edited the music video for her song 'Lies I want to hear' in association with Justine Jones.

Leanne began her own production company Passion Media Productions because she wanted to create some memorable and life changing films where 'normal' is actually represented in the films. Her ideas for films are such that she is always looking for different stories to tell or a different view point. In 2013 Leanne began thinking about script writing wrote a short film script 'Love in Motion' which she also directed. Having never edited a film before, she has been learning how to use the editing software to edit the film. Currently she has 4 other scripts in various stages of completion with her first feature script 'Twisted' being assessed.

Leanne has been working in the industry in various ways including some notable TV shows. Four seasons of Wentworth, various appearances on Winners and Losers and Neighbors. Films include, The Cup, 10 Terrorists, Healing, the award winning Tropfest film 'We've all been there'. In recent years she has supported films here and in the United states. 'Touch' by director Dawn Fields USA, 'Found' by director Dawn Fields USA, 'Short Distance' by director Nic Barker AUS, the award winning film The Dead Guy in the Trunk' directed by Lucas Scheffel AUS and Red Sky Candidate 5238 directed by Stewart Marshall AUS.

In 2014 Leanne saw the need for a premium diverse film festival and branch out. She successfully ran the POP international film festival, which has now become an annual film festival that complements the work she is currently doing. Due to this successful outcome she is negotiating with regional locations to be able to repeat screen the festival in country Victoria in the future.

Leanne is also a radio presenter in her local community on 99.1 Smart FM. In 2016 she was asked to develop, launch and run a youth film festival in Swan Hill.

Director Statement

This is my very first film I have Directed, written and produced.
I wanted to bring a concept to life on screen that is rarely talked about in film which is what it is like for a man to come out of the grief cycle.

It as been a tremendous learning experience personally for me.
