Director Biography - Leigh Tarrant

Leigh was born in North London and attended comprehensive schooling in Southgate, North London. He went on to study at Mountview Theatre school. From there he became a full time musician playing bass guitar for some London based bands such as GBH, The Unexplained and finally Prime Cut. Eventually a career in advertising yielded an insight into TV advertisement editing and an understanding of corporate filming. After many successful years being based out of some of London's leading advertising agencies (AMV.BBDO & Grey London respectively) he went on to set up his own production company (Skooch Media) based in the south of England. He still plays, writes and records music, as well as staying active in film production and the corporate side of video production. He has three daughters from his first marriage. He resides in the south east of England.

Director Statement

It's a great privilege to at last work on my first feature film, whereby I can produce and direct and be as creative as possible in the genre of telling a ghost story. Most of my work is for the corporate sector, either documentary or music films, so this is a refreshing avenue for me to work on. I now can only hope that I've managed to capture some mystery and suspense for the audience to enjoy.
