Having helped form the company in 2002, Leo was soon recognised by Boards International magazine as one of the top five new editors. In 2011 Televisual magazine voted Leo number 6 in the top 10 best commercial editors.
Over the years, Leo has managed to successfully combine commercial and long form. His commercial collaborations include Harmony Korine, thirtytwo, Sara Dunlop, Mike Long and Armando Iannucci, with his most notable award being a Clio in 2008 for best editing for Thorntons 'Stuck', directed by Harmony Korine.
Leo already has a very promising career in long form, which started in 2007 with the cult British horror 'Mum and Dad' (Steven Sheil). He then went on to edit Korine's fourth feature film 'Trash Humpers', 2009. He is currently finishing the feature film "Gozo". Directed by Miranda Bowen of 2AM Films, it is a project conceived by and financed through Speade.
Leo is now based in Los Angeles, cutting commercials out of Spotwelders. Though we're always very happy to have him back at Speade for British jobs.
