Leanne Campbell Ambassador
Up until 2009 Leanne had never considered films as a career option but all that changed in 2009 when she was on set for ‘Knowing’ a feature film staring Nicolas Cage. In 2010 she once again delved into the film area on the program ‘Wifred’ These two experiences sparked the journey she is now on.
She joined ‘Metro’ TV a member group of Channel 31 and 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 and from this the program ‘TRW’ was formed. Leanne has been working on this project for several years, perfecting her techniques so that the program is ‘commercial TV quality.’ Her earlier attempts while the content was good lacked some of the technical experience needed in sound and lighting. To this end she has been working at learning and upgrading her skills and equipment to rectify these problems.
Dissatisfied with just waiting for her agent to ring with opportunities, she began actively searching for opportunities to learn and be involved in other people’s projects. During her times on set for other people she has learned her way around sets and has gained valuable knowledge of how the actors and crews interact with each other and learned 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 the music video ‘Lies I want to hear’ became a reality. Leanne began her own production company Passion Media Productions because she found most projects required women who were young or slim and she wanted to create some memorable and life changing films where normal is actually represented in the films.
In 2013 Leanne began thinking about script writing and has written two short film scripts and is planning on filming them later in the year.
Brenton Foale developed a love for acting at the age of ten, having attended filmmaking workshop camps run by the South Australian Association of Screen Education (SAASE). At the age of seventeen he appeared alongside Michael York in the ABC/BBC produced tele-movie “The Four Minute Mile” as a journalist. From there he appeared in Neighbours, All The Way, TVC’s, and other television and film appearances.
In 1992 Brenton began performing magic as “The Black Fantasm” and “Bento the Magic Clown”, characters who he continues to perform as today. He won awards for his magic through the Magic Circle of Victoria, and is now Vice President of the Magic Circle, a huge honour for magicians.
The last few years Brenton has appeared in several Australian movies, particularly “Chocolate Strawberry Vanilla” directed by Stuart Simpson, “Murderdrome” and “From Parts Unknown: Fight Like a Girl”, both directed by Daniel Armstrong, and music videos. Brenton can soon be seen in the upcoming cinematic release of “The Legend of Ben Hall”, written and directed by Matthew Holmes.
In 2013, Brenton wrote his first screenplay, a thriller called “DEAL”, which has gone through many transformational drafts, the 23rd of which is our filming draft. Two years of preparation, and refining, has gone into the script and we are now ready to begin filming. Brenton’s housemate, Ruth Richards, who also appears in “Deal” as Fiona Reynolds, co-wrote the final draft with Brenton.
Casting for “DEAL” has been unconventional, in that nobody was asked to audition. Brenton hand selected his cast, asking them to provide him with show reels and headshot photographs, and from there Brenton was able to determine who should play which characters.
Brenton is very excited about this production, and has a cast with great screen presence and experience in the industry. He has worked tirelessly on developing and promoting this film, on every social media platform available.
After “DEAL” Brenton will be working on another thriller screenplay, plus a biopic of Jesse Younan, a talented musician and song writer who lost his life to cancer in 2006 at the age of 35.
