Leo Sedgley is a National Film and Television School graduate, who after several years as an independent artist joined the school on its post production sound course only to emerge a director. His first post graduation film The Leafcatcher was funded by Switzerland’s Fondation Vevey and shot over 8 months with an ever morphing, skeleton script and was selected to screen at this year’s Edinburgh International Film Festival.
