Leonie recently joined Park Village as Business Development / Executive Producer to help herald the company into a new creative chapter.

Using over a decade of extensive experience developing both established and burgeoning production company identities across an evolving advertising landscape she will help forge the development of a new, progressive production offering that builds on the company’s incredible legacy.

Having consistently worked with the most awarded agencies, creatives, producers and brands over the last 18 years, Leonie brings a wealth of knowledge from working with some of the world’s most respected broadcasters, film studios and top commercial production companies in London, including her time working for Blink, awarded four times ‘production company of the year’.

Leonie prides herself in supporting both emerging and established filmmaking talent and connecting them with creative opportunities to showcase their exceptional craft. She’s been lucky enough to work with some of the most sought after and prolific directors in the business, such as Wim Wenders and Emmy award winning Harry Bradbeer (Fleabag, Killing Eve).

I was born in….
A state of shock

I now live in…
A greater sense of wonder

But if I could live anywhere, it would be…
My spirit home, a Tudor Manor

Right now, I’m binge-watching…
Orange is the New Black. I experienced my first pangs of box set addiction with series one but since then I know a director who directed an episode and the show used 'Pretty Waste’ by my mates band so the degrees of separation have shrunk.

The last track I listened to was…
Peaches - D*** in the air. She put in an unbelievable gig at The Royal Festival Hall this year.

The app I couldn’t survive without is…
Drop. I’m learning about natural wine.

Social media is…
An opportunity that needs to be handled well

When we can travel again, I’ll be heading to…
Iceland

The most important lesson I’ve learned in 2020…
Count your blessings

The best/worst thing about lockdown was…
Best - seeing people appreciate and reconnect with the natural world. Because the future needs that.

What the film industry needs is…
More diversity

The best advice I’ve ever been given..
Be honest with yourself

My biggest inspiration is…
A defiant attitude

The person I would canonise is…
If we are talking global good here surely Attenborough

If I wasn’t... I’d be…
Gallery owner or restaurateur

My last meal would be…
The Beef En Croute at Casse Croute, in Bermondsey
