Leah Walker

Since childhood, Leah’s been fascinated by any form of storytelling. An avid reader, Leah started writing plays and short stories early on which led to a love of theatre. Directing offered the chance to combine all of her passions, and Leah was fortunate to direct several plays in high school including a successful production at the Fringe Festival. In 2004, Leah co- founded Neophyte Productions to pursue passion projects of her own while also nurturing other creative voices. Leah was fortunate to have written and directed several short films and two feature films which screened theatrically and at festivals around the world, including THE THIRD EYE which was called “A Bizarre and Chilling Thriller” by The Boston Globe and went on to play for two years on Super Channel. Leah’s sophomore film, THE PRIVILEGED, starring Sam Trammell from TRUE BLOOD and THE FAULT IN OUR STARS and JOSH CLOSE of FARGO, had a successful festival run and theatrical release followed by broadcast on Crave TV as one of their most watched Canadian films of the year. Since her last film, Leah has moved into television development and has become a sought after Story Editor working on screenplays from notable Production Companies including Resonance Films and Goodbye Productions. Most recently, Leah has completed an adaption of a novel to direct as her third feature film. In addition, Leah spends her time guiding the next generation of international screenwriters and filmmakers.
