ABOUT LEANDER WARD
Leander co-directed, produced and filmed The Crimson Wing - Mystery of the Flamingos, a visually stunning look at life and death for the flamingos of Tanzania’s Lake Natron. As the 2009 premiere release of the new documentary feature strand, Disneynature, it garnered glowing press reviews and collected awards at both The Jackson Hole and Wildscreen wildlife film festivals and at the International Festival of Music and Cinema in Auxerre, France.
With 20 years experience on productions for Disney, National Geographic, and the BBC, as well as a range of branded content for clients including the Natural History Museum, Leobo Private Reserve and Above Magazine, Leander’s creative choices with a camera, in the editing room or in a music studio recording a score demonstrate a distinctive personal sense of drama and appeal. Leander graduated from the USC School of Cinematic Arts (1994) and makes his home in Somerset, England with his wife Laura and their two daughters.
