Leigh and Jason have been collaborating on narrative and documentary films for fifteen years. They have honed their skills working in the industry, pursuing academic study and watching too many movies.
Leigh started out at Maysles Films where she cultivated an appreciation for filmmaking that captures life and lets it speak for itself. She spent nearly a decade at the American Museum of Natural History production managing Science Bulletins – an innovative, multi-media program that offers the public a window into the excitement of scientific discovery. Presently, Leigh juggles looking after her four boys and making films for Kinobserver. She earned a BA in African-American Studies and English Literature at the University of Virginia and an MA in Media Studies at the New School University.
Jason recently edited Dark Universe, the latest planetarium “space show” created by the American Museum of Natural History. He is on staff at the Museum and edits documentary shorts with its Science Bulletins team. Jason’s skills as a director were born out of years of producing features and shorts for Kinobserver and industrials and documentaries for clients that include Cartier, Ness Technologies and Columbia University. He holds a B.A. in History from Trinity College and a J.D. from Emory University School of Law.
