Advertising & music video director
Leo began his career as a scriptwriter on TV comedy shows. After studying film at the NY FILM ACADEMY and advertising at the BBDO WORDSHOP, Leo built an impressive body of professional work: over the past ten years, he has directed commercials around the world for a long list of clients that includes McDonald’s, Pepsico, Visa, Yandex, Adidas, OBI, Samsung, Demix, Mars Tele2, AliExpress, Kaspersky, Volkswagen, and many others.
Having worked with BBDO, Publicis Group, DDB, McCann and other major creative agencies, he is comfortable in a variety of styles, and enjoys mixing and matching genres for surprising and exciting results. Leo's favorite projects are those that require strong art direction, a unique approach to transitions, and complex technological solutions. He loves working with CGI, especially in mixed media, and is always on the lookout for opportunities to introduce irony and humor into even the most conservative categories, like cars or food.
