Leeway Films

After working within agencies, corporations and startups, I realized a much-needed solution to greater content quantity in a saturated market. I tapped into my passion for filmmaking and launched Leeway Films. The production company melded commercial video production with narrative filmmaking and storytelling. Within the first three years, Leeway exponentially doubled its annual revenue YOY, completing work for companies like Starbucks, Amazon, Microsoft, Acura, and more.

Branding

Branding

The Leeway Films logo is an adaptation of a historic butcher trade sign. It was inspired by the cast iron sign outside of my late grandfather’s traditional German butcher shop in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains. It’s a constant reminder of the authenticity I hope to bring to my creative work.
