A director strongly connected to the world of fine art and exhibitions, Freddie Leyden has joined The Visionaries for freelance representation. Freddie has cut his teeth directing films about art and artists for the world's leading museums and galleries such as Tate, The Whitechapel Gallery and National Portrait Gallery. From this he has developed his own unique and exciting style of filmmaking steeped in artistic and historical visual references.
His unique films, which both reference art and are artworks in themselves, have made him internationally sought after. He has made commercials and short films for the biggest brand names in the art world and beyond.
Nowness Picks featured his recent film about the fashion designer Gareth Pugh. This is episode one of a series called ‘Throughlines’, devised and directed by Freddie in collaboration with Christie's.
Freddie’s first short film with the performance artist Enam Gbewonyo "Nude Me/Under the Skin: A Resurrection of Black Women’s Visibility" premiered on Artsy and is beginning its festival circuit life, having so far been selected for Portland Dance Film Festival and the BAFTA and BIFA qualifying Aesthetica Short Film Festival.
With an array of eye-catching and art focused films in his portfolio, we’re sure that Freddie will be adding to it and sharing some more striking and artful imagery very soon.view more - Hires, Wins & BusinessLemonade Reps, Wed, 01 Dec 2021 14:22:31 GMT
