LEAP films

THE TEAM

Mark G Lonsdale | Producer

Mark has been a producer for 20 years. He has made broadcast programmes for Channel Four, Channel Five, MTV and the BBC. After a successful career in music videos, where Garage was his genre, he has gone on to make award winning short dramas and documentaries.

His focus at Leap is campaign films for fashion, telecoms and lifestyle brands.

“Our big thing at Leap is to build trust and a rapport with our clients, that allows us to be creative. Then we can focus on crafting a story together, something that will really hit home and get a big audience response. Connect, create, then bingo!”

Lucian Evans | Producer & Director

Lucian is a highly experienced producer and occasional director at Leap Films. He has produced corporates, commercials, music videos, super 8mm films and animations in his time at Leap.

As co-owner of Leap Films with Mark, Lucian is keen to continue building Leap’s creative brand of story making in an ever changing digital landscape. A keen motorcyclist, cyclist and runner, Lucian is often found exhausted and snoozing in a darkened edit suite.

“We really pride ourselves on developing talent here, on every project we are looking to build our team and pick up on the most exciting talent in London and beyond.”
