1/29/2016 update

I’m currently in pre-production on a short historical documentary called First Encounter about the period of history, from the time the Pilgrim’s landed on Cape Cod until they settled Plymouth Plantation.

I’m also in-production on an experimental short about the Moon.

Chorus

Chorus from Leo Brady on Vimeo.

Chorus explores the reasons why people give so much of themselves in support of local arts, in this case, a choral group, the Dedham Choral Society. Their story is told through interviews and concert footage. lb

Bee Queen

Bee Queen, a film by Leo Brady (2010)

An 8 minute Experimentary (Experimental Documentary) about the plight of our bees.

The story is part tribute to Guy Maddin, part fable and part experimental. At this time, the plight of the bee population is desperate. However, no one seems to know the answer.

This film is a black and white, 16:9, short or the beginnings of a longer film, inside scenes filmed with super16mm film, outside in 24p video. Running time will be around 8 minutes. It combines Super 16mm b/w film, 24p video and digital images. I shot it using an Eclair ACL2 S16, a Panasonic DVX and a Nikon digital camera

Transitions

Transitions from Leo Brady on Vimeo.

This is an experimental documentary. It deals with war and its impact on those left behind. I attempted to use sound and image only to evoke thinking and feeling. It combines 16mm color film, 24p video and digital images. I shot it using an Arri S, a Panasonic DVX and a Nikon digital camera. lb
