1st Assistant Director -Eddie Leader

1st Assistant Director – I’m a 1st Assistant Director based in the UK with over 15 years experience in the industry. I have worked with various production companies for clients such as Sony, Audi, Apple, Mercedes, Muller, Cadbury, Ford & Asda amongst others. I have a vast amount of experience working with big crews, big budgets, large crowds, stunts, animals and more. I have worked with high tech gear including Motion Control, Russian Arm, Low Loaders, Techno Cranes and Helicopters. I am also trained in health and safety with 1st Option.

I pride myself on the relationships I have with everyone on set, whether it’s with the Director, Producer, celebrities, runners or extras. I feel it’s important to work closely with everyone to make sure the job gets done on time, on budget and to a very high standard.

I studied Media Production (TV & Radio) at University. From here I landed my first job as a Runner for the BBC and went on to work for ITV on dramas stepping up to 3rd Assistant Director. I moved into the world of TV commercials working as a 2nd AD in London, before progressing into my current role of First Assistant Director, which I have now been doing for over 10 years. Since then I have worked on various TV commercials, music videos, films, corporates and live events. For further information please check out my work & CV pages.

I have a very experienced team of 2nd and 3rd Assistant Directors and Runners that I work with regularly if needed. If I am not available I can recommend other 1st Assistant Directors who may be able to help you with your project.
