Brett Leonard


Brett Leonard has been at the forefront of the digital media revolution for his films like cult-classic Lawnmower Man, which introduced the concept of Virtual Reality, and was also the first filmmaker to pioneer modern stereoscopic techniques and photo-realistic CGI in his hit IMAX 3D film T-Rex. He also directed the cyberpunk drama Virtuosity, starring Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe.

Leonard’s feature film, Hollywood Rooftop, is the first film to be shot in both 360VR and traditional cinema. His other feature, Triumph, starring Academy Award nominee Terrence Howard (Empire) and RJ Mitte (Breaking Bad) will be released sometime in 2020.
