I, Leanne, am an actor and a writer who has had many script ideas put to paper, unfortunately none put to film except for about 15 years ago where along with an ex producing partner I made a short film called 'Flowedaze' to hopefully sell to make the full feature. I produced, wrote the screenplay, starred in it, sang and wrote the songs and even had my hand in the costumes. But my latest idea for the film I have included a logline for on here, also came jointly from my husband. I am currently doing better in front of the camera with acting of late. Though again this is something I started many years ago. I also did radio 20 years ago. And once again this year took up hosting a radio show with my husband also, at our local community radio station. 98.5 Apple FM. Can live stream it anywhere in the world. I have also just started stand up comedy. Just had my first legitimate open mic comedy night gig a couple of weeks ago. I have so many ideas that need to get out into the world.
(I have my resume below as I am not sure it is added or not under resume. And it has my credits as I am not going to individually put down my credits under credits.)
