About Us


From Philly, to the Marine Corps, to Filmschool


Leo Cunningham was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA above a family owned Irish Pub. Like his father before him, he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps Infantry and deployed with the 22 MEU in 2000. Upon returning from that deployment he moved on the 2nd Recon BN and worked as a military instructor on a Mobile Training Team in Yemen, in support of the Global War on Terror. 

Upon his honorable discharge, he moved to California and perused his passion for storytelling by directing plays, shooting short films and studying acting. He was accepted to the prestigious USC: School of Cinematic Arts and graduated with a degree in Film and Television Production.


Currently, he is an Independent filmmaker and has produced and directed television commercials, online web content and specialize in script writing and directing actors.  He recently completed a two year contract, directing a traveling theater production across the country, preforming for members of the United States Military.
