Accomplished action filmmaker Leo Hoorn instills his work with a grand passion for the outdoors, one driven by that inexhaustible determination to capture incredible imagery. Leo brings an irrepressible inventiveness to every story that reflects his own upbringing as a backcountry filmmaker and action sports cinematographer who honed his skills in the pristine backwoods of his native Smithers, BC. Known for his intimate and moving camerawork, Leo has directed and shot work in the remote reaches of the planet for brands like Jeep, Dodge, BMW, Travel Alberta, and The North Face among others. Largely self-taught, Leo began his career as a cinematographer and editor before putting all of his skills together as a Director/DP. As such he has contributed to such classic adventure films as All.I.Can and Into the Mind along with many short films and commercials through the years as director, DP and editor.
