Amory Leader works at Big Book Media Ltd as a Producer and Development Executive for feature films, as well as offering script and story consultancy services for writers and producers. Amory’s recent credits include BLINDED BY THE LIGHT and ALL THE DEVILS MEN.
Amory began his career in film working in the servicing department of Capitol Films, Europe’s largest independent sales agency at the time, dealing with such titles as Sidney Lumet’s BEFORE THE DEVIL KNOWS YOUR DEAD, Robert Altman’s Oscar winning GOSFORD PARK and Paul McGuigan’s LUCKY NUMBER SLEVIN. It was at Capitol Films that Amory first began to read scripts and provide coverage for the company’s productions.
A background in music led him to work with maverick director Tony Kaye (AMERICAN HISTORY X) as music composer on his film BLACK WATER TRANSIT (Laurence Fishburne, Stephen Dorff, Karl Urban). Following this Amory went on to compose the original score for the British feature film GHOSTED (Prod. Art Malik, Dir. Craig Viveiros).
Moving into production Amory took on roles supervising music performances on camera, working with the likes of Antonio Banderas, Susan Boyle, Samantha Barks and director Simon West. He then went on to develop and produce his first feature film ALL THE DEVIL’S MEN (dir. Matthew Hope, starring Milo Gibson, William Fichtner and Sylvia Hoeks).
He has recently been working with Gurinder Chadha OBE (dir. Bend It Like Beckham) in several roles including Script Consultant on ITV’s BEECHAM HOUSE (Best TV Drama 2021, National Film Awards) and as Music Editor on BLINDED BY THE LIGHT (New Line Cinema) where he worked with Sony Music to incorporate Bruce Springsteen’s music onto the soundtrack of the film.
He is currently developing a new slate of genre films for Big Book Media, starting with UNSUNG (dir. Chris Turner) set for production 2022.
