Leah McGurk, ProDUCER
Leah McGurk comes from south London in the United Kingdom, which is where she met Ben Haven-Taylor while working on short films at University College London. Currently, she’s studying in Toronto, and was able to make the flight down to Massachusetts to work with Ben Hosking to produce “In the Off-Season.” She enjoyed working with the international crew and on an ambitious shoot. Badass female filmmakers inspire her, such as Ava DuVernay, Adele Romanski, and Dee Rees. Her favorite projects have included a short, “Weird Sisters,” with an all-female cast and crew, as well as “Iktsuarpok,” a film directed by Ben Haven-Taylor with Adam Barnett as director of photography. Currently, she has an upcoming web-series and shorts to look forward to when she returns to London.
