Hello, my name is Leland Montgomery. I’m an LA based writer, director and content creator..


In 2018 I graduated from USC's School of Cinematic Arts with an MFA in film production. I've had films screen at a variety of top tier festivals including Fantasia Fest, Hollyshorts, Outfest, Calgary International, LACMA's Young Director's Night and more. 


My thesis film Black Cat in a Dark Room won the Wes Craven Award for best horror short and is currently available on Alter.  


In addition to my narrative work, I have also worked on in-house branded video teams. In this capacity I've written scripts, overseen production and given creative guidance. 


Whether it’s narrative filmmaking or marketing, I am  a passionate and thoughtful creator who aims to create emotionally compelling work.
