The Team


Ed Swatman - MD and Executive Producer/Director - Ed started his career around '1000 years ago when everything was in black and white' (according to his children). With over a decade of sport broadcasting experience, including single and multi camera events and almost two decades of brand, commercial and corporate communications experience, Leaf Films is his baby.  A company borne out of a passion to deliver the best of the best to all clients, whilst always smiling.


Laura Dixon - Producer, PM and Location Manager - Laura is one of the best in the business. With BAFTA winning and multiple repeat shows on her CV a Producer or PM doesn't come any better connected.  Over a decade in the industry Laura's little black book goes well beyond "people who work in tv" Facebook groups.


Perrin Sledge - Development Producer/Director - With a degree in Drama and an MA in Film Direction from the Northern Film School, Perrin is a producer / director experienced in drama and documentary who has been developing show formats for the past three years. An award winning drama director who’s directed and produced shows for the BBC and Sky, Perrin's short films have been attached to feature films in cinemas and he has a keen eye for unique stories and mainstream content with a strong, relatable, narrative drive.


We each have credits across all mainstream broadcasters, plus deep knowledge and understanding of the Agency and Corporate Sectors. Outside of the core team we collaborate with the best in the industry across multiple genres. 

Consisting of Executive Producers, Director/Producers and Production Managers we're well equipped to deliver any project regardless of size or complexity.

Leaf Films are here to add Premium Quality to any moving content project, and we'll strategise alongside the marketeers to ensure fit for purpose and fit for budget solutions.
