“To be awarded to one or more Rooftop Films alumni filmmakers to help them to complete a short film that communicates the power of hope, collaboration and togetherness to make positive change. ” -Rooftop Films

Wow. Welp.  I just got awarded a grant from the wonderful Rooftop Films, thank you! I will be making a short doc about my mother, Susan Frost and what she does for a living. She’s an ocularist, she makes artificial eyes, meaning she hand sculpts, paints and molds the eye for her patients. It’s intimate. It’s emotional and she literally changes the patients life. I cannot wait to make this film and am thankful my mom is down to make it as well! Thank goodness for artists as parents! YAY!

Thank you Sidewalk Film Festival for awarding our new short FUNERAL best animated short film!

I had the pleasure of Directing Bella Thorne and Prince Fox for Billboard and then animating on top of the edited piece. Assisting animation by Peter Gulsvig and produced by Jessica Rovniak for the series How It Went Down. I have been working on the entire series by the way, so you should probably watch all the episodes*

I had the pleasure of directing Bella Thorne and Prince Fox at Billboard for a segment. Heck I even got to quickly design the background for them. There might be a flamingo somewhere? They were super sweet, hilarious and great to work with annnnd fashionably appareled. We worked well together and boy do they have a story for you! STAY TUNED. XO

THEY MADE GIFS of it! SHARE THEM.

Just kidding. I am however in the beginning of this trailer and had completely forgotten I had done this in 2014 for Greencard Pictures in my pjs in about one take in my own grownup room on the skype. I AM FAMOUS NOW, RIGHT?! RIGHT!!!?!?! Wheres my Rolodex?

Yup! You heard it! The famous COOKIES will screen at the famous Rooftop Films this summer July 7th a part of the Dark Toons screening. This is possibly one of my favorite NYC film festivals in that it is independent, non-profit and it screens on rooftops all summer! They are also incredibly supportive of filmmakers and I am very thankful for that. Thank you Rooftop Films! Thanks to my crew,  Sarah Miskoff, Fritz Myers and Jonathan Seligson. See you soon!

What do I do when I get an awkward interview for 45 minutes and am not asked anything really? I eat an entire rotisserie chicken without acknowledging the fact that I have a rotisserie chicken and am eating it on stage during a q & a and while talking about working with Vice WHILE cracking a Khan joke.

Basically. It was the most fun I have ever had…ever.

 

Thank you Ottawa International Animation Film Festival for allowing me to eat chicken on stage and jury the most beautiful films! It was an honor.

Till next year!

XOXOX

Acclaimed filmmaker and animator Leah Shore is officially releasing her short film HALLWAY after a wildly successful international film festival run. This is Leah’s first entirely live action film of which she is also the screenwriter.

HALLWAY is a short genderfuck black-light film shot entirely a secret sex club in Brooklyn. The film tells a story about love wherein a queer couple unleash upon each other a drug-induced, existential barrage of delusion and broken dreams.

Leah is incredibly grateful to everyone who worked on and supported this film. Especially her cast and crew. Thank you!

It’s pretty and insane. Check it out. And then watch again. And then share it.

“OH SHIT.” -Leah’s Mom

I am beyond honored and thrilled to announce that my new live action narrative film, HALLWAY will premiere at SXSW Film Festival 2015. It is my fourth film to play at the fest, but my first live action. I am literally speechless. This is a huge honor. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED OUT ON THIS FILM AND WHO HAS SUPPORTED ME. I cannot wait to show it at my favorite festival. I cannot wait to make more films, be it animated or live action or a little bit of both!

Thank you:  Henry Roosevelt, Kim Jackson, Jonathan Federico, Fritz Myers, Dorian Tocker, Sarah Stephens, Margaret Singer, Alexandra Tebano, and SO MANY MORE CREW MEMBERS AND SUPPORT. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

STILL_HALLWAY

 

Apparently I have a Wikipedia page now! YAY! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leah_Shore

I rather like it. Especially it noting that I am a FABULOUS COSTUME DESIGNER!

Other note worthy things:

I Love You So Much is still a Vimeo Staff Pick https://vimeo.com/68637065

I think it is confusing the consumer. Which is cool. My favorite comment so far has got to be  “Barbra Streisands daughter.”

My XXX-mas Holiday Card 2014 is what I consider a disgusting sucess! People are sharing it on the interweb via the reddit (it still does not make sense to me, please someone explain that to me), twitter and on cool websites like Animated Review and Funny or Die! SO COOL! PEOPLE LOVE CENSORED PORN RIGHT?  RIGHT?! https://vimeo.com/114818699

PLEASE SHARE. Be aware.

I am honored to have the prestigious Filmmaker Magazine premiere my previous film, I Love You So Much online for me!!  Please watch, laugh, watch again, show it to someone and watch a billion more times! THANKS! This could not be possible without the small crew who helped produce it: Fritz Myers, Dorian Tocker, Jarret Kerr, Ken Barbera, Crystal Pei!!!

I LOVE YOU SO MUCH:
