"Leslie's launch of the Filmmaker of the Month initiative at the DC Office of Motion Picture & Television Development helped highlight the work and profile of dozens of local filmmakers who often struggle with receiving mainstream attention for their work. My brother Brandon and I were both fortunate to be recognized with this honor. The visibility and recognition of the award, and the relationship-building that has come through Filmmaker of the Month events, has made a major impact on our careers and has considerably strengthened the film community here in DC. Leslie has true talent, she is an incredible advocate for local artists and business owners, and has always been extremely supportive, professional, and lovely to work with. I recommend her highly, particularly for artists and small business owners who seek to gain more visibility and recognition for their work."
