After graduating in Direction and Cinematography at National Film Conservatory in Lisbon, he worked as cinematographer and camera operator in various projects. Then he joined MinistérioDosFilmes as a “young promise”, and started working as an assistant director for Marco Martins and José Pedro Sousa. The first campaign that Leone directed, called “Amor”, about Azheimer’s disease, was highlighted by Shots. Still photography has also been an important aspect of his work, having photographed for several brands such as NOS, Super Bock and Continente. Leone’s first TV series, “Finisterra”, is in pre-production and starts shooting at the end of 2023. The series won the first prize in the Writing and Script Development contest, promoted by Netflix and ICA and the Most Promising Project at the PÖFF festival in Estonia.
