Writer/Director Dean Leon Anderson

Dean Leon Anderson is a writer / director born in London, England. He is an alumnus at the University of Greenwich, and founded production company Velvet Gold Pictures in 2012. Trained by BAFTA nominated film director Yann Demange (’71), Dean has premiered work twice at the London Short Film Festival, alongside other prestigious festivals. Dean’s short film Jasper was nominated in 2015 for Best Narrative Short at Pan African Film Festival Los Angeles, and screened at the BFI Southbank in London.

My career in film began with assisting on one of various film projects developed to give a voice to underrepresented storytellers. B3 Media was at the helm of these projects, and the experience gave me the essential skills, experience and confidence to start my journey making my own stories. I’ve since directed films that have screened internationally, and elevated my career. I have been elated with coming back to the company that started it all for me, and developing my recent film Class 15. B3 Media’s talentLab workshops gave me the opportunity to improve my script through experimenting and feedback from those more experienced. This would not have been possible without the industry’s push for creative diversity. B3 Media has without a doubt been crucial to my growing progress as a filmmaker.
