ABOUT

Leslie Von Pless
I work as the Senior Specialist, Multimedia Production for Environmental Defense Fund. I shoot and edit short documentaries, branded content, explainer videos, social share videos and animations. I’m also a part 107 licensed drone pilot. I previously worked as the Multimedia Producer for Lambda Legal and the Multimedia Manager for the Women’s Media Center.

I specialize in nonprofit video storytelling and video strategy – developing purposeful, compelling, effective stories while also focusing on successful video distribution and promotion.

My videos have been featured in Fast Company, The Washington Post, Buzzfeed, Upworthy, People Magazine, Mic, Refinery 29, and many other outlets. My short film created for Lambda Legal, Flying Solo, won the Grand Jury Award for Documentary Short at Outfest: The Los Angeles LGBT Film Festival and my independent short film, The Count, won the Best Amateur Film Award at the Wildlife Conservation Film Festival.

As a freelancer, I work with local and regional nonprofits and do my own independent documentary video and nature photography. I am an outdoor enthusiast; I love the Northeast and care deeply about the land, water, and wilderness of this region.
