Leah Anova

  • Discipline:Cinematographer
  • Program Year:Project Involve 2013


Originally from Quezon City, Philippines, Leah Anova grew up eating lumpia (eggrolls), playing under the sun, and running with her dogs. She studied at Trinity College and earned a Bachelor’s of Arts in International Affairs, but quickly grew tired of the life of a wanna-be politician. Instead, she picked up a 35mm SLR camera and was hooked. She went on to attend The American Film Institute (AFI) Conservatory, where she studied and earned her Master’s of Fine Arts in Cinematography. Equally adept at shooting video and film, Anova has delivered directors’ visions in music videos, shorts, documentaries, and features. She is known for her ability to think quickly on her feet, her strong sense of framing, her love of light and her collaborative spirit.
