It all started in the cornfields of Eastern Wisconsin. At the ripe age of 12, Leclerc and his brother picked up a Mini DV camera and began making short films on the family farm. These experimental indie short films quickly sparked a passion for filmmaking and visual storytelling in Leclerc, driving him toward a career in the art of filmmaking. His love for people and stories eventually relocated him from the shores of Lake Michigan Wisconsin to Los Angeles, CA. Leclerc has quickly become known as a nimble, multidisciplinary director in the industry, blending his keen sense for polished visuals into raw, immersive narratives that dance between real and surreal.
Over the years, Leclerc has had the opportunity to travel to over 40 countries collaborating with leading brands such as GE, AUDI, CHEVY, GIANT, BMW, SONY, and many others. Leclerc’s work has garnered numerous prestigious awards, including his most recent work with GIANT, landing him a GOLD Addy for “best-branded content” at the LA Addy Awards.
Leclerc’s passion for storytelling, aesthetics, and the outdoors has developed into a passion for building unique experiences. In 2020 Leclerc took the skills he learned on the farm and built a DIY camper van to escape the Covid lockdowns. The project’s success led him to ditch modern life and travel full-time in the camper. In his free time, Leclerc enjoys lifting weights, biking, hanging out with his GF, playing piano, and exploring the best life has to offer in both food and nature.
