Generation Next Champion – Lee Tomes

Lee Tomes is an award-winning filmmaker and managing director of video storytelling company Orange Fox Studios.

Lee has been helping businesses, brands and non-for-profits share their stories through film and video for a decade. He’s on a mission to banish bland and boring video communications…one brief at a time!

Outside of the business Lee loves to tell stories of his own and has had various projects screened at national film festivals as both a director and cinematographer. His most recent triumph came at the 2018 Birmingham International Film Festival when his collaborative short film Martin Sharpe is Sorry scooped Best Micro Short. Lee is also a keen advocate of the creative industries and is currently an events facilitator helping to organise and run Creative Coffee Leicester and Creative Cocktails in the city. Lee also facilitates a 10-week Professional Practice module for Leicester College on the BAPSCI programme (professional studies in the creative industries). Here he works with small teams of multidisciplinary creative students as they look to respond to a live brief set by a real client.

Lee is the current (2020) Generation Next Young Professional of the Year for Leicestershire. At home, Lee lives with his partner and is the proud father of felines to four little fur-baby kitties.
