As a music journalist-writer myself I witnessed the rise and fall of many artists over the years. They’ve inspired me to create “Leland Campbell”, a fictional character that everyone would love to be real. During the creation process and story development I counted with the support of Director John Brandon. We really enjoyed writing together “Leland”, a story that touched our hearts deeply, a story we want to share with you all.

Synopsis: “A local newspaper writer Andrea Marchi follows Leland Campbell’s musical career on his way to fame and fortune as the lead singer for the rock band Sun King. During the journey Andrea witnesses the craziness of a rock tour, and discovers that Leland is also a very talented painter artist. She encounters all sorts of strange stories and speculation surrounding one of Leland’s famous paintings which opens all Sun King concerts in a video board: A Red Door”.

“Leland” is a unique film. It presents itself as the chronicle behind the newspaper story of a topic that doesn't seem to be taken very seriously by its readers all that often: The life of a Rock Star. 

Journalist character, Andrea Marchi digs in and discovers Leland Campbell is much deeper than a superficial Rock Star.  She finds he is a talented human being who tries to light his own darkness in life with art and beauty, in the form of powerful music and paintings. 

Leland is famous for his great music and commanding voice but also gets recognition as a credible artist because of a Red Door painting, a prop that stands out in all his music videos and concert appearances.  But as Andrea realizes, the Red Door is so much more than just a prop, it's the key to a deep, dark secret… What is the Red Door really all about?
