Aaron Michael Leong grew up in Benicia, CA where he attended middle school and high school. Upon graduation he attended San Francisco State University where he finished in Theatre Arts with a double emphasis in Performance and Directing.
He has performed in theatre for SF State’s main stage productions, Ancient Chinese Secrets Theatre Company, Breaking Ground Collective Theatre Company, Kaiser Permanente’s Educational Theatre Programs and other smaller theatre companies. He has also done costumes, make-up, and lighting for theatre and has even stage-managed.
With a strong background on and around the stage, Aaron slowly transitioned to work in front of the camera; acting in films, independent features and shorts, and commercials. His resume also includes voice over work.
From there he moved behind the camera, starting a video production company in 2002. His company, 4th Wall Productions, is focused on weddings and other events, however, the company has progressed to accommodate narrative shorts and features from pre to post. Because of his martial arts background, he has also done fight choreography and stage combat in some theatre productions and independent shorts.
I have studied with renowned cinematographers such as Yuri Neyman, ASC, Vilmos Zsigmond, ASC, Dean Cundey, ASC, David Stump, ASC, and Suki Medencevic, ASC.
Aaron is an Associate Member of the Society of Camera Operators, SOC as of April of 2013. He is currently represented by Cast Images Talent Agency in Sacramento, and SF Casting and Nancy Hayes Casting, both in San Francisco.
Aaron currently resides in the Natomas area of Sacramento with his beautiful wife and 2 beautiful young children.
