Leah hails from Northern California and received her degree in Film Theory at Cal State Long Beach. While working on her degree, she directed music videos for local artists — which lead to her winning the Grand Prize in OnVidi’s Video Contest, and also the award for Best Video for LBCK’s “Start”.

Lena Fayre "Love Burning Alive" (Leah McKissock, dir.)

The video begins with Lena walking to a typical day of class at her private catholic high school. Once seated, she begins to daze off and stare at a boy sitting in the front row. Suddenly, the video enters a dreamscape of performances that are centered around her burning desire for the classmate. In her mind he's a badass with tattoos, who smokes cigarettes and rides a motorcycle. Although their passion can only exist in fantasy, Lena wants it to last forever.
