Leo Faber is an executive producer with 20 years experience as a producer, director and writer. After first trying VR in 2015 Faber started making VR content with Pixelcase VR, producing and directing numerous VR experiences for brands such as Intel, Audi and Facebook. In 2016, recognizing a need for a more creative approach to the medium Faber reached out to internationally renowned video artist Shaun Gladwell, showed him VR for the first time and a bromance blossomed. After making their first work together they founded BADFAITH, a content collective of filmmakers, artists and punks dedicated to experimenting in the new immersive medium. The BADFAITH work, Shaun Gladwell's ORBITAL VANITAS, premiered as part of official selection at Sundance 2017 and was acquired by The New York Times for their NYTVR app.
Faber recently secured the first ever Screen Australia VR production finance for a documentary project for the upcoming BADFAITH VR documentary Storm Rider for SBS.
Prior to drinking the VR ‘Kool-Aid’ Faber had many years experience in the development and production of factual television and has created hundreds of hours of programming for broadcasters such as the BBC, National Geographic, Discovery, Channel 4 and ITV. Faber was also the Head of Content at Red Bull Australia.
