Caspar Leopard is an award-winning composer and filmmaker based at Baltic Studios, the popular East-London recording studio he setup with his brother, Orlando Leopard, in 2012. Recent artists include The Rolling Stones, Bjork, Jessie Ware and Liam Gallagher.

Caspar won ‘Best Score’ at the Global Lift-Off Film Awards in 2018 for his music for ‘The Happy Genius’ a film by Hannah Mckibbin which received nominations for ‘Best Short’ film globally. Since then Caspar has been busy composing scores for various TV and film projects including the BAFTA nominated drama ‘Through The Gates’.

Caspar is involved in several musical projects outside of his film composition. His solo debut EP ‘Restoration’, produced by Luke Smith (Foals, Depeche Mode, Everything Everything) was released in 2018, followed by single ‘Is This Real?’. He is currently working on an ambient album set for release in 2020.

As a filmmaker Caspar is inspired by the psychedelic films of the 70s and surrealism. Leopard has made a number of short films in different mediums that explore some of the bigger questions in life. For his solo music Leopard created a series of self-directed video's ranging from experimental dance ('Expire Pt. I') to animation ('Son Of The Morning’) - which recently won ‘Best Music Video’ at the 2019 London International Motion Picture Awards (LIMPA). 2018 also saw Leopard collaborate with ex-Aardmann animator Stefano Cassini (Wallace & Gromit/Chicken Run/Tim Burton’s ‘Corpse Bride’) to create ‘Is This Real?’, a stop motion animated short that is on the film festival circuit having premiered at Cinequest. Caspar has recently finished his debut fictional drama ‘The Blood Bride’ (co-directed by Leopard and Hannah McKibbin and scored by Leopard) which is set for release later this year.
