About Us 

Crunch Leaf Productions are all about the story. Telling stories, both real and imagined has been a key driver for the evolution of human intelligence. We believe in the power of imagination and story to create unique worlds. By matching the right people to the right story, we make magic. There are many ways to share stories from film to theatre and podcasts. We put the story first and let it choose the best medium.

Let's go on an adventure!

Amelia studied a BA Theatre and Performance at the University of Cape Town, moving to London in 2015 to spread her creative wings. A history in Theatre, Film, Dance, advertising, and Immersive events has given her a plethora of useful storytelling tools. Working with producers such as Sonia Friedman and Greenacre films, she has gained the experience she needs to establish Crunchy Leaf Productions in 2020. Amelia's talents lie in finding the right stories with the right people and using her excessive positivity to make them a reality.
