Leslie Alcantar is an emerging location sound mixer, editor, and photographer. She has made a commercial for her town’s local pizza shop. Alcantar has also been the location sound mixer for several student films, and most recently was the assistant editor for a short film called Sheet Music. Currently, she’s a foley artist for another short film called Codename: Darkroom. She is also working on her own personal photography and works as an assistant editor at MrBeast.
From a young age, I’ve always been drawn to media. I believe film, television, and photography are such beautiful and powerful works of art and communication, and I’m truly honored to be able to play a part in it. I really like the idea of taking something simple and transforming it into a new piece of art: whether it be a project started from scratch or simply changing a few things to enhance the overall project.
I want to be a voice for those who don’t often get seen in mass media. I want to be known for making people laugh and for people to see my name and be excited about whatever it is I am up too. I work to create new stories through my art and strive to constantly grow and learn new ways to make meaningful and beautiful stories regardless of what my position is in the process.
