Vicki Lesley - Independent Producer/Director

Vicki is a documentary maker from Brighton, her twin passions are making films, and trying to make the world a better place.

She has worked in the UK television industry since graduating from university in 1999, working on high profile single documentaries and documentary series for a variety of network and cable broadcasters including the BBC, Channel 4, Five, Sky One and Discovery. She has also worked extensively in documentary development gaining numerous commissions from a wide range of international broadcasters.

In 2006, Vicki set up Tenner Films in order to produce her own work on some of the big environmental and social justice issues we face, as well as exploring many of the new, emerging forms of alternative funding and distribution - including crowd-funding (the name Tenner Films actually comes from an initial idea of getting people who support her work to give a tenner.) Her current project is The Atom: A Love Affair.
