Producer, Talent Campus alum form LeeLee Films

Shingle has five projects in the works

After working with Wim Wenders for seven years, Korean-German producer In-Ah Lee teamed up with Talent Campus alumni Grace Lee, a Korean-American director, to launch Los Angeles-based LeeLee Films.

With five projects, Lee is working with partners in Germany, Eastern Europe and South Korea as well as with big-name talent.

And she’s producing a Romanian pic that has attracted two unlikely exec producers: Wenders and Martin Scorsese.

Catalin Mitulescu’s “The Way I Spent the End of the World,” a Romanian-lingo film set in Bucharest during the last days of Nicolae Ceausescu’s dictatorship, is the director’s first feature.

“Marty and Wim opened a lot of doors. Without their help, we wouldn’t have gotten any funding,” Lee said.

Lee has also joined German producer Oliver Damian to coproduce two films to be directed and written by cinematographer Phedon Papamichael and is doing another film called “Smells Like Butter” with Sandra Oh starring.
