Rochelle 'Leanne' White
Rochelle White is a New York-based filmmaker, visual artist, and entrepreneur. 

She holds a B.A in Behavioral Health and an M.B.A. in Business Administration from Alvernia University. The skills she acquired through education led to the founding of Mindz Productions, where she uses storytelling and art to bring attention to social change. Through this vessel, she has produced several renowned films. 

In 2015, White directed and produced the short documentary, P.S. I Can’t Breathe. The film screened at schools, museums, and several film fests, including the Winter Film Awards and Short Film Corner at Cannes. It also won an award of recognition from the Best Short’s Competition and is featured on Indie Wire’s What to Watch This Weekend. The short remains in the catalog of universities around the world. 

White’s second film, Layla’s Dilemma (2017), a short Christian narrative, was given a broadcast deal through Short’s TV. It is set air on Direct TV and AT&T Universe. 

As a visual artist, White has exhibited her multi-media paintings at the Mayor’s Office ENDGBV in partnership with Escape Artist Collective’s group exhibition in 2018 and 2019. 

White also actively promotes wellness and health within schools, worksites, and creative professions. As a certified yoga instructor, she formed the mobile fitness company, Creative Mindz Yoga™ in 2012, providing on-location fitness and meditation services throughout New York. 

This medley of filmmaking, art, and fitness keeps her focused, disciplined, and imaginative. She uses these passions to thrive as a businesswoman, creative, and mother. 

White is currently working on two feature-length social impact documentaries: Middle Men Documentary Trilogy and Meet Lila Green. Both of which she hopes to inspire social change.
