Leo John Paul completed a degree in Visual Communications in 2006 and began working as an editor on short films, documentaries and music videos. In 2007, he approached director Gautham Menon and got an opportunity to work as a spot editor for Vaaranam Aayiram (2007) and worked under the guidance of editor Anthony. He continued to work with the team for the production of Chennaiyil Oru Mazhaikaalam, which was later shelved. Leo John Paul subsequently got an opportunity to be the main editor for his friend Milind Rau's romantic comedy film, Kadhal 2 Kalyanam, and completed work on the project, though it still remains unreleased. In late 2011, he worked on the making of the song video of "Why This Kolaveri Di" from 3. Soon, the song became the most searched YouTube video in India and an internet phenomenon across Asia. Within a few weeks, YouTube honoured the video with a '"Recently Most Popular" Gold Medal award and "Trending" silver medal award for receiving a large number of hits in a short time.
