Filmmaker's note

Lance thinks outside of the box. He excels when taking artistic risks as an actor/writer/director that makes an impact on an audience. He responds well to others who don’t ‘play it safe.’ Those who thrive on being completely creative. Those who tell the story through a different lense or unique angle. He got his start in theatre and then switched gears to film and has recently shifted again, becoming a writer/actor/director of his own projects. He loves collaboration with all artists and hopes to assemble a company of like minded artist who want to break the mold of film, television, theatre and web series. “Let’s do this.”
