A few weeks ago I contacted Lawrence to ask some questions about the film industry, and what he’s doing currently. Our conversations were nothing if not informative. I learned about Clive Owen, and the new film directed by David Schwimmer called “Trust.” Among many other things, I learned what it’s like to work in the film industry. I encourage all of you to follow along throughout the week and learn something too. If your curiosities have made you ponder what its like for a member of the film crew community, this interview goes plenty far in unveiling the mystery behind the quasi-esoteric nature of film making.
Since the interview is relatively long, I will break it up in several parts. Today we will show his Demo Reel and Biography. This will give us look at a some of his older work. In our discussions Lawrence told me he was in the process of updating his Reel to include newer shots. Regardless, It expresses the exceptional talents of this young film makers point of view, and reveals the beautifying quality in which he films things.
Tomorrow we will post part one of the interview.
Introduction: The Reel & Bio

While attending Columbia College, he gained experience shooting on both film and video and output a good number of shorts. He is now a freelance cinematographer and camera assistant.
While taking inspiration from paintings and various art forms, Lawrence composes creative choices in both camera and light. He has shot a large variety of films and has explored a plethora of palettes and styles of visual storytelling. His work consists of many award winning films with visual elements that have moved both the story and the audience. Lawrence is primarily based out of Chicago, IL and Los Angeles, CA.”
