Jamie Lawrence


Jamie Lawrence has balanced short films with a career directing commercials. With his debut short, 2008's Somewhere Only We Know, he showed he could tell a story without any dialogue at all. Follow-up comedy Darryn Exists debuted in the NZ Film Festival, and got an Honourable Mention in Nashville. In 2008 Lawrence won a scholarship — and raised $30,000 in sponsorship — to study at the New York Film Academy.

I want to tell stories that speak to people and influence them. I love telling these stories on screen — I still get excited every time someone hits record on the camera. Jamie Lawrence
