debut latest work, SAYCHEESE, this fall
Rising filmmaker Lawrence Lamont has collaborated with The Art Direction, to produce his latest
work – Say Cheese, a 36-minute short film set to premiere at film festivals this fall.
Detroit, MI, June 26, 2012 – The collaboration with The Art Direction stays true to the young
filmmaker’s commitment to making artistic films from every perspective of the human experience.
Written and directed by Lawrence Lamont, Say Cheese is the whimsical story of a lonely
photographer living a mundane existence on the fringes of a small town when happiness
unexpectedly creeps into his world and his reality goes in and out of focus.
The film short, an unconventional love story, unveils the hope that lies within each soul longing for a
deeper connection; exploring the evolution of self. “This film is an emotional crash course that
resolves in a mysterious way,” Says Lamont. “ We are able to see the true power of love and its
ability to shift a person’s existence.” The film is a refreshing tale that beautifully finds a new way to
tell the oldest story in the book.
Say Cheese will mark the seventh screenplay from the Detroit native. The film honors Lamont’s
notably unique perspective while creating an innovative alliance with one of Detroit’s emerging
creative groups, The Art Direction. The collective, an arsenal of creative professionals, is a full-service
branding agency that activates visual design, photography and digital projects in select cities.
Lamont’s most recent work was the critically-acclaimed comedy, Cornerstore, released in the
summer of 2011, running in AMC theatres in the brand’s Detroit and Atlanta markets. The film
featured, Roger Guenveur Smith (“American Gangster”, “Deep Cover” & “Do the Right Thing”); Judge
Mathis (native Detroiter, TV star) and Dwele (R&B star, native Detroiter) and has made the young
filmmaker ‘one to watch’ in the industry. Say Cheese features Kevin Nowak and Courtney Zimmer in the lead roles and was shot in Metro Detroit.
