LAWRENCE "LAW" WATFORD

"I WRITE SCRIPTS THAT MAKE PEOPLE THINK AND FEEL..."

"I direct films that make people think and feel..."

"I produce films that make people think and feel..."


Ultimately, I want to be able to communicate my feelings about life, love and humanity in a way that can only be accomplished on screen. I want to persuade people to consider or reconsider they way they see life, by allowing them to connect to the "reality" of a fictional character and see life through that character’s eyes, and empathize with the decisions that character makes based on that character's truth.
 

I want cinema to be a safe space for people to enter with their biases, prejudices and preconceived ideas while actively giving themselves the chance to try on some new ideas and connect to someone on screen that they would ordinarily refuse to sympathize or empathize with based on those biases.


 

Lawrence or "LAW" as he's called is a screenwriter and director based in Brooklyn NY. He's a husband, father of three with a passion for connecting with people through cinema.

His wife complains that his days are spent wasting away on social media trying to solve the world's problems through lengthy posts and bitter feuds on Facebook with college college friends that turned out to be on the wrong side of the political spectrum...
 

When social media addiction permits, LAW spends his time working as a storyteller, making short-films and writing feature length screenplays that will ultimately be passed over for the next JOHN CARTER, PLUTO NASH or WILD WILD WEST.
 

He's been at this for more years than he cares to admit and still has yet to actually make money from it... But he realizes that the race is not guaranteed to the swift, but he who endures long enough to have a friend who works for CAA, UTA, CIA, etc...
