Director and Action Innovator - Lawrence Ribeiro has created over 100 action sequences—from fist fights to car chases.
In early 2021, Lawrence plans to release his latest project “Part Deux: The Chase,” the sequel to his award-winning short film “The Chase.”
In 2019, Lawrence released his latest book, "Action Realism: The Art of Action." MovieMaker Magazine reviews, "Action Director Lawrence Ribeiro's new book goes beyond its scope as a technical production manual to become a holistic treatise on creativity... ‘Action Realism’ is a great overview of an intimidating aspect of the moviemaking process."
In 2017, his film “The Chase” won 8 Best Action Awards. It exemplifies what can be done through raw stunt work, camera movement, locations, sound, and editing.
You can look forward to his bold collaboration with three cinema legends. A unique project with Hollywood VFX legend Doug Trumbull (2001: A Space Odyssey, Blade Runner). An exceptional artistic endeavor with cinematographer legend Chris Doyle (Hero, In the Mood for Love). Lastly, a hush-hush project with a Hong Kong martial arts icon.
Lawrence is a contributor to MovieMaker and Filmmaker magazines; and has been a keynote speaker for PromaxBDA and Film Independent. He has served as a finalist judge for the Emmy Awards and the Venice Television Awards.
