To Whom It May Concern:

Lance Kawas is a very talented writer/director who I’ve had the pleasure of working with on numerous projects. As a writer he has a unique voice for characters and strong, emotional connections. As a director he has the ability to illuminate the human condition and show compassion for people across the spectrum.

Lance works well with people on set, and is a good collaborator as well. I enjoy my own collaboration with him on every project that we’ve worked on together.

I recommend Lance on any film to direct and trust his instinct without any reservation.

Please feel free to call me should you have any questions.

To Whom It May Concern:

It has been my pleasure to work with Lance on the four films we have done together and I look forward to continuing that.

I have found that Lance is professional and diligent in all that he does. His pre-production skills give me great comfort in knowing that the films will be on time and on budget.

I can easily give my whole-hearted recommendation of Lance as a writer, or director. Any production he is on is in good hands.

Please feel free to call me for any more information.

To Whom It may Concern:

It has been my pleasure for the past twelve years to be a professional associate, business partner, and friend of Lance Kawas. This friendship developed through a mutual interest in screenwriting and production. This collaboration eventually led to the finalization of a screenplay which was then made into a feature film entitled ‘Street Boss’ based from my book ‘With Honor And Purpose’. We collaborated on several other projects, including the recent production of Restitution staring Mena Suvari and Tom Arnold. Other projects are proceeding to fruition at the present time.

Those familiar with the movie industry know, that unfortunately this art is also a business. While working with Lance, we brought in talent, raised significant sums of money, and took projects to the screen. His actions in all of this were ethical, reasonable, and patient. Believe me I know ethics having spent twenty six years in the FBI as an agent and a supervisor, and ten years as a certified fraud examiner.

Based on the foregoing, I heartily recommend Mr. Kawas for involvement in any aspect of a theatrical production from either the artistic and/or business perspective.

To Whom it may concern,

I’ve hired Lance to direct two feature films (Street Boss and Restitution). I can think of no better person to handle the pressures and personalities of making feature films. Lance learns the story from top to bottom, so he can adapt quickly to the delays, changes and challenges of filmmaking. Lance has a great eye, and a calm easy going personality that keeps everyone happy and working hard. He works harder than anybody I’ve meet in the business. He loves movies, and it shows in his work.

Through the years of making films together, Lance and I became friends. He is a giving, patient, and trustworthy man. Those are hard traits to find in this business. I would not hesitate to use Lance on any aspect of filmmaking.
